I recently returned from my first international research trip since the pandemic sent us all into isolation and into little square Zoom boxes nearly 20 months ago. This was a trip I had been hoping to take for a long time, a much-anticipated return to the libraries in England that house the manuscripts which are the focus of my book-in-progress. When I received University approval to take the trip in early September, I set about booking flights and hotel rooms like I always do before travel, but this time I also had to book appointments for several COVID-19 tests.
In a recent study, chemical and biological engineering professor Sujit Datta and fifth-year graduate student Christopher Browne discovered why certain fluids increase in flow resistance under pressure when flowing through porous media — a question that has puzzled researchers for more than half a century.
The Princeton Tigers (7–1, 4–1 Ivy) took their first hit of the season last Friday, losing against Dartmouth 31–7. With two games remaining on the schedule and an Ivy League title in the balance, they take on Yale (5–3, 4–1 Ivy) at home this Saturday.

The Princeton Town Council met on Monday, Nov. 8 for its regular meeting. The agenda included discussing plans for the Graduate Hotel on Nassau Street, more debate on approving a liquor license for a new Claridge Wine & Liquor location on Nassau Street, and initial plans for a dog park in Princeton.
A group of researchers, including Julia Berndtsson ’23, reported finding evidence of the existence of a planet transiting a star in an external galaxy, marking the first such potential ‘exoplanet’ ever detected outside the Milky Way.
In Monday’s Council of the Princeton University Community (CPUC) meeting, administrators discussed the University’s plans on fossil fuel dissociation, COVID-19 updates, and the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Report.
The University announced on Nov. 5 that the University-led COVID-19 vaccination clinics will begin administering the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine to children between ages five and 11, following authorization from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the State of New Jersey. The University clinic, held in Jadwin Gymnasium, officially began administering pediatric vaccinations on Monday, Nov. 8.
In this episode of The Highlights, we’re joined by Mira Nencheva, a graduate student in the Department of Psychology. We discuss her path to graduate work in psychology, the day-to-day of working with toddlers at the Princeton Baby Lab, and how the vocal pitch of a caregiver can affect learning early in life.
This week, changing leaves covered Princeton’s trees in orange and yellow. Students enjoyed pizza at Fall Fest, and women’s ice hockey played Union College.
When I went on an Orange Key Tour as a high school student, my tour guide enthusiastically declared that Princeton is only about an hour by train from Philadelphia and New York City. It was as though my tour guide was trying to compensate for Princeton’s location, for its suburban setting. After becoming a Princeton student, I have found that Princeton’s location is often viewed in a negative or ambiguous light by students themselves.
On a windy Thursday in late October, I stood outside East Pyne Hall with the rest of my Humanities Sequence precept, gazing up at four statues built into the west side tower. The statues honor four important members of the Princeton community: two former University presidents, John Witherspoon and James McCosh, and two alumni, James Madison Class of 1771 and Oliver Ellsworth Class of 1766. We were discussing the particular function of art in the context of a building and a campus, and all I could think about was what we did not discuss but was central to the readings we did to prepare for the precept: the relationship between the men and slavery.
USG establishes peer representatives; Sir Paul McCartney publishes a new book

This past Tuesday, Nov. 2, was Election Day. To my great shame, I did not participate in my state’s local elections. When I asked my friends at Princeton if they had cast their ballots, not a single one could answer affirmatively. This is not a reflection of any concerted decision to withhold our votes -- the vast majority of my friends on campus are, to some degree, politically engaged. Rather, this was a consequence of each of us having a full schedule of Princeton classes on Tuesday.
During this time of year — perhaps with the beginning weeks of flu season occurring or with the pace of the semester escalating — many students are getting sick. Several students are well aware of this: being surrounded by the frequent coughing in lecture halls, or hearing banter about the “Princeton Plague” and stories of being turned away by McCosh Health Center.

Sir Paul McCartney’s new book, “The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present,” is “as close to an autobiography as we may ever come,” according to the book’s editor, Professor Paul B. Muldoon, University Professor in the Humanities and a professor of creative writing in the Lewis Center for the Arts.
