About a mile away from the University, nestled next to Dependable Cleaners and Tiger Garage, lies the fire station. The building has a brick exterior, interrupted by three large garage doors and the words “Princeton Fire Department” sprawled across its outside.

When I was 16 years old, I painted a portrait of Isaac Newton and hung it in my room. Every night that I would have to study for math or physics, I looked up at it for inspiration. As one of the great minds of the Scientific Revolution, his image motivated me to strive in those subjects to finally become a physics major. The portrait still hangs in my dorm today, and while it got me through high school physics, it doesn’t quite have the same effect now that I’m in college.
Earlier this semester, I published part one of a series outlining the systemic causes for the gender inequality among Princeton’s faculty. While Princeton is not the worst example of gender discrimination in academia, the lack of female faculty serves as a stark reminder that the University must do more than erect monuments or paste QR codes to the sidewalk to remedy this problem.
If you ever wanted to hear a song with lyrics comprising solely of anonymous people’s opinions on eating ass, then all you needed to do was to be in 1903 basement at 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 4, before following the group to Edwards Hall upon being kicked out by another group that had reserved the basement just before 9 p.m. If you were there, you would have gotten to see Allison Spann ’20 bring to life a series of Tiger Confessions while she wore — among other items — purple boots, a floor-length black tulle skirt, and a shirt that could only be described as a multi-color Hawaiian shirt meets the Solo “Jazz” cup.
Playing against the Brown Bears (1–6–2 overall, 0–1–1 Ivy League) in Providence, R.I. this Saturday, men’s soccer (6–3–1, 0–1–1) faced 110 minutes of adversity. The Tigers conceded a 13th-minute goal to the lower-ranked Bears, earned four yellow cards in the span of 18 minutes, lost two starters — one to a red card, the other to injury — and suffered through an excruciating double overtime. Even senior forward Danny Hampton’s 87th-minute goal was not enough to energize the Tigers: the game ended in a 1–1 draw.
No. 8 field hockey (8–4 overall, 3–0 Ivy) put together a dominating performance to defeat Columbia (5–6, 1–2) by a score of 8–1 on Saturday afternoon at Bedford Field. The seven-goal win is the Tigers’ largest margin of victory since they defeated Brown last year 8–0.
After its first loss in Ivy play against Cornell last week, the Women’s Volleyball team (8–6, 4–1 Ivy) faced Brown (9–6, 1–3) and Yale (9–5, 4–1) this past Saturday and Sunday. The Tigers won both games, beating Brown in four sets and Yale in three.
After being the beneficiary of an overtime goal last weekend, Princeton (4–5–2, 1–2 Ivy) was defeated 1–0 by Brown (9–1–1, 3–0 Ivy) in Providence on Saturday thanks to a late goal by Brown’s freshman forward Ava Seelenfreund in its third match in Ivy League play .
As a sophomore, it is a daily occurrence for me to hear my friends utter phrases such as “maybe I’ll take a gap year,” “I need a break,” or — best yet — “I think I’ll drop out.” There are a lot of stress factors here at Princeton — academically and socially — and sophomore year seems to be around the time when people start to feel the effects of an approaching burnout.
After discovering not too long ago a soft spot in my heart for old cinema, I found myself equipped with a free library card and an idle summer itinerary, of which I took full advantage. This July I watched dozens of films: comedy, drama, Technicolor, black-and-white, musical, Western, and more.
