I recently came across a column written by Professor Victor Fleischer from the University of San Diego arguing that universities ought to be required to spend at least eight percent of their endowments each year. Fleischer believes that such a step would result in universities spending more on financial aid and academic programs and less on fund managers. These goals, in his view, are desirable.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve created a program that has allowed students to nominate and then elect speakers to become candidates for the University to host on our behalf.
The U.S. Senate passed a resolution on Oct. 31 honoring the late Toni Morrison — renowned author, Nobel laureate, and the Robert F. Goheen Professor in the Humanities, Emerita, at the University.
It was 38 degrees in Yankee Stadium. 8:55 remained in the third quarter. Princeton football trailed Dartmouth 20–7. The sky was darkening by the minute. The Tigers were on their way to netting a meager 64 rushing yards to the Big Green’s 252. And it was getting dangerously close to 37 degrees in Yankee Stadium.
On Oct. 8, the ACT, which designs an aptitude test often submitted in college applications, announced changes to the standardized test to be implemented beginning September 2020. The most significant of these changes is the introduction of section retesting, which, according to the ACT, will allow students who have taken the test previously to “retake individual sections of the ACT test instead of the entire exam.”
On Thursday afternoon, violinist Stefan Jackiw and pianist Jeremy Denk walked silently onto the stage of Richardson Auditorium, weaving between folding chairs and close-eyed patrons already deep in a meditative state. Eight hours later, the pair would enter the same stage to thunderous applause, Jackiw’s gray sweater and tousled hair traded for concert black, audience shifted to the balcony and ground.

No. 8 Princeton field hockey (13–4, 7–0 Ivy) completed an undefeated Ivy League season on Saturday, besting the Pennsylvania Quakers (7–10, 4–3) 3–1.
Over the course of our Princeton careers, people come and go: friends, lovers, partners, and, for some, even family members. We make regular choices about whom to keep in our lives and whom to distance ourselves from — some people we keep because they bring us joy; others we keep because they fill a specific need, be it psychological, academic, or physical. Relationships — whatever they may be — are all based on choices.
A riddle for the reader: pizza boxes can be put in me but only if there is no residual grease. I also gobble up your plastic bottles, but only if you’ve taken the time to clean and rinse them and, in Princeton specifically, remove their caps. I love anything aluminum, though, and when you’re done reading this in print, you can toss your paper in me, too (but if there’s food stuck to me from reading me in a dining hall, toss me in the trash instead). What am I, and why am I so picky?
This past weekend, the No. 7/7 women’s hockey team (5–2 overall, 3–2 ECAC) hosted two familiar Ivy League foes at Baker Rink. On Friday, Harvard (5–0, 5–0) defeated the Tigers 6–2, but Princeton responded and ended the weekend on a high note, beating Dartmouth (1–4–1, 1–3–1) 2–1. While not the start it was hoping for to try to defend its Ivy League title, the Tigers are still very much alive in the race, as all of the teams will play each other a second time still.

Her departure leaves the director positions of both the Women*s Center and LGBT Center vacant, as former LGBT Center Director Judy Jarvis has become Director of Wintersession and Campus Engagement.
I never knew how fortunate I was to grow up in Detroit. With a population that’s 80 percent African-American, its businesses cater to the dominant demographic. Practically every major street is lined with beauty supply shops, stocked in abundance with hair extensions, conditioners, hair masks, gels, bonnets, and silk scarves — all for the purpose of protecting and beautifying Afro-textured hair.
