In the aftermath of the calamitous shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas (MSD) High School on Valentine’s Day of 2018, over 400 Princeton community members rallied against gun violence outside of Frist Campus Center in March of the same year. Since then, the campus has been virtually silent on gun reform issues — and two first year students are hard at work to change that.

The climate crisis is with us now, from the floods in Indonesia to the fires in Australia that have been burning out of control since June 2019. Looking ahead, land occupied by 150 million people will likely be permanently below the high tide line by 2050, devastating cities and regions around the world. For instance, modeling predicts that Southern Vietnam “could all but disappear.” The vast populations projected to be affected forebodes the possibilities of mass displacement and surging climate refugeeism.
When I investigated Bicker for The Daily Princetonian two years ago, I distinctly recall an Ivy Club member telling me, “I went to the Lawrenceville School. A lot of people in Ivy went to Lawrenceville.”

Earlier this past year, on June 27, 2019, bill A-4553 passed through the New Jersey General Assembly and sought to grant qualified immunity, also known as civil immunity, to police officers working at private universities. At the University, this legislation would have granted officers from the Department of Public Safety (DPS) immunity from civil liability in court, except for when a grievance violates a “clearly established” right, as long the officers can prove that they were acting “in good faith” during the event in question. The eagerness to accept the benefits of such a bill ignores the underlying problem it can cause: inefficient protection of community members’ rights in civil litigation which involves police misconduct.

The team is currently 5–4 overall, but is 3–0 in EIVA conference play. In the American Volleyball Coaches Association’s weekly national top-15, the Tigers have moved up a spot to be tied at No. 11 with Penn State.
History was made on Sunday night. For the first time in the Oscars’ 92 years, a foreign language film, “Parasite,” took home the award for Best Picture. As a Korean-American student who’d seen the film initially in Korea, I sat waiting by the screen, shocked and elated. Though the film was almost universally acclaimed by both moviegoers and critics alike, the win still came as a surprise. Many had lost hope for the Oscars; after the lingering problem of #OscarsSoWhite in 2015 and the disappointment of “Green Book” winning in 2019, it seemed like the acclaimed awards ceremony was becoming increasingly distant from the movement of masterful filmmaking and rewarding movies that many felt were patronizing to audiences of color. “Parasite” proved both to viewers and future artists, including students at Princeton and across the world, that new voices could change this past.
On Monday, Feb. 10, the White House released its budget proposal for the 2021 fiscal year. The $4.8 trillion proposal, similar to previous ones the Trump administration has produced, includes cuts to several federal programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and Medicaid, as well as to spending on education and research.

On Jan. 30, the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a global health emergency, increasing concerns around an already contentious situation that has caused the U.S. government to issue a travel advisory on visiting China, where the outbreak occurred. In response, many universities, including Princeton, have issued advisories on dealing with the ramifications of the outbreak. The University of California at Berkeley recently came under fire for an Instagram post advising students on how to navigate the outbreak that listed xenophobia among common reactions, with numerous parties questioning this normalization of racism.
