I used it to find rides home for the holidays, do statistical analyses on the top 10 states and cities of origin for my graduating class, and identify mutual connections through roommates I might know or shared residential colleges. On Sept. 6, 2019, that all changed when Tigerbook, my beloved research and social bonding tool for campus, removed all hometown, dorm, and roommate data from student profiles. For a time, photos disappeared as well. At first, I thought I could adjust, but two months later, I find myself using Tigerbook dramatically less frequently, and I believe that the removal of this data, while protecting students’ privacy to some extent, has overall resulted in a net loss to the Princeton campus.
Since Sunday, Nov. 10, University Health Services (UHS) has observed an outbreak of acute gastroenteritis on campus. Gastroenteritis, or stomach flu, causes nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea and spreads through misprepared food, contaminated water, and contact with infected people.

Matthews Theatre, in the McCarter complex, transforms into a haunted playground for humans and monsters alike. There is no telling who or what might suddenly leap from a balcony or crawl out from under the floor. Unsuspecting audience members may be thrust into the spotlight. But most unsettling is the way the lines blur between human and monster and between reality and nightmare in Lookingglass Theatre Company’s production of “Frankenstein.”
After a tough home stand last weekend, the No. 8/8 women’s hockey team (7–2–0 overall, 5–2–0 ECAC) headed to upstate New York to take on Union (2–9–1, 2–3–0 ECAC) and RPI (0–12–1, 0–6–0 ECAC). On Friday, the Tigers started slow but responded quickly and ended up dominating the Dutchwomen winning 7–2. Princeton continued its strong road presence defeating the Engineers 4–1.
In one of the most anticipated matchups in Jeopardy! history, Emma Boettcher ’14 faced off against the legendary James Holzhauer in last week’s Tournament of Champions two-day finals. Despite being the sole player in Jeopardy! history to ever beat Holzhauer, Boettcher could not catch her rival, who walked away with a grand prize of $250,000, this time around.
I write this column barely an hour before I am scheduled to meet with my African American studies preceptor about revising my midterm paper for a new grade. I wrote the paper amidst the chaos of midterms week, in between studying for two exams and drafting another paper. Even if I had had a reasonable amount of time to complete the assignment, the reality is, it would not reflect my best work. But in a typical Princeton course, it would be my final version of the essay.
We approach 2020 and women across the world still have to beg for access to basic menstrual health and hygiene products. As men continue to define what constitutes the human body and its needs, the fact that menstruation is a basic human function that half the world’s population experiences every month is completely drowned out during conversations about the body.

No. 9 Field Hockey (15–4, 7–0 Ivy) upset the second-ranked UConn Huskies on Sunday afternoon in Storrs, Conn. to advance to the NCAA Final Four. The 2–0 victory was the sweetest form of revenge for the Tigers, who lost to the Huskies in overtime at home in September.
In the gloriously queer “Take Me to Church,” Hozier intones, “The only Heaven I’ll be sent to / Is when I’m alone with you / I was born sick, but I love it.” In terms of lyrical expressions of erotic liberation, it’s hard to beat.
The 12 of us are wedged in small chairs, arranged in a casual semi-circle, facing the lecturing professor. Finally, he turns to us, asking a question. A few hands rise up into the air, and then one of us speaks. The hands go back up. Someone replies. The hands go up again. Someone else chirps in.
Men’s hockey (1–3–2, 0–3–1 ECAC) lost in overtime on Saturday night after Union College (3–11–0, 2–4–0 ECAC) scored with 15.4 seconds left in the sudden death period. The Tigers scored first in the game after junior defender Matthew Thom knocked one in a few minutes into the second period. During a power play later in the second period, Union tied the game 1–1, after sophomore forward Christian O’Neill was sent to the penalty box for slashing.
In their four years on the team Princeton football’s seniors have won two Ivy titles, gone on a 17-game winning streak, and blown out plenty of opponents. After all that success, Saturday’s lopsided loss against Yale on Senior Day was certainly not the farewell to Princeton Stadium they wanted.
One of the most important attributes for any sports team is the ability to bounce back after a tough loss. This Saturday, Princeton football (7–1, 4–1 Ivy) will have to hope its skill in that area hasn’t gotten too rusty.
