Sea level rise is a much discussed symptom of climate change. While some ideas for curbing glacial melting have been proposed, few geoengineering solutions have been implemented. However, current research by University postdoctoral research associate Michael Wolovick indicates that there exists a practical solution for glacial melting.
At a research institution like the University, the decision to patent and market products invented by professors and graduate students can be a complicated one.
Morgan Jerkins ’14 read selections from her book, This Will Be My Undoing, Feb. 28 at 4 p.m. at the Princeton University Art Museum. In advance of her lecture, the ‘Prince’ spoke with Jerkins.

About a mile south of campus is a 27-acre field of solar panels that generates 5.5 percent of the University’s power. Of all the University’s clean energy efforts, this solar field has a relatively small contribution — at least on paper. Despite this technicality, the solar field is a key contributor to the University’s status as a leader in sustainable energy.
The National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center has predicted a mild winter, contrary to the storms in past years. Last March, a severe storm dubbed Stella led the University to put in extra precautions among its staff and other University community members. The year before, another storm dubbed Jonas hit campus during intersession — hard. In addition to staff preparations, the University has other measures to mitigate the impact of a huge storm.
On Saturday, 25,000 Harry Potter enthusiasts flooded Spring Street in Newton, N.J. — just about an hour from Princeton — to witness its transformation into Diagon Alley for the afternoon.
“Abortion is and always will be the opposite of empowerment,” said Kristan Hawkins during her pro-life lecture Monday night.
Rarely can students find a place to share what is weighing on their minds without worrying about the consequences of what they are disclosing. Princeton Peer Nightline, a peer-run, confidential, and anonymous call and chat service run by volunteers, offers just that. Open on Tuesday and Friday nights, the network offers an empathetic ear for students struggling with a wide variety of issues.
Chemical and biological engineering students choose their major in part because they believe that upon graduation they will have their pick of dream jobs. However, a University senior recently sent an email to the engineering department rejecting this notion.
The transformation of the former Dinky station’s location to a state-of-the-art performance center for the University is complete. The Lewis Center for the Arts, replete with 146,000 square feet of space for students in theater, dance, music, and the visual arts, will become a brand new arts hub.
