It started with an Ethiopian restaurant that had outdoor seating but limited space. My friends and I were wearing masks in the park, but we wanted to grab dinner, and I only realized it was a sit-down place when they beckoned us inside. We took off our masks when we ate, and then, gradually, when we talked as well. Then one of my friends wanted me to meet the cat she was fostering. Saying ‘no’ seemed cold, heartless even. I wasn’t living at home anymore, a few minutes inside couldn’t hurt anyone. My plans for flawless social distancing already shirked, any further missteps no longer seemed like a big deal.
On Monday, Sept. 14, Dillon Gymnasium, the primary fitness and recreation facility on campus, will re-open for student use for the first time since its mid-March closure.

I had sung away Monday morning with ABBA’s “Waterloo” on repeat, dancing as I mopped the floor and swept dirt off the porch. After spending over two weeks in even stricter isolation than usual, I was going to visit my grandparents, whom I hadn’t seen for months, and I was cleaning the house before leaving in the afternoon. Then came the email: my SARS-CoV-2 test, which I’d taken as a precaution before seeing my grandparents, and not at all because I was symptomatic, was positive.
Back in mid-March, when I arrived back in Australia, I hadn’t spent longer than two months at home for the last two years. When I left for America in the fall of 2018 to begin my freshman year at Princeton, I left my entire life behind with it — my friends from high school, the club team where I used to train, the part-time jobs I had tutoring local kids or lifeguarding at my school’s 25m indoor pool.

Fall semester classes used to kick off on a Wednesday. A wake-up slap after the four-day fever dream known as Frosh Week.
To the extent we recall, every year of our lives was planned: we go to elementary school, middle school, high school, and then college. The earliest ones, discharged from such obligations, were forgotten. Thus, we essentially have no experience going through a whole year without projecting it first. And this lack of control is frightening.
On Wednesday, President Christopher L. Eisgruber ’83 announced several new initiatives and potential plans aimed at diversifying University faculty and leadership and addressing systemic racism within and beyond the University.
On a typical Friday night in the dead of New Jersey winter, strolling through a narrow street off University Place and just short of Nassau, one might find an unusual scene: as many as 100 students celebrating Shabbat, the weekly Jewish day of rest, by dining outdoors in a tent adjacent to a small house. Shabbat is marked traditionally by refraining from work and partaking in communal meals.
