The men’s and women’s track and field teams have a big weekend ahead of them in Ithaca, N.Y., with the indoor season culminating in the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships. The women are looking to improve upon their fifth-place finish from last year, while the men are hoping to defend their indoor team championship title. Both teams are hoping to build upon their momentum from strong individual performances throughout the season, as well as a team win on both sides at the Harvard-Yale-Princeton meet held several weeks ago.
This past weekend, the No. 6 women’s hockey team (22–5–1, 17–4–1 ECAC) played its last weekend of the regular season hosting to Ivy League foes, Brown (3–23–3, 2–18–2) and Yale (16–13–0, 13–9–0). Princeton ended the regular season with a sweep before the ECAC Tournament begins.
Every week, new posters paper the bulletin boards and light posts. They advertise dance and improv shows, orchestra and glee club concerts. Performing arts groups across campus put on different plays, musicals, dances, and concerts each semester, with one show often overlapping with another.

On the afternoon of Tuesday, Feb. 25, graduate students from the Woodrow Wilson School (WWS) gathered in Wallace Hall to voice their support for a pilot program, in which they would take a new, half-term distribution requirement centered around questions of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). As the students demonstrated, a council of faculty deliberated the issue in an adjacent room.
“I am exhausted,” I said to every person who asked how I was doing during the first week and a half of the semester. Naturally, the question-askers wanted to know why I was exhausted, and my answer was simple: the Princeton Triangle Club’s 2020 tour of “Once Uponzi Time.”

Ron Miasnik ’22 and Daniella Cohen ’22 were just first-years when they realized what they had in common: a connection to Israel through family and faith, a deep interest in tech and startups, and a desire to travel.
Earlier this week, Anna Wolcke lamented the upcoming closure of the Pink House food-share. Indeed, the loss of the Pink House as we know it will be a true tragedy. I recall spending many hours there baking, cooking, and brunching with friends. Even as an underclass student, I felt welcome within the house’s walls, a part of a community focused on sustainable living that I hadn’t been able to find elsewhere on campus.

I don’t believe that I would have liked my first-year self very much. That version of Leora was remarkably set in her ways. She stuck to certain ideas strongly, like that everyone who drank alcohol was bad, regardless of quantity and context. Sophomore Leora softened a bit — she realized some of the drinkers were OK — but she still silently vilified them and thought drinking was a mortal sin.
Princeton softball’s opening weekend was one of hurdles and hiccups — due to several cases of norovirus on the team, they did not play two out of the five scheduled games at Houston, and the illness weakened their performances in the other three. However, despite the adversity, the team fought back — “[They] were absolute warriors,” said head coach Lisa Van Ackeren.
I was 14 when I watched “The Social Network” for the first time, but even at this very moment four years later, I still remember everything about it. I especially remember the now-iconic opening scene between Jesse Eisenberg and Rooney Mara — the first time I saw it, I thought that the mile-a-minute dialogue sounded like music. It was the first time I had ever paid considerable attention to film dialogue. Today, I have aspirations of being a screenwriter — and Aaron Sorkin’s “The Social Network” is precisely the reason why.
