Many of us here may not make the time to journal. As hardworking students who “got into Princeton,” the idea of leaving time and effort to write down a journal entry every night might sound absurd. When there is a paper due at 8 a.m. the next morning, being told to reflect upon your deepest fears is just not going to have much appeal. But after the past few months of keeping a journal, I’ve learned that those 20 minutes of writing can teach you more about yourself than any assignment ever could.
Tucked behind the University Chapel, George Segal’s perennially misunderstood “Abraham and Isaac” depicts a bearded man brandishing a knife, preparing to slay a college-aged youth bound and on his knees. The piece’s poignancy and structural ambiguity invite double-takes and photographs. Among students and campus visitors, it has gained an unfortunate reputation.
In terms of record, it’s hard to imagine a better start to Carla Berube’s tenure as the head coach of Princeton women’s basketball (4–0). Through four games, the Tigers remain undefeated, with three of their four wins coming by double digits.
On Friday, Nov. 15, Marie Yovanovitch ’80 testified before the House Intelligence Committee as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. Yovanovitch was the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine until May 2019, and she spoke to the committee about corruption, national values, and the attack on her character extensively.
From classes, to dorms, to dining halls, there is almost always a solid crowd of people just nearby. We have all experienced the rush of freshman year as we try to find and build our friend groups. Once we get settled into our Princeton experience, however, we rarely venture beyond the comfort of our selected friend group.
In the 20 years she’s been employed at Campus Dining, Edith Murray has swiped cards, worked in the kitchen, washed dishes, forged bonds with frequent diners at the Center for Jewish Life (CJL), and baked cookies.

Princeton women’s volleyball (16–7 overall, 12–2 Ivy) split the weekend with a win against Brown (13–10, 5–7) and a tough, yet thrilling, loss to Yale (15–7, 11–2) to give them the Ivy League championship, split with Yale.

I used it to find rides home for the holidays, do statistical analyses on the top 10 states and cities of origin for my graduating class, and identify mutual connections through roommates I might know or shared residential colleges. On Sept. 6, 2019, that all changed when Tigerbook, my beloved research and social bonding tool for campus, removed all hometown, dorm, and roommate data from student profiles. For a time, photos disappeared as well. At first, I thought I could adjust, but two months later, I find myself using Tigerbook dramatically less frequently, and I believe that the removal of this data, while protecting students’ privacy to some extent, has overall resulted in a net loss to the Princeton campus.
Since Sunday, Nov. 10, University Health Services (UHS) has observed an outbreak of acute gastroenteritis on campus. Gastroenteritis, or stomach flu, causes nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea and spreads through misprepared food, contaminated water, and contact with infected people.

Matthews Theatre, in the McCarter complex, transforms into a haunted playground for humans and monsters alike. There is no telling who or what might suddenly leap from a balcony or crawl out from under the floor. Unsuspecting audience members may be thrust into the spotlight. But most unsettling is the way the lines blur between human and monster and between reality and nightmare in Lookingglass Theatre Company’s production of “Frankenstein.”
After a tough home stand last weekend, the No. 8/8 women’s hockey team (7–2–0 overall, 5–2–0 ECAC) headed to upstate New York to take on Union (2–9–1, 2–3–0 ECAC) and RPI (0–12–1, 0–6–0 ECAC). On Friday, the Tigers started slow but responded quickly and ended up dominating the Dutchwomen winning 7–2. Princeton continued its strong road presence defeating the Engineers 4–1.
In one of the most anticipated matchups in Jeopardy! history, Emma Boettcher ’14 faced off against the legendary James Holzhauer in last week’s Tournament of Champions two-day finals.

I write this column barely an hour before I am scheduled to meet with my African American studies preceptor about revising my midterm paper for a new grade. I wrote the paper amidst the chaos of midterms week, in between studying for two exams and drafting another paper. Even if I had had a reasonable amount of time to complete the assignment, the reality is, it would not reflect my best work. But in a typical Princeton course, it would be my final version of the essay.
We approach 2020 and women across the world still have to beg for access to basic menstrual health and hygiene products. As men continue to define what constitutes the human body and its needs, the fact that menstruation is a basic human function that half the world’s population experiences every month is completely drowned out during conversations about the body.
