There’s a scene from the 2014 anime “Your Lie in April” that I’ve always found awfully trite: In it, violinists are competing onstage in succession, playing Beethoven’s “Kreutzer Sonata.” The scene portrays the piece as banal, overplayed, and dull — your classic high school music competition! — until one of the show’s main characters, Kaori Miyazono, appears on stage.

This fall, the so-called “Freshman Flu,” or “Princeton Plague,” has swept through the student body like a wildfire. In the past few weeks, many students have suffered from symptoms ranging from coughs and runny noses to fevers and fatigue. Despite experiencing these COVID-19-like symptoms, our COVID-19 tests come back (thankfully) negative. Instead of holing up in our dorm rooms with Benadryl and packets of Emergen-C, we’ve dragged ourselves to classes and precepts to avoid racking up absences. As a result, germs have spread, and countless students have fallen ill.
There may be no one on campus who complains about their language classes more than I do. Don't get me wrong — I love Russian, and it's a beautiful language. I have so much respect for my peers, my instructors, and everyone involved in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literature. But it's just so hard. And it is my fault, obviously, for taking a difficult language. It’s a decision for which I have oscillating cycles of contentment and deep, test-related regret. Language learning is difficult. It takes an enormous amount of time, work, care, and dedication, and that’s a difficult dedication to give when there is always something else that needs attention. Still, there comes a point when you know it was all worth it.

PAW declares editorial independence; University experiences brief uptick, then decline in post-fall break COVID-19 cases
Every semester, in the wake of midterm’s stress, there’s always one day that feels just like Christmas: the day the Office of the Registrar releases the course offerings for the upcoming semester. For me, it feels like the academic equivalent of running down the stairs on Christmas morning to discover what magically appeared under the tree overnight. There’s an element of surprise, of possibility, of newness, and even a bit of discovery shared between the two days.
The University’s 2020 undergraduate voting rate reached a record-breaking 75.4 percent — an increase of 24.9 percent from 2016, and the highest voting rate ever recorded for the University — according to a report by the National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE).

The Undergraduate Student Government (USG) Community Dining Task Force has introduced a new off-campus dining trial program that will offer select students free meals off campus.
Ask any first year how their courses are going, and you’ll probably hear about how challenging their writing seminar, engineering prerequisites, or first departmental class is. Princeton prides itself on its academic rigor, and students often experience this rigor most intensely in their introductory courses. While rigor is an essential part of academia here, excessive rigor in introductory classes discourages academic exploration.
