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.

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.
When the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) Senate met on Sunday, Nov. 7, they voted to amend the Honor Code Constitution in addition to discussing grading policy and the atmosphere around grading on campus.
Princeton women’s soccer wrapped up their season Saturday with a 1–0 win over Penn. Junior midfielder Marissa Hart scored the lone goal of the match in the 65th minute and Princeton held the fort defensively to complete its 10th shutout of the season.

Daisys and Gatsbys on a discotheque dance floor, 20th-century pop hits, and elaborate 1920s-style entrees and desserts: Princeton’s “Roaring Twenties'' themed Orange and Black Ball (OBB) on Nov. 4 was filled with all the glitz and glam that many missed coming out of multiple remote semesters.
A week after The New York Times first reported that the University of Florida (UF) had barred faculty members from testifying in a case against the state government, the school announced a reversal. UF said on Friday that it will permit professors to assist in a lawsuit that aims to overturn a new Florida law that restricts voting rights.
