The world we live in is undoubtedly changing in various facets day by day, and how we socialize and connect with our communities is no exception. For at least some Princeton students, TikTok is taking on an increasingly prominent part of their social lives as our campus community is spread out across the world.
The quarantine has taught us many, many things. Like working from home isn’t as cool as it seems. Or that Animal Crossing is apparently still a thing.
