Spring approaches. Thesis deadlines loom. And the pressure to find a job mounts. Last semester, Exxon Mobil graced the grounds of Princeton campus as part of the Fall HireTigers Career Fair. All the while, the college divestment movement is gathering steam. Georgetown, sometimes regarded as more conservative than many of its peers, divested. Almost 400 members of Harvard’s faculty issued a letter in support.

It’s happened a few times now, enough to call it a phenomenon of sorts: a friend and I head to Firestone to study, find a quiet spot to embark on a 200-page reading due the next morning or reply to a few emails that have been eroding in my inbox for day, and hunker down. I unzip my backpack, unfold my laptop, unlock my academic toolbox (i.e. my pencil case), whip out a book … and then put on my glasses. Even for friends who’ve known me for quite some time, the shock is instantaneous.

Last year, bats invaded Holder Hall, 1976 Hall, and the third floor of Frist Campus Center. On Wednesday, Feb. 19, one bat sought a larger audience. Around 11:30 a.m., students and faculty spied a solitary bat in the middle of an ECO 100: Introduction to Microeconomics lecture in McCosh 50.
On Monday, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos ’86 announced that he will donate 10 billion dollars in an effort to combat climate change. Properly identified as an especially abusive employer, according to reports by Amazon workers, Bezos now seeks to turn over a new leaf, or at least to take on the appearance of redemption and rehabilitation. We should, however, regard Bezos’s shallow attempts at building a shiny public profile with both apprehension and contempt. In making this pledge, Bezos claims that climate change is the biggest threat to the future of humanity. In reality, it is the capitalist system, responsible for Bezos’s financial clout, that represents the overriding obstacle to human well-being.
How are you supposed to get your hair braided in Princeton when most local shops haven’t seen the hair type chart or even heard of the word “porosity”? Looking for Beyoncé-inspired “Lemonade” braids? Good luck getting them done here.
Recent developments in Latin America, such as the transport protests in Chile, which have transcended beyond discontent for high fares, and Alberto Fernández’s presidential victory in Argentina, have signaled a spike in leftist activity in these countries not seen since the decline of the “Pink Tide.” Among other related examples, these events indicate an odd regression for a region which, until recently, had consistently ousted leftist leaders due to corruption, economic instability, and abuse of power.

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.

Princeton split the weekend beating the Saints on Friday night before losing to the Golden Knights on Saturday afternoon.
