Today, living a short walk from the Princeton University Art Museum, which houses works by the likes of Rembrandt, Picasso, and Monet, seems like an inaccessible, pre-pandemic dream. In spite of the campus-wide separation from in-person enjoyment of all types of culture, the museum has worked hard to continue providing programs so that those interested in its happenings can continue to learn and be enriched.
Theatre Intime and the Princeton Shakespeare Company’s decision to remotely produce “As You Like It,” Shakespeare’s lighthearted pastoral comedy, strikes a pleasantly discordant note in a year defined by a global pandemic, accelerating political polarization, and many sacrifices, big and small.
This October, three first-year students sat down with hot beverages and interview questions, prepared for a casual conversation with University President Christopher Eisgruber ’83. But Eisgruber is only one of many high-profile guests these students — who have yet to experience an in-person semester — have spoken with over the past few months.
“We are not optimistic about University-sponsored international travel in summer 2021,” Associate Provost for International Affairs and Operations Aly Kassam-Remtulla wrote to students earlier this week.
For many first-years, residential college advisers (RCAs) and peer academic advisors (PAAs) take on the role of mentor and friend, snack plug and course scheduling wizard, rule enforcer and confidante — all while balancing the everyday responsibilities that come with being a Princeton student themselves. And in a virtual semester, these responsibilities have only grown, leading to a change in compensation for both PAAs and RCAs.
Prominent conservative professor Robert P. George received backlash on social media last week after posting a poll that questioned pronoun usage, which multiple students who spoke to The Daily Princetonian found transphobic and invalidating of nonbinary and gender-nonconforming experiences.
At a Princeton Council meeting on Dec. 14, Vice President for Campus Life Rochelle Calhoun told local officials that the University will begin a “community walk program” this spring to help monitor public health compliance for students living locally.
“We are heading into a period of a lot of construction activity on campus,” University architect Ron McCoy said during a Council of the Princeton University Community (CPUC) meeting on Monday.
Spring move-in will take place throughout the third week of January for undergraduates, a substantial shift in the timeline following altered quarantine guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the State of New Jersey.
Cassidy Yang, a graduate student studying within the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, died in a car crash in Ohio on Dec. 5. She was 26.
Students will again be able to take any class on a pass/D/fail (PDF) basis during the spring 2021 semester, and individual departments will still have the final decision about which prerequisites and departmental requirements they will require to be taken for a grade.
After the University announced it would invite all undergraduates back to campus for the spring semester, students had 10 days to determine whether they intend to live on campus.
As I sat down to watch Theatre Intime’s first production of the year, “As You Like It: A Radio Play,” I confronted the conditions of being an audience member in the age of Zoom theater. Gone, for the moment, was the frigid air of Hamilton Murray Theater, which has housed Theatre Intime since the company acquired the space in 1922. I did not stumble down the theater’s darkened aisles. Nor did I scan rows of dimly lit faces, curious to see if anyone I knew would be joining me for this year’s Princeton Shakespeare Company (PSC) production.
Incumbent members Michele L. Tuck-Ponder and Beth A. Behrend as well as newcomer Jean Y. Durbin have won the Nov. 3 election for the Princeton Board of Education, according to a Nov. 20 update from the Mercer County Board of Elections. They ran for three open seats on the 10-member board and were elected for three-year terms.
In the documentary “HyperNormalisation,” Adam Curtis explains that cyberspace, as it was initially conceived, promised an alternate world free from the politics and corruption of the “real world.” This digital realm, its idealist advocates believed, presented an opportunity to build a democratic utopia accessible anywhere by anyone — it would be a sacred and protected space separate from reality.
Trading in large gatherings for Zoom dinners, people worldwide will be experiencing a holiday season completely unlike that of past years. Combine that with Princeton’s calendar shift toward a much longer winter break, giving students more time to pursue non-academic activities and leisure, and some people may be stumped about what to get for the holidays to be equipped for free time. Enter this guide, composed of affordable gifts that Princeton students will truly appreciate for the extended winter break and next semester’s mostly online classes. Everything on this guide is best purchased at small businesses to keep them afloat, but if necessary, they are also available at the large retailers mentioned below.
One of my best friends has a great memory, and, over the years, she has become the de facto historian of our friend group. She can remember all the important things: the shenanigans, where we were, who we were with. That kind of memory is a gift to all of her friends, and it demonstrates an important lesson for a year as tumultuous as 2020. With two vaccines for COVID-19 entering new phases of testing, a semester on campus, and a new year fast approaching, some people are justifiably itching to move on. These developments should undoubtedly be celebrated, as should the prospect of a fresh start. But, just like my friend, we cannot forget everything we have been through: Instead, should find creative and healthy ways to catalogue all that has happened in 2020.
Early in November, Harry Styles made history as the first man to have a solo feature on the cover of American Vogue magazine — but he went even further, making history while wearing a dress. There have been many pioneers of crossing clothing boundaries in the past (Prince, Elton John, or David Bowie) but Styles’ historic cover brought the fight for gender-neutral dressing to the forefront of our current cultural debate.
