Wait, are those still a thing? Yes, yes they are. I, too, had the same doubts last week when I realized I had an assignment due in precept the next day, and I needed to at least glance at the readings to complete it. I clicked my way to E-Reserves, ready to knock out a few hundred pages in one swoop. It was blank. Not a single excessively long academic paper to be seen. Instead, I saw that my only option to access the elusive literature was purchasing a Pequod. A $98, 700-page collection bound in bright yellow construction paper. As I signed the receipt for this celebrated academic pamphlet, I wondered whether my intense hatred was perhaps misplaced. Was my rage blinding me from the Pequod’s pertinence?

Despite the snow and sleet that have invaded New York, thirty students will be heading to the Big Apple this weekend — in pointe shoes, nonetheless. For the first time, Princeton, Harvard and Columbia’s ballet companies will come together to perform. The three groups are the only student-run ballet troupes in the Ivy League. This collaboration has been long in the making, and what began as Columbia graduate student Elysia Dawn’s initial vision has grown into a full-fledged production.

On the day of the Orange and Black Ball, I woke up at three in the afternoon. Having missed all of my morning classes, I naturally decided there was no point in doing anything productive for the rest of the day. I spent that afternoon on YouTube and Facebook, taking breaks only to change clothes and eat. But that night, when I checked out my jacket and tie in the mirror, I immediately felt empowered. My state of mind was similar to the euphoria after nailing a test or a particularly good work-out. Of course, this euphoria abruptly ended when I spilled lemonade all over myself at the OBB.

Neon colors? Loud music? Impassioned exclamations of “bruuuaaaaaaaaaah!”? No, it’s not a rave. It’s Princeton Bhangra. The co-ed dance group, founded in the fall of 2011, specializes in energetic South Asian folk dance. Known for its rigorous movement and palpable enthusiasm, bhangra originated as a part of the harvest festival celebrations in the Punjab region of South Asia. Over the past 30 years, the style has garnered a rich and competitive following across college campuses in the United States, which has led to various fusions of bhangra with other styles, including hip-hop and reggae.

You go to Princeton, bitch. That means things are different here. You have left the real world and entered the Orange Bubble. You type “Frist” when you mean to type “first”. Your phone even auto-corrects it! “The slums” refers to sprawling Gothic architecture looking out over sprawling green courtyards. There are free fresh-baked cookies available to you every single night. Throwing beer in mansions seems to be a social norm —the list goes on. Of these changes, one has stood out from the rest. It is the bane of students old and new alike —Frist’s mailbox locks.

Congratulations, 2017—you are bright and talented and probably human. (Important note: This entire piece is written with the understanding that you are in fact sentient Homo sapiens. If that is not the case, disregard and resume upgrading your hard drive, robot/NSA overlord.)
So you’ve been down to New Frick for Orgo lecture, trekked up to Hoagie Haven for a Phat Lady, braved the journey to Forbes and ventured, perhaps, to the Battlefield. You might think you’ve mastered our Orange Bubble, but beyond the gates of our fair University lies a mysterious land of skateboarding teens, pastel sweaters, brown bears and tree-lined sidewalks ripe for discovery and conquest. I speak, of course, of the town of Princeton.
