I remember the first time I heard the phrase “imposter syndrome.” It was at one of the orientation events at the beginning of my freshman year, but as a newcomer to Princeton, everything else around me was so exciting that that new term flew over my head.

A few weeks ago, when much of the Central United States experienced record-low temperatures, Texas became the center of attention when half-a-million residents lost power. If this was not a big enough wake-up call, 30 deaths have since been recorded, including those caused by fire or carbon monoxide poisoning as residents struggled to keep warm in their homes.
Jan. 21, 2021 marked the one year anniversary of COVID-19 cases being officially reported in the United States. The world as we knew it came to a halt months ago, but conspiracy theories continue their spread through the nation. Instead of believing scientists and doctors, many Americans get their information from Facebook walls and unreliable sources, valuing rumors over facts and privileging fiction over science.
Early in November, Harry Styles made history as the first man to have a solo feature on the cover of American Vogue magazine — but he went even further, making history while wearing a dress. There have been many pioneers of crossing clothing boundaries in the past (Prince, Elton John, or David Bowie) but Styles’ historic cover brought the fight for gender-neutral dressing to the forefront of our current cultural debate.
From the moment we heard the news in the spring that studies would be online for at least three weeks, until I boarded my flight home to California, I was in utter disbelief. In a matter of one week, my water polo season, my studies, and my formative first year of college came to an end without any closure. My mental health started declining at a rapid rate as a result, and an impending sense of doom seemed to linger for months.
Mellody Hobson ’91 made headlines and history on Oct. 8: thanks to her donation, the University’s newest residential college will be the first on Princeton’s campus to be named for a Black alumna. Hobson is helping the University take the first step in re-framing Princeton’s narrative, and her actions should set the precedent for how alumni engage with the University after they graduate.
On Tuesday, Sept. 22, National Voter Registration Day, numerous campaigns sought to register voters across the country. It is clear that a lot is riding on the election in November, as the pandemic still ravages our country, protests against police brutality and systemic racism highlight racial inequality, and the fears of a worsening economic crisis loom large.
After arriving home this spring, I felt that part of my identity was lost. Training consisted of my makeshift gym in my garage instead of a pool, and I did not know the next time I would touch a water polo ball. I had a really hard time wrapping my head around this, and for the first month of quarantine, I wanted nothing to do with working out. Like all collegiate athletes, I worked my entire life to get to this level, so I was grieving over something that I had lost. However, I knew that all of my teammates and coaches were grieving in their own way. I knew athletes across the country were trying to cope, too.
For survivors of sexual misconduct, 2017 was a breakthrough year. The #MeToo movement shone light on years of assault and harassment and gave confidence to survivors. Their bravery inspired the world and brought previously “untouchable” industry magnates to justice.
On Monday, July 6, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued unnerving new guidelines regarding international student visas: if the student takes an entirely online course load, the student must either “depart the country or transfer to another university that can offer in-person instruction.” This statement is detrimental to our community of international students, who play a big part in making Princeton a unique and diverse university.
