Moments into the second half, junior Tess D’Orsi scored her 64th goal of the season to even the score of the NCAA quarterfinal matchup between Princeton and Boston College at seven. From there, the Eagles would overwhelm the Tigers, dominating both off faceoffs and set plays to win 17–12 and advance to the NCAA women’s lacrosse final four in Baltimore. For the Tigers, an impressive season ends on a sour note, as a game that once looked winnable for the orange and black soon fell out of reach.

Music groups are widely celebrated and loved on campus. From the department ensembles to niche performance groups, rock to a capella, it seems like we have it all. The University frequently uses these groups as a selling point, hosting “This Side of Princeton” performing arts showcases at each Princeton Preview event. For bright-eyed prefrosh, the musical opportunities seem so beautiful and boundless — it’s easy to be captured by the talent and mesmerized by the fun. One arch sing, and before you know it, you’ve committed.

On the wrestling mat, Joe Dubuque is still only for a second. He lunges, he bounces, he spins. He folds himself in two. He drops to his hands and knees, springs back up. He flinches at each move Princeton’s opponent makes. But Dubuque isn’t Princeton’s wrestler; he puts on his nonstop, kinetic show from the coaches’ corner.
Katharine (Kate) Reed ’19 was recently named the valedictorian of the University’s Class of 2019. Hailing from Arnold, Md., Reed is concentrating in history with certificates in Latin American Studies and Spanish.

Over the past week, several undergraduates have sent emails to residential college listservs calling for suggestions for what they call the “redesign” of McCosh Health Center. While not specifying in any further detail the extent of this apparent “redesign,” or describing in any detail how such feedback will be incorporated, they state that University Health Services (UHS) “is undergoing a major remodeling” and “they want student input.” As is typical for such mass emails requesting student feedback, they reassure students that the survey, whose link they provide, is “super short.”
After over 100 hours of protest in front of Nassau Hall, Princeton Students for Title IX Reform (PIXR) updated their list of demands.

Recently, in the wake of three institutional embarrassments, the campus community has been unusually and excitingly responsive. Attempts to cover up and minimize scandals have blown up, from the non-randomness of room draw, the structural inequality in the form of introducing the criminal history checkbox on the graduate school application, to the ineffectiveness of the Title IX office. Activists have held their ground in calling for the reform of a dysfunctional Title IX system. Unfortunately, the administration has been utterly condescending to some of its most courageous community members.
