After arriving home this spring, I felt that part of my identity was lost. Training consisted of my makeshift gym in my garage instead of a pool, and I did not know the next time I would touch a water polo ball. I had a really hard time wrapping my head around this, and for the first month of quarantine, I wanted nothing to do with working out. Like all collegiate athletes, I worked my entire life to get to this level, so I was grieving over something that I had lost. However, I knew that all of my teammates and coaches were grieving in their own way. I knew athletes across the country were trying to cope, too.
Eighteen-year-olds quarantining across the country have spent the last six months in sweatpants, on couches, in front of TV screens; in COVID-19, many saw boredom, apathy, and frustration. Hope Perry ’24 saw an opportunity.
When COVID-19 sent students packing in the middle of the spring semester, the University announced it would amend academic policies, including the addition of the pass/D/fail (PDF) grading option to all undergraduate courses.

After the University backtracked on its previously announced fall reopening plan on Friday — disinviting first-year students and juniors from campus — many students now face entirely new factors in deciding whether to take a year off.
In my sophomore spring, I returned from a gap semester spent taking care of my mental health. I felt refreshed and excited to restart my Princeton journey as a potential Economics major.
Students participating in the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) were previously told that they “will be able to live on campus the whole year.” Now, that decision may be reversed.
What began as an email rant by Larry Giberson ’23 turned into a three-part exchange: Giberson’s publication in The Princeton Tory, a response here at the ‘Prince’ by Imani Mulrain ’23, and a final commentary on Mulrain’s response by Hillel Koslowe ’22. At the risk of contributing a poorly tacked-on epilogue to the trilogy, I’d like to point to something I feel has been missing from the conversation.
“Everybody was at home sitting down for months … Then what happened? The George Floyd murder happened,” said Michael Dexter George, a Tobagonian-American bookstore owner in Newark. “We were all at home. White America saw something that Black people have been going through for years.”
Adam Burrows is a professor of astrophysics at the University and has served on the Board of Trustees of the Aspen Center for Physics. In the past, he was the chair of the Board on Physics and Astronomy of the National Research Council and has worked on a number of committees for NASA.
The University has paid a $5.8 million settlement “plus therapeutic relief” to retirement plan holders in the class action lawsuit of Elysee Nicolas v. The Trustees of Princeton University, according to a motion filed on July 28.
The Trump administration is rejecting new applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, defying a federal court order.
In late June, the Princeton Open Campus Coalition (POCC) published a letter that asked the University to reaffirm its commitment to upholding freedom of speech and thought. Since its release, we have been met with a deluge of dissent that misrepresents the arguments expressed in the letter.
In a complete reversal of previously announced plans, first-years and juniors will no longer be permitted to live on campus in the fall semester, the University announced on Friday. All teaching will be conducted remotely.
As the Black Lives Matter movement continues to spark debate and action across the country, Princeton’s administration has been playing on both sides of the issue with its recent announcements and public messages to students. About a month ago, the University removed Woodrow Wilson’s name from the School of Public and International Affairs, with President Eisgruber stating in a letter to all students, “Princeton is part of an America that has too often disregarded, ignored, or excused racism, allowing the persistence of systems that discriminate against Black people.”
Students living on campus in the fall are “emphatically discouraged” from traveling for “any reason and to any location outside the immediate Princeton area,” read an email to students on Thursday from Associate Provost for International Affairs and Operations Aly Kassam-Remtulla.
On July 20, a white Princeton student invoked the n-word in a public Facebook comment attempting to bait a dissenting Black commenter. News of this incident spread quickly among Princeton students, some of whom drafted a petition calling for a discrimination hearing. As of Aug. 4, 2020, over 1,500 individuals have signed this petition. In response, Vice President for Campus Life Rochelle Calhoun emailed all undergraduate students, announcing that while harmful, this use of a racial slur did not violate our University’s Freedom of Expression policy.
Shortly after a white student’s use of the n-word on social media provoked intense backlash, administrators asserted that the University permits certain uses of offensive slurs — including language that runs “contrary to Princeton’s commitment to stand for inclusivity and against racism.”
For Princeton Record Exchange owner Jon Lambert, March 21 is a date he’ll always remember. That’s when Gov. Phil Murphy signed New Jersey’s stay-at-home-order, mandating the closure of all non-essential businesses.
Like many of my fellow Tigers, I have been weighing taking a leave of absence against doing Princeton online. One of the biggest factors in my decision has been whether a vaccine will emerge. Until recently I was hopeful. Now, I am less sure.
