Housing, I have a confession to make. I know that my contract stipulates I mustn’t change my living arrangements — by moving my bed or swapping roommates — without your consent. But I no longer live in the Dodge-Osborne single you provided me. Sure, I store my clothes there, but I, along with my 18 classmates in ISC 231-234, have moved to Carl Icahn Laboratories. The sculpture (horsehead? ribosome? whale?) in the atrium is my workspace, the lounge atop the lecture hall hosts my naps and my meals — be they late-lunch or late-night Studio 34 — are eaten on the cafe tables. If not for the lack of a shower, or (more importantly) a cluster printer, the only thing pulling me from Icahn would be my other classes.
Having been at Princeton for a mere six weeks, I have no right to give advice. I do have an interesting anecdote, though, that even the seniors among us can enjoy.
