As I completed my nightly rounds of Twitter on Monday, I was disoriented when screenshots of various Princetonians being blocked by professor Robert George flooded my timeline. Eventually, I came upon the poll tweeted by George that resulted in such ruckus: “By listing their ‘preferred pronouns’ people are making sure that others know their: sex, gender [or] ideology.”
The room, or rather the bedroom, has become the spawning point for students everywhere. We get up in various time zones to take classes from our desks, our kitchens, and — most comfortably — our beds, and we greet our peers through Zoom. Our rooms are sometimes shared with others; other times they are decorated in our individuality. They could be covered in posters and art or permeated by plants and books. Regardless of its interior design, the room is where the never-ending cycle of class, sleep, Netflix, eat, and repeat takes place.
Eight new solar projects will soon be built on or around Princeton’s campus, according to the University’s Office of Sustainability. These expansions will support the University’s commitment to reach net-zero emissions by 2046.
Back when I was procrastinating on my midterm exams, as a Princeton student should, I came across not one but multiple TikToks that featured Le Creuset cookware. I wasn’t particularly upset with this discovery, since I’ve considered Le Creuset items, especially the Dutch ovens, to be very nicely designed — even pretty, in a very homey way. Even better, the TikToks paired the different color options Le Creuset offers with images of matching interior designs. Overall, they were very enjoyable to watch — a nice change of pace from the comedy, dance, and relationship content that seems to be the most prevalent on the app.
On the last Saturday of September, as I was driving out from Costco on my way to Kroger, I saw a man holding a sign — only one lane of traffic away — asking for help. I was driving fast enough that I couldn’t fully read the man’s sign, and before I could do much else, I was already on the intersection’s other side.
Every year, Princeton University Players (PUP) — the University’s only completely student-run musical theater group — hosts its annual all-frosh musical, and this year is no exception in spite of the pandemic. On Nov. 28 at 7 p.m. EST, “Sex on Broadway 2020: Things We Missed” debuted via YouTube live stream as PUP’s first-ever virtual musical.
Today, living a short walk from the Princeton University Art Museum, which houses works by the likes of Rembrandt, Picasso, and Monet, seems like an inaccessible, pre-pandemic dream. In spite of the campus-wide separation from in-person enjoyment of all types of culture, the museum has worked hard to continue providing programs so that those interested in its happenings can continue to learn and be enriched.
Theatre Intime and the Princeton Shakespeare Company’s decision to remotely produce “As You Like It,” Shakespeare’s lighthearted pastoral comedy, strikes a pleasantly discordant note in a year defined by a global pandemic, accelerating political polarization, and many sacrifices, big and small.
This October, three first-year students sat down with hot beverages and interview questions, prepared for a casual conversation with University President Christopher Eisgruber ’83. But Eisgruber is only one of many high-profile guests these students — who have yet to experience an in-person semester — have spoken with over the past few months.
“We are not optimistic about University-sponsored international travel in summer 2021,” Associate Provost for International Affairs and Operations Aly Kassam-Remtulla wrote to students earlier this week.
For many first-years, residential college advisers (RCAs) and peer academic advisors (PAAs) take on the role of mentor and friend, snack plug and course scheduling wizard, rule enforcer and confidante — all while balancing the everyday responsibilities that come with being a Princeton student themselves. And in a virtual semester, these responsibilities have only grown, leading to a change in compensation for both PAAs and RCAs.
Prominent conservative professor Robert P. George received backlash on social media last week after posting a poll that questioned pronoun usage, which multiple students who spoke to The Daily Princetonian found transphobic and invalidating of nonbinary and gender-nonconforming experiences.
At a Princeton Council meeting on Dec. 14, Vice President for Campus Life Rochelle Calhoun told local officials that the University will begin a “community walk program” this spring to help monitor public health compliance for students living locally.
“We are heading into a period of a lot of construction activity on campus,” University architect Ron McCoy said during a Council of the Princeton University Community (CPUC) meeting on Monday.
Spring move-in will take place throughout the third week of January for undergraduates, a substantial shift in the timeline following altered quarantine guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the State of New Jersey.
Cassidy Yang, a graduate student studying within the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, died in a car crash in Ohio on Dec. 5. She was 26.
Students will again be able to take any class on a pass/D/fail (PDF) basis during the spring 2021 semester, and individual departments will still have the final decision about which prerequisites and departmental requirements they will require to be taken for a grade.
After the University announced it would invite all undergraduates back to campus for the spring semester, students had 10 days to determine whether they intend to live on campus.
As I sat down to watch Theatre Intime’s first production of the year, “As You Like It: A Radio Play,” I confronted the conditions of being an audience member in the age of Zoom theater. Gone, for the moment, was the frigid air of Hamilton Murray Theater, which has housed Theatre Intime since the company acquired the space in 1922. I did not stumble down the theater’s darkened aisles. Nor did I scan rows of dimly lit faces, curious to see if anyone I knew would be joining me for this year’s Princeton Shakespeare Company (PSC) production.
