The merits of being a moderate

However, being a moderate is the best way to be objective and fair, especially as a student, with political matters to which we are exposed everyday at Princeton. Although it may be tempting to get washed up in the fires of polarized, divisive thought, being a moderate and being able to think across the political spectrum without prejudice allows us to decide what really is the best course of action.

How a hate group spurred Princetonians to action

I have always hesitated to do anything political. But students just like me took action that day against the Open Air Outreach protest. They did not have to respond at all. After all, the protest occurred while classes were in session, when many of us would be studying Locke or cleaning chemical glassware.

Reading for the sake of reading

Reading novels is an important investment in itself, and those who neglect to read fiction are at a loss. Fiction paints unexplored worlds that we cannot find in our textbooks.

A kind letter to the trolls

I speak to those who do not critique the articles, but rather degrade the writers…. Please stop your unorganized, purely emotional, illogical, and cocksure spiel.

Ordinary courage in an extraordinary situation

Han Yeol became a hero because he felt that he had a duty to his fellow countrymen and nation. His fortitude, however, is hard to come by. Even now in Princeton, where the threats of police brutality and unjust arrests are low, many students hesitate to criticize what they believe the government is doing wrong.

Obsession with creation

From the moment we first enter the FitzRandolph gate to commencement, we Princetonians have an endless supply of work.

Noblesse oblige: Failure among Korea’s elites

It often seems that people are ruled predominantly by their self-interests, whether they are educated at the finest universities or born into the most prestigious families. But this pessimistic outlook is challenged by the selflessness of the journalists who uncovered the Choi Soon-Sil scandal.

The hidden power of writing seminar

As a bright-eyed, eager freshman at the beginning of the fall semester, I was sure that I had passed all the rites of passage to become a Princetonian. I had gone on my Community Action trip, participated in the myriad of orientation activities, and endured the line at Labyrinth Books for my first textbooks. 

The pre-med taboo

The very word “pre-med” evokes images of consecutive all-nighters, temper tantrums, and the banging of one’s head against a wall.
