Last weekend, the women’s golf team traveled to Florida for the Harvard Invitational and carded 880, its best three-round event score in program history.

For the Princeton men’s tennis team (17–6 overall, 1–0 Ivy League), it’s good to be home: following a three-match West Coast trip, the Tigers returned to Princeton and began Ivy League play on a warm Saturday afternoon with a close win against the University of Pennsylvania (16–6, 0–1 Ivy).
Laura Wooten, a University staff member and lifelong poll worker, died on March 24 at the age of 98.
The state of New York recently announced that it would investigate and launch a lawsuit against the Sackler family, whose members control Purdue Pharma, the company that produces OxyContin, for manipulating the public’s perception of prescription painkillers and contributing to the hundreds of thousands of deaths that have resulted from opioid addiction. Although the Sackler family, as well as pharmaceutical companies, have played a crucial role in the opioid epidemic, this investigation bypasses another party that is equally to blame: the physicians who have overprescribed addictive painkillers.
The Princeton Police Department (PPD) has identified a suspect who scammed around $800 after entering three Nassau Street businesses and falsely claiming to be a “fire extinguisher inspector.” PPD had shared surveillance photos of the suspect through a Facebook post.
The recent college admissions scandal, which continues to captivate the nation’s attention, has laid bare the issues that have festered at the heart of college admissions for many years. The government’s indictment of parents who illegally manipulated their children’s applications makes clear how wealthy parents obsess on the prestige of certain colleges. It appears that implicated parents wanted their kids to attend schools such as Yale, Stanford, and the University of Southern California, not because they believed those schools offered the best educational opportunities, but because they communicated a certain level of achievement to other families.
The Undergraduate Student Government discussed the Honor Committee and the Committee on Discipline applicant selection process and the possible replacement of Blackboard during its weekly meeting on Sunday, March 31.
Spring sports are in full swing. Here are recaps of some of this weekend’s action.
Every semester, members of the Lettuce Club at the University of Minnesota Duluth gather for a lettuce head eating competition. The rules are simple: any salad dressing is allowed, students pay two dollars to compete (one dollar if you bring your own lettuce head), and the person who finishes their lettuce first becomes “The Head of Lettuce.” The people who come in second and third place are awarded the titles of “The Half Wedge” and “The House Salad,” respectively.
President Donald Trump recently announced his nomination of Michael Kratsios ’08 to serve as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of the United States, filling a seat that has been vacant since the Obama administration.
On the morning of Friday, Mar. 29, the Philippine government arrested Filipina journalist and Time Person of the Year Maria Ressa ’86 as she disembarked from her flight from San Francisco over an alleged violation of the Securities Regulation Code and an anti-dummy law.
As SHARE Peers, we wish to distinguish the role of SHARE (Sexual Harassment/Assault Advising, Resources and Education), which serves our campus as a safe, supportive, and confidential space for survivors of interpersonal violence, from the Title IX office, which provides a means of seeking disciplinary action for sexual misconduct. Recently, we discovered that several campus bathroom signs delineating sources of support on campus relating to interpersonal violence had been vandalized. We find it distressing both that a survivor in our community feels unprotected and that this message could potentially deter other survivors from coming to SHARE.
Lacrosse, as they say, is a game of runs. Princeton men’s lacrosse (3–6, 0–3 Ivy) has recently found itself too often on the wrong end of those runs. A 7–1 run in a loss to Johns Hopkins. A 12–1 run in a loss at Penn. A 6–1 run in a loss to Yale. Most recently, Princeton suffered a 6–1 Brown run in the second half of its 14–10 loss to the Bears (4–5, 2–0) this Saturday at Sherrerd Field.
Despite the persistent advocacy of Students for Prison Education and Reform, the University has refused to “Ban the Box” — that is, eliminate a section on its application asking for prospective students’ criminal history. As SPEAR explained in The Daily Princetonian, students with criminal records are highly likely to experience rejection from institutions of higher education — and yet, paradoxically, access to higher education is critical to lessening recidivism.
“This is very much an election that’s a referendum on Netanyahu,” said Professor Daniel C. Kurtzer, former U.S. ambassador to Israel and Egypt, less than two weeks before the April 9 election of the 21st Israeli Knesset.
Men’s lacrosse (3–5, 0–2 Ivy) will take on Brown University (3–5, 1–0) this Saturday at Sherrerd Field. Fresh off of a win against the University of Denver (5–3), the team looks to turn around its performance in the Ivy League after starting 0–2 in conference play.
It’s always difficult going into a game where the opponent is undefeated and highly ranked in the nation, which is what No. 16 Princeton women’s lacrosse team (5–3) discovered Wednesday night against No. 2 Maryland (11–0). Maryland’s Jen Giles and Kali Hartshorn scored four goals each, and Princeton fell 15–7 to the Terrapins in College Park, Md.
A couple weeks ago, Operation Varsity Blues led to the indictment of 50 people, including parents, college coaches, and standardized test administrators, in a wide-ranging college admissions cheating and bribery scheme. The indicted included two famous actresses, the partner of a private equity firm, a partner at a top law firm, and many more.
Henry Horn, Professor Emeritus of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and founding director of the Program in Environmental Studies, died in Princeton on March 14 at the age of 77.
