Released in July, Taylor Swift’s eighth studio album, “folklore,” surprised music fans worldwide.

What once was a temporary lockdown, assumed to last a month or two, has stretched into a socially isolated summer and a fall term off-campus. What once were normal activities — getting coffee, seeing friends at a party, attending a lecture — seem hopelessly out of reach. And, what once were the University’s on-campus mental health resources, accessed by some but ignored by many, have become crucial for students facing COVID-19’s emotional toll.

Brazeau, who is originally from Minnesota, is currently living near campus with three graduate students from Princeton’s architecture program.

I fell in love with Princeton the minute I got to campus, and being away for a whole year was just going to be too hard.”

The first time I saw a video thanking and cheering on our health care workers — including our doctors, nurses, and EMTs — I cried.
Of all the phrases tossed around in the arena of politics and punditry, none brings me more bemusement than “the leaders of the Black community.” I’ve heard about these leaders in precept, in the news, on Twitter, everywhere. They are never named, nor is the community in question given any tangible bounds, which leaves my mind free to wonder: Who are they? Oprah Winfrey? Barack Obama? Serena Williams? Reverend Al Sharpton? Dave Chappelle? Lizzo? Who are the few individuals empowered to act as the singular voices of the entire Black population?
On Election Day, New Jersey voters overwhelmingly supported — with 67 percent approval — a constitutional amendment to legalize recreational marijuana for those over the age of 21. However, the state legislature still needs to pass a bill on the matter before the drug becomes legal.
