To U. President Christopher Eisgruber and Davis International Center Director Jacqueline Leighton:
Guest artists Jessica Paz and Montana Levi Blanco received honors at the 64th Annual Drama Desk Awards on June 2. Guest artists offer their professional talents to productions with the Lewis Center for the Arts.
I read with great interest President Eisgruber’s recent statement on sexual misconduct concerns for the University. The statement's vague language and unsupported claims remind me of writer Rebecca Solnit's observation, "It is the truest, highest purpose of language to make things clear and help us see; when words are used to do the opposite you know you’re in trouble and maybe that there’s a cover-up."

Moments into the second half, junior Tess D’Orsi scored her 64th goal of the season to even the score of the NCAA quarterfinal matchup between Princeton and Boston College at seven. From there, the Eagles would overwhelm the Tigers, dominating both off faceoffs and set plays to win 17–12 and advance to the NCAA women’s lacrosse final four in Baltimore. For the Tigers, an impressive season ends on a sour note, as a game that once looked winnable for the orange and black soon fell out of reach.

Music groups are widely celebrated and loved on campus. From the department ensembles to niche performance groups, rock to a capella, it seems like we have it all. The University frequently uses these groups as a selling point, hosting “This Side of Princeton” performing arts showcases at each Princeton Preview event.

One arch sing, and before you know it, you’ve committed.

On the wrestling mat, Joe Dubuque is still only for a second. He lunges, he bounces, he spins. He folds himself in two. He drops to his hands and knees, springs back up. He flinches at each move Princeton’s opponent makes. But Dubuque isn’t Princeton’s wrestler; he puts on his nonstop, kinetic show from the coaches’ corner.
