Sometimes the only reason I can finish an assignment is by knowing I get to read a book when I’m done. The realization that I can spend time with friends after completing an essay or problem set is motivation enough to finish the job. After a long day (or perhaps just several long hours) of doing homework or paid work, it’s critically important for me to relax — be it by watching a movie or going for a walk — so much so that I’ve proactively built this time into my schedule.
We are in the middle of winter, and it is no secret that the University is hesitant to cancel class during dangerous weather.
Just a week ago, New Jersey’s very own Cory Booker announced his bid for the presidency with an energetic video titled “We Will Rise.” And he is not the only one — as 2020 approaches, many other Democratic candidates are also gunning for an opportunity to challenge Trump in the next presidential election.
In light of the recent release of information in relation to The Ivy Club’s spring admissions process in 2017, The Ivy Club would like to offer the following statement.
My day begins with a scan of Facebook and national news (and, of course, a paper copy of ‘The Prince’). Checking the news reassures me that I am an informed student and citizen — but should it? We’ve all been on Facebook and seen the angry political rants permeated with one-sided, inflammatory propaganda. And these posts are more than just frustrating: they subconsciously define the way we see other people.

The news that Karen Pence, wife of Vice President Mike Pence, will return to work at a Virginia school that requires its employees to denounce homosexuality and transgenderism has generated much controversy.
For the Interclub Council (ICC), Street Week is a culmination of more than a year’s worth of planning, consensus-building, and focusing on improving the undergraduate experience. It concludes an entire semester of intense club recruitment, ICC outreach, and months of working with club graduate boards, comprising passionate University alumni, to alter the admissions timeline. This has resulted in the biggest change to club admissions since the online portal went live in 2013. Our hope is that the result is a time of excitement for prospective and current members alike.
Sophomores make two important decisions during their spring semester. They choose their eating club and their concentration. Statistics derived from Tigerbook, the University meal exchange website, and the Office of the Registrar indicate that socioeconomic status may affect both decisions.
If Princeton’s campus were a book, what stories would a visitor read in its stones?
When sophomores enter eating clubs’ doors this week, they may get the gut feeling that nothing they do or say matters in Bicker. Rumors about affiliations’ role on the Street have swirled for years and haunt Real Talk Princeton posts. But there’s never been definitive evidence to prove any of this gossip.
If past years’ statistics are any indication, around 70 percent of the Class of 2021 is now bickering for acceptance into the Street’s six selective eating clubs (Cannon Dial Elm Club, Cap & Gown Club, Cottage Club, Ivy Club, Tiger Inn, and Tower Club). Later this week, sophomores will nervously await the result of their Bicker and, consequently, their social fate for the next two-and-a-half years.
Each night, likely while you’re sleeping, we send our page files to a printer in Philadelphia. A few minutes later I get a call — usually from Mike or Leo — to tell me the pages are good to go.
