Every Wednesday this semester, roughly 20 students walked into McCosh 50 for one of Princeton’s 15 undergraduate classes taught in person. But this class was unique for another reason; although the students are together, no professor awaits them inside.
This week, members of the Princeton community protested the University’s handling of the remains of the 1985 MOVE police bombing victims. More flowers bloomed across campus as students finished classes. Renovations at the Princeton Art Museum have brought constant construction to the center of campus.
The Princeton Pianists Ensemble (PPE) – everyone’s heard about it. And how could they not? The group is self-described as “one of the only performing groups on the planet where you’ll ever see five pianos on a stage,“ and they certainly live this up, with their concerts for not quite dozens of hands. That is, they live it up in a normal year. But what happens during a pandemic? In the following photos, we’ll catch up (visually) with some of PPE's members, and we'll explore how the group is managing these unprecedented times.

With the window for redrawing voting districts upon us, the topic of gerrymandering should be on everyone’s radar. This article is the third and final edition in a series that explores the need for structural reform in the electoral system, the power of data to achieve these ends, and the ongoing efforts at Princeton in the Electoral Innovation Lab. You can find the first two articles of the series here.
It is a pretty safe rule of thumb to assume that no one wants to get sick. You don’t get diagnosed with, say, the flu, and then get treated under the pretext that your illness is your fault. That would be blasphemous medical practice, and everyone knows it. So, why don’t we treat mental illness the same here at Princeton?
I love spicy food. The fresh spice of jalapeños in homemade pico de gallo, the buzzing heat of cayenne in Hungarian goulash, and the lingering sting of Jamaican jerk seasoning are the flavors of my childhood, and since my youth, my tolerance and appreciation for spice have been steadily growing.
When I read Dean of the College Jill Dolan’s announcement about the postponement of Dean’s Date until May 10, I was pleased to see the administration taking a step to support students’ mental health. The change will give many of us needed breathing room during a semester when burnout, loneliness, and grief have been all too common, and I thank the administrators who listened to students and implemented it. However, I am concerned that a delayed Dean’s Date will not adequately alleviate the stress of students with final exams. Professors must scale back their exams.
Last week, it was announced that the Princeton student-led platform Adora had been acquired by Full Measure Education, a higher-education focused technology company. Adora is a campus-visit platform that offers personalized tours to prospective students. After it was first proposed in 2019 by three Princeton students, Ron Miasnik ’22, Raya Ward ’22, and Joseph Rubin ’22, Adora became the first student run company to become a Princeton vendor. Daybreak sat down with Ron to talk about the process and learn his advice.
Following the indictment of former tax collector Joel Greenberg, Florida representative Matt Gaetz is under fire for alleged sexual misconduct. An inquiry is underway, investigating the possibility of Gaetz having had sex with a 17-year-old girl. I find Gaetz’s accusations so pertinent because of my closeness in age to the woman Gaetz may have had sex with — myself and my first-year female peers are merely a year older than her — and because of the frequency with which college-aged women — possibly even Princeton women — use sugar dating apps like Seeking Arrangement. It is thus out of disgust for Gaetz and concern for my colleagues who are, or are considering becoming, sugar babies, that I feel it is so important to warn Princetonians not only about Gaetz’s sexual deviancy, but also its inextricable connection to sugar dating, which can often fuel problematic behavior.

It’s the end of a long semester. I’ve now spent just about one full academic year as a Princeton student, the last three months of it here on campus, in the best old place of all, just south of Nassau Street.
A former Princeton soccer player has been hired to manage one of the biggest football (soccer) clubs in Germany.
Dean’s Date will be postponed from May 5 until May 10, according to a memo from Dean of the College Jill Dolan sent to all undergraduate students Friday morning.

The Princeton Dinky, the shortest scheduled commuter rail line in the nation, might have its days numbered. NJ Transit recently commenced a year-long study of the Princeton transit system, with an emphasis on the Princeton Branch transit corridor that unites Princeton with Princeton Junction.
