Spring: the season of new beginnings. When warmth comes back from hibernation, sunbeams emerge from dark clouds, and birds sing from the twigs of blossoming trees... at least that’s what it used to be like. But we now seem to face the ugly truth: spring is not the promise of a new beginning anymore — no, spring is the promise of apocalypse.
Four strangers. Three countries. Two adventurous hitchhikers. All connected by one street: Jadranska Magistrala, better known as the Adriatic Highway. Starting in Montenegro, this single road goes through Montenegro, Croatia and Slovenia, all the way up to Italy.
At Princeton, entrances and exits are perhaps the most frequently encountered yet overlooked elements in a student’s daily life on campus.
Every Sunday morning, in the quiet back room of the Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding, Wonchull Park teaches a community tai chi class. I arrived a couple minutes early, but about 15 older members were already there, conversing in the back of the room. Park allowed me to observe from the sideline and quietly take notes. Beginning with several minutes of seated meditation, the class focuses on breathing slowly and rubbing muscles gently to warm up. Eventually, Park stands up and starts leading the class through circular motions of his hands in coordination with his body. He then begins to speak.
On March 3 and 4, “Seeking Refuge: Faith-Based Approaches to Forced Migration,” the second conference in the Poverty and Peacemaking series was hosted by the Office of Religious Life and the Community of Sant’Egidio.

Raya Buensuceso ’17 traveled almost every weekend during her semester in Milan last year. “I went to Israel, Turkey, and Morocco. Then, of course, I went around Italy, and I went around Europe,” said Buensuceso, “I bought tickets to go to Brussels for $25 round trip. That’s cheaper than going to New York!”
The Pace Center for Civic Engagement is the community service organization that encourages students to connect with the communities around them, by combining the attitudes for service and learning.
You’ve spent all morning on the train. Watching as the landscape changes right outside your window, you wonder how much longer it will take to arrive. Finally, the train crosses a narrow bridge and arrives at a small train depot. Eager to stretch your legs and to take in the great summer weather, you walk briskly towards the exit.
After “the current administration’s executive order on immigration and travel,” Alexandria Herr ’17 began to think of “things I could do to help friends that were affected”. She finally decided “a benefit concert seemed like a good idea.”
What would happen if 100 of the most creative, design-driven college students in the country worked together alongside top brand creators, product designers, and entrepreneurs? That’s what Mihika Kapoor ’18 had in mind when she started planning the first-ever Designation Conference. In its first year, the Conference has already gotten top executives from IBM, Fox, Google Ventures, and more to pledge their participation.
Art is participatory. What artists create is an experience for people to look at artwork and imagine themselves to be part of its story. The best works of art are the most convincing in catalyzing their audience’s imagination. Moreover, the process of art-making is also more arduous than we often imagine. This week, the 'Prince' spoke with two student artists on campus who designed their own film projects as an extracurricular passion, in hopes of unveiling the artistic ideals that motivated them and the artistic processes they underwent.
“Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk, I’m a woman’s man: no time to talk.” With these classic words from the Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive,” “Saturday Night Fever,” a musical based on the 1977 film of the same name, introduces Tony Manero to the audience.
Food is more than just basic sustenance; in many countries it is the cornerstones of culture — the occasion to eat is a celebration in itself. This can be seen around the world where pubs, restaurants, Kneipen, and other food establishments can flourish not only based on their cook’s ability, but also on the atmosphere they can foster among their patrons.
It's that time of year again, when seniors withdraw into the depths of libraries and their dorm rooms to complete perhaps the most exhaustive and nuanced endeavor that they will undertake during their Princeton careers: the senior thesis. For months, these students have been conducting research, building, performing, interviewing, and writing these capstone projects that are often mysteries to underclassmen. To get an idea of what these students have been spending hours and hours on, the Street interviewed three seniors, Dylan Blau Edelstein ’17, former Street editor Harrison Blackman ’17, and Daniel Teehan ’17. All of the seniors are AB students; Edelstein is concentrating in Spanish & Portuguese, Blackman in History, and Teehan in Comparative Literature.
Sometimes you’ll see me standing outside, with my head tipped back towards the sky, imploring the clouds to dip down close enough to brush against my face, the same way your words touched my heart. I still tell myself that if I believe hard enough, snowflakes will crystallize on my tongue like candies to remind me of the day we last saw each other.
The Martin A. Dale ’53 Summer Award is a University-sponsored funding opportunity for undergraduates who want to design their own summer project. Twelve sophomores from different residential colleges are given $5000 to create projects that develop “personal growth, foster independence, creativity, and leadership skills, and broaden or deepen some area of special interest.” We interviewed three students who were recipients of the award: Rabia Khan ’18, Marlyn Bruno '17, and Michael Manning '17.
“By virtue of the fact that 2D is the only undergraduate co-op on campus, it has been labeled as insular, even strange. But the house’s reputation is the least of its problems,” reads an article published on Feb. 20, 1983, in The Daily Princetonian.
For the members of the Jewish community, the Center for Jewish Life is much more than a place to eat. Rather, it represents a solid community of people who share similar beliefs and religious experiences.
The University has a long history of creating structures for communities that bring together people based on specific interests, such as dance, a cappella, or visual arts. There are student artists from all different fields who push the limits of creative imagination and create work worthy of being displayed on world-renowned platforms. But what would happen if these different groups crossed paths? What kind of community, conversations, and creations could emerge from such an environment?
