As I walked a first-year friend up the numerous flights of stairs to her dorm room at the top of 1937, she made an offhand comment about a relatively mild inconvenience that stuck with me. The dorm room assignment gods had not looked kindly upon her floor, and somehow my friend had been stuck on a hall where there were “seven-plus girls using one bathroom that only had one stall, one shower, and two sinks.” The designated “men’s” bathroom on the hall, on the other hand, was shared by just two boys.
It was getting pretty annoying: a friend in a foreign country only ever texted me when she needed help with her English homework. She was important to me, so at first, I was happy to oblige. After the fifth or sixth time, I began getting annoyed. Then, when I visited the country, I invited her to grab dinner with me. She accepted — but later reneged and never followed up. It hurt, but it finally hit me: I was “useful” to her. I served a very specific purpose in her life, and that was to help her with English homework.

This Saturday, Princeton football (1–0 overall, 0–0 Ivy League) will travel to Lewisburg, Pa., to take on Bucknell (0–3) where the Bison will be seeking their first win. The Tigers are looking to continue their early season superiority and continue dominating their non-conference schedule, in which their record is 12–1 since 2015. Princeton’s victory last week extended its winning streak, which dates back to last season, to 11 straight, the longest in program history since 17 between 1964 and 1965.

A couple of days ago, I was taking the elevator up to the second floor of Witherspoon (commonly referred to as ‘Spoon by its residents). The act may seem mundane enough — I do it every day, multiple times a day, because I live on the second floor of ‘Spoon.

In 2017, I published an article in The Daily Princetonian asking where the female faculty at Princeton were — the answer was that they are obscured by the sea of white-male faculty. While many of those male professors are excellent educators and mentors, the lack of female professors on campus should be disturbing, especially in light of the fact that about half of University students are female.
