To the Class of 2020,
On Wednesday, March 4, acclaimed healthcare reporter Sarah Kliff discussed the legacy of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), 10 years after it passed, on a panel hosted by the Woodrow Wilson School for Public and International Affairs.
On Tuesday, March 3, the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) and mental health advocacy club Letters to Strangers (L2S) released their 30-page Mental Health Guidebook, a compilation of University mental health resources, student testimonials, and information about important policies like leaves of absences and insurance plans. It also provides information on how to seek help off-campus.
Two weeks ago, I got a frantic text from my beloved friend — her belly dancing group was in need of a photographer who could take some impromptu shots of their dress rehearsal the evening before opening night.
A recent op-ed by guest contributors in The Daily Princetonian objecting to the selection of Marshawn Lynch as this year’s Class Day speaker has garnered widespread attention across campus and in the national media. Aside from being misconstrued as being representative of the campus community, the dismissive attitude towards Lynch within the article falls in line with a long history of disrespect towards black athletes.
For Rutgers and No. 3 Princeton men’s lacrosse, it’s been a close two years. On March 10, 2018, the Tigers claimed a 15–14 overtime victory on Sherrerd Field. On March 9, 2019, they fell 9–8 in Piscataway, N.J. This weekend, they (4–0) will face the Scarlet Knights (3–2) on Sherrerd Field again.
Prominent experimental particle physicist and long-time University faculty member Pierre Adrien Piroué died on Feb. 12 at the age of 88.
In the spring of 2019, randomization errors in the University room draw process sparked outrage across campus. A few students conducted ad hoc data analysis, revealing the scale of the flaw. Eventually, the University awarded 220 seniors $1,000 in compensation.
Princeton men’s swimming and diving finished in second place at the four-day Ivy League Championships in Providence, R.I.
On Tuesday, University President Christopher L. Eisgruber ’83 wrote to the University community about the global spread of COVID-19, commonly referred to as coronavirus.
Imagine this: it’s the beginning of March, spring semester is halfway over, and you don’t have an internship. You might as well drop out of school now, since no future employer will ever take you seriously with the lack of experience on your resume.
The Catholic Church needs change, and I say this as a devout Catholic. Ever since the 2013 election of Pope Francis — a pontiff many saw as a figure of change — traditionalism and conservatism have been on the rise, especially in America. Many eyes have turned towards the pages of the past. The number of parishes that now regularly celebrate the ancient Tridentine rite of the Mass in Latin is also on the rise. Many Catholics have taken a keen interest in scholastic, often outdated, Thomistic theology. And many believe the Church is under siege and in need of protectors that can save it from its corrupt ways.
As coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) swept across northern Italy last week, Julius Foo ’21, a Woodrow Wilson School concentrator studying abroad at Bocconi University in Milan, found himself in the crosshairs of an epidemic. His primary concern was not the spread of coronavirus itself, but rather being stranded in Italy. Ticket prices were skyrocketing. Flights began to sell out.
In 1946, University chemistry professor Edward C. Taylor, then a graduate student at Cornell University, came across an interesting compound whose structure resembled that of pigments found in butterfly wings. The compound, later discovered to be folic acid, was a vitamin essential to the growth of cells — including cancer cells. Taylor thought that targeting folic acid might be an effective way to arrest the growth of tumors. He synthesized a potential therapeutic but didn’t have the resources he needed to rigorously test the product.
The University is always changing.
On Monday, March 2, around 40 students, University faculty, and Princeton community members gathered on Frist Campus Center’s North Lawn to protest against continued violence in New Delhi, India.
Two weeks ago, I wrote a column justifying my obstinate refusal to switch from paper notes to digital notes; in a similar vein, I wish to write this column to justify yet another obsolete school-related habit of mine: standard pencils. More and more often, I see my fellow students resorting to mechanical pencils. And less and less frequently can I find public-use pencil sharpeners on campus. My family members — the same ones who unsuccessfully tried to persuade me of the merits of electronic note-taking — have all given up standard pencils in favor of pens, mechanical pencils, or nothing at all. So, naturally, I also entertained some reasons why I might consider switching to mechanical pencils.
Princeton men’s track and field had a weekend to remember in Ithaca, N.Y. after securing a team victory at the Ivy League Indoor Track and Field Championships with 173 points, well ahead of second-place Harvard (116 points) and third-place Penn (91 points). This is the program’s 23rd Ivy League victory in school history and its ninth since 2010. On the women’s side, the Tigers improved upon last year’s fifth-place team finish to place fourth overall at this year’s championships with 68 points, behind Cornell (82.5 points), Harvard (126 points), and Penn (133 points).
Three Tigers rushed down the ice, with one defender looking to stymie the rush. Princeton executed a pass, fired a shot on net, and forced the rebound in the back of the net.
