At the 54th annual meeting of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts on Oct. 27, the Arts Council of Princeton was named the recipient of a $50,000 grant in an effort to support New Jersey’s arts organizations in weathering the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On this episode of The Orange Table, we sit down with Princeton Open Campus Coalition (POCC) President Rebekah Adams ’21 to discuss what it is like to be a Black female conservative on Princeton's campus. We also dive into the important conversation happening on campus right now around free speech, while touching on more global issues of race like police brutality and white privilege.
At 6:27 a.m. on the morning of Nov. 6, my phone rang. I rolled over in my bed, flipped it over, slapped my face a few hearty times to ensure I was up and ready, and swiped at the green telephone icon demanding my attention. I recognized the ID: It was a friend of mine.
Election night was a uniquely awful experience for me, as I assume it was for many other Americans as well. Not only was it my first time voting, but as the night drew to a close it became clear that we wouldn’t have a result for the next few days, if not longer.
It’s hard to believe I’m about to choose my last classes at Princeton. This will be the last time I will wake up at the ungodly hour of 7:20 a.m., and watch the clock tick minute-by-minute, closer to 7:30 a.m. The last time I will scroll through the course website for hours, looking through all the fascinating new courses on topics I’d never realized until then that I had to take. Scratch my head over how to narrow down 15 equally good choices to four. And have my eyes light up at the glorious return of favorite and renowned professors from their Sabbatical sabbaths.
ZZ Packer’s “Drinking Coffee Elsewhere,” a surprisingly honest anthology of eight short stories imbued with a masterly command of language, has dazzled, and continues to dazzle, audiences.
It’s a familiar concept: After an hour and a half of turmoil and intense back-and-forth, one of the protagonists — often the male one — makes a mistake that costs him his love interest. Thus, in order to prove his undying commitment to her, he concocts a grand, public, meaningful gesture to win her back. It’s Heath Ledger in “10 Things I Hate About You” singing to Julia Stiles on the bleachers. It’s Hugh Grant asking Julia Roberts about their relationship in front of the press in “Notting Hill.” It’s every cliché airport reunion or wedding interruption or onstage profession of love. The love interest, of course, is wholly charmed and the entire experience is lauded as the epitome of romance. They kiss. The extras applaud. The virtue of the protagonist is proven and the scene serves as a pipe dream for viewers everywhere. The end.
Robin Park ’23, a cellist from Princeton Junction, N.J., is planning to major in history, with certificates in East Asian studies and music performance. He currently serves as music director of both Opus and La Vie en Cello.
Released in July, Taylor Swift’s eighth studio album, “folklore,” surprised music fans worldwide. Her seventh studio album, “Lover,” had dropped less than a year before, and few anticipated that she would co-write and co-produce a 16-track (17, if you count the song “the lakes” from the deluxe version) album in only 11 months.
The first time I saw a video thanking and cheering on our health care workers — including our doctors, nurses, and EMTs — I cried.
Even if you don’t frequent TikTok, you’ve likely heard Conan Gray’s viral song “Heather,” which exploded on the online platform. The song is a tender and mournful portrayal of young, unrequited love accompanied by gentle acoustic guitar and simple vocal melodies laid over the main motif.
The Humanities Sequence, also known as HUM, has taken hundreds of Princeton first-years from the hallowed heights of Homer’s Troy to the fiery depths of Dante’s hell. The course is well-known for its difficulty and rigor: 400 pages every week, 28 books in a semester.
Before leaving home, my phone history with my parents was sparse, to say the least. Most texts between my mom and I were of the “come home now” variety, with a few “don’t stay out too late” and “where are you?” messages thrown in for good measure.
Today is my ninth day quarantining in a hotel. I’ve been here before — two months ago, to be exact. This is my second hotel quarantine this year; the first took place after I traveled internationally to stay with a friend before the semester began. But while that quarantine was planned, this one was spontaneous. As life would have it, once again I have found myself in an unfamiliar place, quarantining alone.

What will football look like in the future? Follow this apparently innocuous question asked in the headline of an article on sports news site SB Nation, and you’re probably expecting a write-up of draft prospects, league policies, statistical predictions, and maybe some musings on the evolution of sports fandom. What you get, however, is Jon Bois’s “17776,” a long-form multimedia speculative fiction narrative longlisted for two Hugo Awards.
Since being sent to live with my family in March, I have been trying to keep myself alive. I am gay and have been forced to live with my religiously conservative and homophobic family. I fear for my safety.
I love pumpkin spice season. Even if it might be “basic,” food and coffee just tastes a little bit more special with pumpkin pie seasoning and some pumpkin puree.
In a Q&A held immediately after their Oct. 15 concert, the Takács Quartet emphasized the importance of demystifying the classical music industry, particularly in the often esoteric and unreachable depths of the diverse, yet relatively untapped, string quartet repertoire. Second violinist Harumi Rhodes said that one of the Takács’ newly reignited missions in the depths of the pandemic is “trying to reconnect with the inclusive parts of music-making.” Indeed, they succeeded in this mission, breaking countless long-held rules in the process — to great effect — and potentially setting a new precedent for online music performance that may very well persist after the pandemic has subsided.
