Turning out to vote in an election is an important part of our civic duty (and, evidently, is an area for improvement among University students). Just as important, however, is educating yourself on what is at stake in the upcoming election. This fall, we are voting for more than just the next president; we’re voting for the future of our planet. Under a second Trump term, nobody wins except the oil operators, and even they won’t be spared from the growing effects of climate change.
Growing up in Kansas City, I have had my fair share of encounters with white liberalism. Whether it’s “… but I voted for Obama!” after a questionable remark, or that black box on Instagram that has become symbolic of allyship with Black folk, this superficial opposition to racism manifests itself in many different ways. Regardless of the particular manifestation, such actions make clear that for many liberals, there remains a chasm between proclaiming Black life matters and taking measures that genuinely reflect this statement.
In a recent 45,000-word booklet, His Holiness Pope Francis delivered a critique of modern culture, economics, and politics. The encyclical letter, titled “Fratelli Tutti,” or “All Brothers,” is founded on a call for fraternity in all aspects of life, which the Pope uses to denounce individualism and market capitalism while encouraging global empathy.
Organizers for Princeton Mutual Aid (PMA), a community network created during the COVID-19 pandemic to help locals in need, utilized the creativity of the Princeton community during their storytelling fundraising event “Giving and Taking.”
Princeton students are constantly planning ahead, and for good reason: society rewards those with foresight. In many ways resume-building hinges on one’s ability to recognize how actions taken today can contribute to a successful tomorrow. Students investigate summer opportunities during fall semester as applications for competitive summer internships are often due months in advance. Undergraduates interested in health professions are encouraged to enroll in classes that cover subjects tested on the MCAT as early as freshman year.
The Eye of the Tiger is a cartoon series telling real anonymous stories from Princeton students. If you have a short story or something you think would make a good cartoon, please submit to this anonymous form. It doesn’t have to be funny — the goal is for this series to take the good anecdotes with the bad, and over time, paint a picture of the hilarious, chaotic, and often stressful or sad experiences that are our lives at Princeton.

On Saturday, Oct. 10, the Association of Black Princeton Alumni (ABPA) hosted “Countdown to Election 2020,” a panel discussion that centered around the importance of voting in the Nov. 3 election and examined voter suppression in the United States.
On Oct. 5, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced that it had settled with the University for nearly $1.2 million over “allegations of compensation discrimination” involving over one hundred female professors.
I’m a little more-than-perturbed regarding Princeton University’s recent choice to include “Tiger King” star Carole Baskin in their recently released video asking students to take the “Princeton Promise”: to socially-distance, wear masks, practice acceptable hygiene, and join the fight against COVID-19.
The pandemic has fundamentally challenged the classical music world. As recording labels and orchestras begin a painful, gradual process of reopening, they do so in an economic and artistic landscape ravaged by the closing of countless companies in artist management, performance, and more.
Starting the semester has felt like getting hit by a bullet train. It is easy to be consumed by the mountain load of work that doesn’t seem to stop piling. Several times this past month, I have felt like I was stuck between two huge rocks with no escape.
Set in Los Angeles, Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” (2016) focuses on Mia Dolan (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian Wilder (Ryan Gosling), a jazz musician, who fall in love with each other while pursuing their respective dreams.
The official Princeton transcript is not a pretty document, but it gets the job done. There, in 8.5 x 11 inches, I can visualize the entire last three years of my academic life, arrayed in neat lines of 12-point Courier font framed by a loud orange border that belies the intimacy of the words it circumscribes.
From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 14, and Thursday, Oct. 15, the University will host a blood drive to benefit the American Red Cross. The drive will be held at the Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding.
On Sept. 25, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposed a rule, which, if enacted, would set two- or four-year fixed term limits on international student visas and increase government supervision of applications for visa extensions. The announcement has drawn strong criticism from the University’s graduate student community.
