In a newly-announced change to financial aid policy at Cap and Gown Club, all members on University financial aid will now receive a grant for club membership, and members on full financial aid will pay “no out-of-pocket costs.” Previously, the Cap financial aid policy was based on a yearly application process.
In a recent article in The New York Post, Scott Newman ’21 expressed his displeasure with his experiences at Princeton, particularly what he regarded as an atmosphere of careerism that dominated the school. These criticisms served as a convenient segue into promoting his new 90-page memoir, “The Night Before The Morning After,” printed by the “hybrid publisher” New Degree Press.
On Friday, Dec. 18, the American Whig-Cliosophic Society (Whig-Clio) presented U.S. Representative Terri Sewell ’86 (D-Ala.) with its highest honor, the James Madison Award for Distinguished Public Service (JMA). Sewell is the first female African American recipient in the honor’s 60-year history.
Maya Aronoff ’19 GS ’23 thought she would spend the two years after graduation fighting the Trump administration’s family separations at the border. Instead, she has been tackling one of the many issues in the justice system exacerbated by COVID-19: the health of federal inmates.
By now, many in the Princeton community have already borne witness to the saga of Scott Newman ’21 in some way or another. Perhaps you’ve read the publicly available chapters of his memoir, “The Night Before the Morning After,” in which he recounts tales of his adolescence and time at the University. Maybe you’ve watched his promotional video, or skimmed the New York Post’s coverage, or pored over the hundreds of comments on his recent posts in Ivy League meme Facebook pages.
Between my writing seminar classes, research papers, a pandemic, and watching the Artsakh War unfold before my eyes — all within the confines of my bedroom — I can definitively say it has been a draining semester. I remember sitting in my car after finals, a paralyzed and hollow husk, simply wanting to escape the entropy of my surroundings and listen to the coaxing verses of “Lost in Hollywood” by System of A Down (SoaD).
Days after the University announced the creation of an endowed professorship of Indigenous Studies, the Humanities Council awarded an Exploratory Grant in Collaborative Humanities to Professor of English and American Studies Sarah Rivett. The grant will enable Rivett to launch the Native American and Indigenous Studies Initiative (NAISIP), which will include a working group for the next academic year.

In recent days, I must admit that I have fallen prey to the binge-worthiness of many of Netflix’s top shows. Alongside reading “Tell Me How Long the Train’s Been Gone” by James Baldwin and “The Selected Works of Audre Lorde,” compiled by Roxane Gay, “The Crown” has become a steady fixture of my post-semester life. I watch it while I’m eating my meals, when I feel no concern for life beyond my room, and in the frequent moments when I have been bored out of my mind, drowning in feelings of directionlessness.
A study led by teams of faculty and researchers at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment and the High Meadows Environmental Institute (HMEI) published on Dec. 15 outlines five different feasible and affordable pathways for the United States to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This brief timeline would rely on fast-paced technological development, widespread infrastructure transformations, and pervasive societal change in order to stave off the impending threats of climate change.
As I completed my nightly rounds of Twitter on Monday, I was disoriented when screenshots of various Princetonians being blocked by professor Robert George flooded my timeline. Eventually, I came upon the poll tweeted by George that resulted in such ruckus: “By listing their ‘preferred pronouns’ people are making sure that others know their: sex, gender [or] ideology.”
The room, or rather the bedroom, has become the spawning point for students everywhere. We get up in various time zones to take classes from our desks, our kitchens, and — most comfortably — our beds, and we greet our peers through Zoom. Our rooms are sometimes shared with others; other times they are decorated in our individuality. They could be covered in posters and art or permeated by plants and books. Regardless of its interior design, the room is where the never-ending cycle of class, sleep, Netflix, eat, and repeat takes place.
Eight new solar projects will soon be built on or around Princeton’s campus, according to the University’s Office of Sustainability. These expansions will support the University’s commitment to reach net-zero emissions by 2046.
Back when I was procrastinating on my midterm exams, as a Princeton student should, I came across not one but multiple TikToks that featured Le Creuset cookware. I wasn’t particularly upset with this discovery, since I’ve considered Le Creuset items, especially the Dutch ovens, to be very nicely designed — even pretty, in a very homey way. Even better, the TikToks paired the different color options Le Creuset offers with images of matching interior designs. Overall, they were very enjoyable to watch — a nice change of pace from the comedy, dance, and relationship content that seems to be the most prevalent on the app.
On the last Saturday of September, as I was driving out from Costco on my way to Kroger, I saw a man holding a sign — only one lane of traffic away — asking for help. I was driving fast enough that I couldn’t fully read the man’s sign, and before I could do much else, I was already on the intersection’s other side.
