“Now more than ever, we must all share the responsibility for keeping our community safe.” This is the beginning of the Princeton University Social Contract for Spring of 2021, which all undergraduate students residing on or near campus had to sign prior to the start of the semester. Aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19 on campus and in the Princeton community, it seems to be successful: as of the time of writing, spread on campus has been kept in single-digit figures every week, and we have not had to go into any larger scale quarantines since the initial arrival protocol for residential students.
On Tuesday, March 16, a 21-year-old white man shot and killed eight people, including six Asian American women, at three massage parlors in the Atlanta, Ga. area. As has been widely reported, this was a violent case of what has been a rising trend in racism and discrimination against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders since the beginning of the pandemic. Though the gunman has been charged with eight counts of murder, officials have yet to charge him with a hate crime upon the perpetrator’s dubious insistence that his sex addiction, not racial bigotry, was the motivation behind his attack.
Mark Watson has stepped down as interim Dean of Princeton’s School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA). Nolan McCarty — a SPIA and politics professor and former chair of the Department of Politics — will serve as the new interim dean.
It is 1956, just the sixth year that women were admitted to Harvard Law School. “Why are you occupying a place at Harvard that could have gone to a man?” asks Dean Erwin Griswold (Sam Waterston) at a welcome dinner for the nine women admitted to the law school’s incoming class of over 550 students. Among them is a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Felicity Jones). She replies that she is studying law to “become a more patient and understanding wife,” making it evident that women were not welcome in the field of law at the time.
Following the identification of a COVID-19 “cluster” on campus, select students are being required to submit a third weekly test.
A team led by two University faculty members has developed a novel encapsulation technology aiming to help administer more effective and robust vaccines.
If it wasn’t for the Princeton 1988-89 men’s basketball team, “March Madness” as it is known and loved today may never have come to be.
Latest: How financial resources affects higher education during the pandemic; reimagining the History Month
In honor of Black History Month, my elementary school teachers barraged me and the other children with random facts about the accomplishments of Black people. For instance: Madame C.J. Walker was the first self-made female millionaire. Garrett Morgan invented the stoplight. Maggie L. Walker (also the namesake of my high school) was the first African American woman to charter a bank. By the first day of March, the parade of symbols ended, and the curriculum returned to its usual Eurocentric self.
It has been almost a year since the arches of Princeton University swelled with the sounds of a cappella and audience members watched from the steps as groups showed off their repertoire. The arches are quiet at night now; a passerby may hear only the sound of their own voice.
A little bit of normal has returned to Princeton with students back on campus, and I, for one, am thrilled. I once again feel that thrum of energy that comes directly from students, that pulse of ambition and intelligence that runs from classroom to dormroom and everywhere in between. The procedures outlined for arrival on campus (though difficult, I’m sure) worked. Regular testing has helped us all feel safe. Our case numbers have stayed low. So what I really mean when I say I’m thankful that students are back is that I’m grateful that you’re back and that you’re safe. Most students at America’s universities weren’t given the opportunity to have it both ways. We owe it to those students to demand better from America’s higher education sector.
Midterms are over, and the snow is melting, but as you break out the spring clothes, you’re probably realizing that you have weeks of tough course loads ahead of you before summer hits. As you gear up for the rest of the semester, consider trying out some fresh study music to get you through those late-night essays and endless problem sets. Break out of the lo-fi beats rut with these equally-atmospheric Spotify playlists and albums, tested and rated by yours truly over the first half of the semester.
