Finally, after 80 years of post-winter break exams, Princeton will modernize its calendar and allow students to have exams before break. Instead of stressing over exams under the mistletoe or sharing a New Year’s Red Bull to get started on a Dean’s Date assignment, students can truly enjoy the holidays without the cloud of pressure that academia has placed on our lives. Going forward, this change will have myriad effects, including better performance on exams, true rejuvenation from the extended break, and an honest step towards improving the mental health of students.
Last week, the ‘Prince’ reported that two students are working to revive Princeton Against Gun Violence (PAGV). The 2018 “We Call BS” rally, co-sponsored by PAGV, was held in the wake of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. This rally, as many of my upperclass student peers will remember, was one of the high points of student-led organizing on campus in recent years, along with the Title IX protesters last May.
This past weekend, the No. 6 women’s hockey team (20–5–1, 15–4–1 ECAC) played its last road weekend of the regular season traveling to upstate New York to face St. Lawrence (12–13–7, 7–9–4) and No. 7 Clarkson (21–5–6, 12–4–4). Princeton split the weekend beating the Saints on Friday night before losing to the Golden Knights on Saturday afternoon.

Tucked beneath Guyot Hall is a collection of oddities dating from the Cambrian period to the Holocene. It includes hundreds of fossils, minerals, and even entire preserved pieces of coral. The collection’s history is almost as interesting as the items it contains.
At the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Indoor Championship this weekend, men’s tennis defeated the Penn Quakers 4–3 before falling to the Harvard Crimson 4–2 in the semifinals. The Tigers faced off against Dartmouth in the third place game, a repeat of last year, and emerged victorious with a final score of 4–1.
Contradicting election results have become a common trend in recent American politics. The Iowa Caucus for the Democratic primary on Feb. 3 was the latest inconsistent election: Bernie Sanders won the popular vote by almost 6,000 individual votes in the state of Iowa, while Pete Buttigieg was declared the winner of the caucus because of his lead over Sanders in State Delegate Equivalents by just two delegates. The fundamental principle that the individual with the most votes should be crowned the victor has not reigned true in the United States, and particularly chaotic electoral disasters have reignited this central tension. The United States should fulfill the basic promise of its democracy and hold elections that actually represent the will of the people.
If you had asked someone in the winter of 2018 what the Democratic field of candidates would look like now, I doubt many would be able to predict the reality we are watching today. Even if you asked someone last summer, they likely would not have been able to guess.

On Friday, Feb. 14, students contacted their local representatives about a variety of issues through the Vote100 campaign’s Day of Action.

The section currently known as The Prospect has seen many changes over the last few years. Initially envisioned as “The Street,” the section was featured as a weekly addition to the Friday print issue, detailing different arts-and-culture-related events happening over the weekend and the following week.
I was shocked and grieved to learn this week that Charter will re-establish Bicker, a move I strongly oppose. I am a member of Charter’s class of 1976 — and a member of the group who began the fight for Charter to become non-selective and who celebrated when that fight succeeded in 1977.
