On Friday night, upon receiving the news of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, I was devastated: my biggest role model had passed away. Justice Ginsburg’s work for the feminist movement is the reason I changed my major from Psychology to Anthropology and decided I wanted to go to law school.
On Sept. 2, 2020, amid a national reckoning with racism, University President Christopher L. Eisgruber ’83 announced that his administration would “combat systemic racism at Princeton and beyond.” Factoring heavily into his plans were several committees, charged with priorities that ranged from inclusive hiring practices to campus iconography.
To help finance its 10-year Capital Plan, the University raised $500 million in bonds this June. The sale brought the University’s total debt close to $3 billion.
The University’s Department of Religion and Program in Population Studies (PIPS) have announced they will not accept graduate school applications for the fall 2021 cycle in order to better support current graduate students.
When outrage first erupted over Lawnparties, my eyes were off of the University, as I was focusing on my own projects. Yet the backlash to the $80,000 virtual event became so pervasive that I decided to begin my own investigation.
COVID-19 is a global crisis, but make no mistake: despite what government officials, business leaders, and University administrators would like you to believe, we are not “all in this together.” Instead, these powerful groups have aligned themselves against working people, students, and minorities by forcing them to bear the combined weight of a pandemic, mass unemployment, and racist violence at the hands of the police.
In the United States, even viruses discriminate. COVID-19 is making the country’s health gap impossible to ignore. Headlines announcing “Minorities are Disproportionately Dying From Covid-19 at a Younger Age” and “Black and Hispanic Children are Impacted More Severely by Coronavirus, Research Shows” make national news. Highlighting disparities in Americans’ health is an important step in rectifying this inequality. But despite recent media attention given to minorities’ vulnerabilities to COVID, Marshallese Americans’ pandemic plight has failed to garner national, much less campus-wide, attention. We must act now to expand Marshallese access to healthcare.
At Sunday’s Undergraduate Student Government (USG) meeting, Regan Crotty ’00, Director of Gender Equity and Title IX administrator, reviewed the University’s modified Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy and University Sexual Misconduct Policy.
On Monday, Sept. 21, the Council of the Princeton University Community (CPUC) resumed its regular meetings via Zoom. During the meeting, administrators commented on the Department of Education’s recently-announced investigation into the University, gave an update on campus COVID-19 protocols, and spoke briefly about plans for the spring semester.
On Thursday, Sept. 17, the University made public what The Daily Princetonian reported in June: With a $20 million donation, Kwanza Jones ’93 and José E. Feliciano ’94, a married couple, have given the largest gift by Black and Latino alumni in the University’s 274-year history.
One late night in freshman spring, I sat staring at a spreadsheet full of random numbers that apparently described my spending habits and moods that semester. My writing seminar was called “Your Life in Numbers,” and for our Dean’s Date assignment, we had to capture some aspect of our life in numbers. It turns out that retail therapy is real, and that I spent a lot more money on days that I was sad. Albeit, it was mostly on snacks from the U-store, so maybe that makes me more of an emotional eater than spender.
The citizens of Paris awoke one morning in 1792 to find the statue of Louis XV toppled and destroyed, laying in pieces on the ground of its eponymic square. France had been undergoing the early stages of what had been called by the likes of Edmund Burke and many others “the most astonishing [revolution] that has hitherto happened in the world,” a movement in which ancient social and political truths were challenged. Oppressive institutions that had long masked themselves in benevolence were being re-examined and overturned. Accepted truths about status, religion, and power were rejected. And iconography which had long been a symbol of the greatness of France was smashed to the ground, for its true meaning exalted the elites of an oppressive regime. This was a revolution, and it would give its name to the now reclaimed square, the Place de la Révolution.
A new report from the U.S. Crisis Monitor shows that despite disproportionate media coverage of lootings and violence associated with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, an overwhelming 93 percent of BLM demonstrations this summer were peaceful.
On and off the field, college athletes, especially Black players who make up the majority of athletes in the revenue-generating football and basketball programs, have long been exploited for profit. As their coaches and schools make millions, athletes are forbidden from profiting off their skill and marketability. This was the status quo before the pandemic.
The Department of Public Safety (DPS) issued evacuation orders this morning after a bomb threat was received for Firestone Library, the University Art Museum, the University Chapel, and Nassau Hall.
Almost immediately after the Supreme Court announced the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, friends began reaching out. They told me they had heard “the news” and wanted to know if I was okay. The women in my life all felt the need to check in, as we collectively experienced what felt like a personal blow. Her death meant an overwhelming loss to women and girls who want to see a future where their worth is built into the foundations of their country.
Without the beautiful gothic architecture, the lecture spaces, eating clubs, the athletes on motorized scooters zipping down Washington St., what is campus? Without running into people at meals or in class or at the Street late at night, what is student life? Without the campus and the friends, and all the connection that comes with the physicality of it, what is Princeton?
