With no exception, students and faculty participating in these three events were overwhelmed by her grace, her gentle sense of humor, her persistent interest in the students’ aspirations and her encouragement for them to serve the world. She exuded wisdom, humanity and love of life. She was my inspiration and mentor. I loved her and shall miss her wisdom and gentle encouragements.
“Class Council will provide a full refund” read the expected email I received the next afternoon, along with the 39 other forgotten freshmen, whose days of preparation, weeks of anticipation and hours of travel culminated in a spectacular view, from the pier, on a clear, New Jersey night, of our class cruise setting sail for the New York harbor.
The members of the classics department were surprised by the article on the choices of the 269 members of the Class of 2015 who declared concentrations in the humanities. Our department received no mention in your article, despite the fact that the Class of 2015 will have 16 classics concentrators, as opposed to 12 in the Class of 2014.
Regarding “Support group PINS offers discussion forum for kinky sex and BDSM” (Tuesday, April 16, 2013):While the new BDSM group doesn’t sound particularly menacing, it is nonetheless ridiculous. Why celebrate hurting people and being hurt? We might just as well have a student group dedicated to playing “mercy,” or a ...
Grade deflationRegarding “Editorial: Reexamining grade deflation” (Monday April 15, 2013):I'm surprised that in all the discussion of grade deflation, there's one sense of deflation that's generally overlooked.

For the past month, photographs of students have been plastered all over campus, from light poles to residential colleges. These photographs are part of the “What I Be” initiative, pioneered by Steve Rosenfield. However, unlike most photo shoots, this one requires participants to bare their most uncomfortable insecurities to the public. The exposition of these sensitive issues, ranging from weight to depression, enables members of the community to realize they are not alone — we are all suffering from insecurities and various self-esteem issues. Just because we don’t talk about it doesn’t mean that it isn’t real.
The University recognizes the importance of offering housing to support graduate students and help generate community. For that purpose, Princeton is proud of and committed to maintaining a residential community that fosters social and intellectual interactions. A key tenet of the Campus Plan of 2008 was for the University to continue to house a majority of its graduate students – hence the commitment to house approximately 70 percent of enrolled graduate students. This goal has been a long-standing target for Princeton that far exceeds those of our peers.

As leaders in our eating clubs, we would like to take this Pride Week to recommit and reaffirm our constant goal of ensuring that people of all backgrounds, experiences and orientations have a safe and fun outlet in all of the eating clubs.
I am pleased the Editorial Board came out in support of “sex reassignment surgery.” The endorsement to 1) go beyond limitations set by insurers and 2) support trans Princetonians as part of our institutional commitment to being a welcoming and inclusive community should be applauded. However, a few points should be addressed.
I agreed to be interviewed because I was excited for the opportunity to elevate the issue of sexual assault in the campus consciousness and help spark student interest in related activism. However, I became frustrated when I realized that the “angle” was only going to be “Administration hides survey results!”
