Students are "swiping right" on Tinder to win a Cardi B concert

Don’t be surprised when you see students swiping away at their phones this week. They are swiping right—a “yes” signal—on the dating app Tinder in order to win a concert featuring stripper-turned-rapper Cardi B. On March 30th, Tinder started the #SwipeOff challenge, in which students from the 64 selected colleges competed with each other to swipe right on the most people. The University is now in the “Finals” round, competing against eight other colleges in order to enter the Championship round. Ans Nawaz ‘21 heard about the contest online and, after verifying that it was legitimate, sent promotional materials to friends, residential college Listservs, Facebook groups, and GroupMes, encouraging students to “swipe right for Cardi B.” Video by Sarah W.

NEWS | Princeton Graduate Students Hold Feminist Demonstration for International Women’s Day

Beginning at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 8, graduate students from multiple academic departments interrupted approximately eight classes on the third floor of East Pyne Hall to protest for International Women’s Day, which is March 8. “It was seen as an interruption of the day-to-day comfortability that Princeton runs on,” said Verónica Carchedi, a graduate student in the Spanish and Portuguese department. The plan was to occupy East Pyne. After the protesters entered the classroom, they read their reasons for striking from their “manifesto.” They also encouraged students to walk out and join them. Only one unnamed professor knew of their plans and walked out with the students. Video by Michelle Wang Edited by Sarah W. Hirschfield
