The U.S. Government has agreed to rescind a July 6 Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) rule that may have barred international students with online course loads from remaining in country.
When I initially learned that seniors were not going back in the fall, I felt upset. But, as I began to process the decisions that came out July 6 and how they would affect us all differently, I realized I must be mindful of our classmates in less fortunate positions. If Princeton is truly our home, we must share it with those who have nowhere else to go.
We, the undersigned students and alumni of the Princeton Department of Classics and Program in Linguistics, unequivocally denounce “A Declaration of Independence by a Princeton Professor,” written by professor of classics Joshua T. Katz. We condemn its demonization of student organizers, its belittlement of faculty members in their support of anti-racism, and its flippant dismissal of efforts to combat systemic racism at Princeton while minimizing the very presence of that racism itself.
Powerful protests for racial justice and political change have taken our nation by storm. After many years of hard work and slow change, our world has shifted decades’ worth in days. Though the direction of this change is positive, with it comes a dangerous rise in illiberal attitudes, which has become apparent in the practice of smear-mongering.
The eating clubs of Princeton have a long and convoluted history. On July 3, we commemorated the 30-year anniversary of the official New Jersey Supreme Court ruling that mandated coeducation for eating clubs that had not yet adopted the policy.

Five days after its publication, President Christopher Eisgruber ’83 joined a growing chorus of faculty, students, and alumni in publicly condemning professor Joshua Katz for a column in which he characterized the Black Justice League (BJL), a student activist group, as a “terrorist organization.”
On July 6, we received news describing Princeton’s plans for inviting incoming freshmen and rising juniors to campus this fall. As international first-years, we are excited at the prospect of being able to go to campus and connect with the vibrant Princeton community. Due to the present situation, though, several questions and concerns have been raised by the incoming cohort of international students.
“The man who has no sense of history, is like a man who has no ears or eyes,” Adolf Hitler once said.
Picture this: you open your latest email from a Princeton account, and you see a fellow student has chosen to address your entire residential college. The topic, this time, is academic standards; the email says the University hasn't held up its end of the bargain, so we are no longer bound, as fundamentalists by scripture, to its outdated, Boomer ethics! The email inquires what is so bad about plagiarism in the end? Of course, such a message has not been distributed among us undergrads. But if we were to receive such an email, there would be a common understanding that its contents are incompatible with how we are taught to carry ourselves and even to think as students in good standing at an elite university. The same is not the case, however, for something as simple as affirming the equality and humanity of all in our class.
A number of prominent University faculty members and alumni were among the 153 artists, writers, and scholars who signed an open letter “on justice and open debate,” published in Harper’s Magazine on Tuesday, July 7.
On Monday, July 6, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued unnerving new guidelines regarding international student visas: if the student takes an entirely online course load, the student must either “depart the country or transfer to another university that can offer in-person instruction.” This statement is detrimental to our community of international students, who play a big part in making Princeton a unique and diverse university.
In his recent opinion piece, in the wake of years of discourse on the legacy of Woodrow Wilson Class of 1879 — discourse that has suffered from the charge, incessantly levied by those in positions of power, that it must justify over and over again its very existence — Akhil Rajasekar ’21 paints a picture of what he, on behalf of the Princeton Open Campus Coalition (POCC), believes to be the state of free speech on campus. From his perspective, the picture is bleak. He assures us, however, that with the aid of POCC’s efforts we can achieve what he says we need: a “thoughtful conversation … on significant, deeply personal issues like race, identity, and culture.”
A statement from the Princeton Filipino Community and the broader Fil-Am student community calling for democratic civil liberties in the Philippines.
Last month, University President Christopher Eisgruber ’83 issued a charge to University leadership to “specify a set of actions that could be taken” to “identify, understand, and combat systemic racism within and beyond the University.” He asked University leaders to investigate “[w]hat should Princeton University do to more effectively stand against racism and for equality and justice?” In closing his call to action, President Eisgruber tasked the entire Princeton community — students, faculty, staff, and alumni — to confront the “realities and legacy of racism.” Already, the University has made progress toward confronting its own legacy of racism by removing Woodrow Wilson’s name from the public policy school and the residential college.
The University will file an amicus brief in the lawsuit brought today by Harvard and MIT against the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), President Christopher Eisgruber ’83 wrote in an email to the campus community on Wednesday.
Two days before she won the Democratic primary for New Jersey’s 12th District, Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.) accused her challenger, Lisa McCormick, of “offensive, improper, and potentially illegal campaign tactics” as part of a “conspiracy to deceive the public.”
