In response to the recent protest undertaken by members of the Open Air Outreach and the subsequent counter-protest on the part of students, Kevin McElwee ’18 has established the PUFightsHate fundraiser through Venmo.
A small group of Christian protesters amassed outside of the Wilson School across Washington Road Tuesday afternoon. The protest consisted of a few men holding signs that read “Jesus or Hellfire,” “Gamers are Murderers,” “Feminists are Whores,” and “Women Belong in the Kitchen.” The men voiced their ideas at various passersby, declaring that they were “failing at life” and “being a disappointment to God.”
“I believe that everybody could take advantage of going to a therapist, I think everybody could take advantage of going to a nutritionist, and I think everyone has, to some extent, an unhealthy relationship with food,” Feig said. “I think that the more we talk about that, the more we realize that, the more we provide support for each other, and provide spaces that are safe to express those anxieties.”
The average wait time for appointments used to be one to two weeks, with some students experiencing up to three-week wait times. The shortening of the initial consultation allows more students to be seen at a faster rate.

“We really need to step back and recognize that we can’t afford to look at this future without critical eyes,” explained Smith. “Technology is always used in good ways and bad, and even when it’s used in good ways, it has an impact that we can’t necessarily predict. It had indirect effects that aren’t necessarily intended.”
“All of the sudden in 1945, four black students show up on campus,” said University Trustee Robert Rivers. “There were a lot of questions among the Princeton University alumni, but there was a lot of joy . . . and it was a major, major thing for young black folks in the town. They were heroes.”
Last year's recipient of the James Madison Medal, given to an alumnus who achieved a distinguished career in public service or advanced the graduate education program, was Pedro Pablo Kuczynski ‘61, current president of Peru. Since receiving the award, however, Kuczynski has experienced a fall from grace.
John “Newby” Parton ’18 and Maggie Pecsok ’18 have been named the recipients of the University’s 2018 Moses Taylor Pyne Honor Prize.
