For many Princeton students, Wawa is more than just the location of a late-night snack run. It’s a staple of the Princeton night-life — a place to go after a night out on the Street or in Firestone library. As the ongoing pandemic causes other late-night campus dining options to shutter their doors, Wawa alone offers satiation to midnight hunger pangs.

Princeton parents are active on their Facebook page. Their children? Less than thrilled about it.

Many Princeton parents turn to Facebook, specifically the Princeton Parents Page, to keep in touch with their children’s lives and stay up to date on campus news. While some parents find it a helpful forum to share concerns, announce student accomplishments, and exchange advice, students express concerns about the group’s limited scope of discussions and encroachment on student privacy.

‘Anyone, anywhere can tell a story’: Rev. Dean Theresa Thames on storytelling, community, and rap aspirations

Reverend Theresa Thames, Associate Dean of Religious Life and of the Chapel, is known for bringing compassion and humor to her work at the University. A self-proclaimed storyteller, she shared her experiences bringing people together before and during the pandemic, and how she navigates being “unapologetically feminist and black and queer” in the church. And she’s not stopping there: she’s also an aspiring rapper, barber, and social media influencer.

Princeton faculty, students with unvaccinated children prepare for an uncertain fall

“On the one hand, I’m really happy because I miss teaching in-person,” Alberto Bruzos Moro told The Daily Princetonian. “On the other hand, I’m worried because, you know, having a kid at home who is immunocompromised, it is a little concerning. At least until he can get the vaccine.”

On Princeton’s campus, Alberto Bruzos Moro is the director of the Spanish language program, slated to teach two seminars this fall. Off campus, he’s a father to an immunocompromised nine-year-old son.

Despite isolating conditions, Princeton’s Jewish community connects through prayer, celebration, and tradition

Adapting to the pandemic online stretched all of Princeton’s academic, social, and religious communities, and Princeton’s Jewish community faced its own unique set of challenges. From keeping kosher in quarantine to adapting traditions that require the physical presence of others, the CJL and its student leaders had to adjust how they supported the Jewish community on campus and how they approached building this community in the first place.

‘I don’t understand who they’re protecting here’: Princeton’s COVID-19 policy frustrated reporting of sexual misconduct allegations, say students

This past semester, one student’s experience shows how the University’s Social Contract, a series of coronavirus-related restrictions, hindered reporting of an alleged incident of sexual misconduct. While some peer institutions offered amnesty to victims, University policy did not offer such protections, despite warnings as early as summer 2020 from campus resources. This story illustrates the unintended — but not unanticipated — effects the policy had on students. “I just feel like the University did everything wrong,” one student told the ‘Prince.’

When the ‘really easy and fun parts of Princeton disappear’: A student mental health crisis and Princeton’s response

Princeton prides itself on its high academic standards, and even in a normal year, some students have difficulty managing these expectations while taking care of their mental health. But this semester, students experienced these challenges on a much more universal scale. Undergraduates and administrators reflect on what intensified mental health struggles this past semester, how students navigated those struggles, and how the University responded.

One year later, the Class of 2020 reflects on virtual commencement

Faced with dire circumstances near the start of the pandemic, the University opted for a live-streamed virtual graduation celebration for the Class of 2020, postponing the class’ more traditional in-person ceremony to 2021. But in February this year, the University reversed course and canceled the event altogether. One year later, the Class of 2020 reflects on their virtual commencement.

This semester, Business Ethics teaches another lesson: how to succeed at hybrid learning

Professor David Miller's class, EGR 219: Business Ethics — Succeeding without Selling Your Soul, is one of fifteen courses to have adopted a hybrid format this semester. It's far from perfect, but students agree this special class is worth the extra effort. “Gee, if we're part of the Keller Center and we're all about innovation, I might as well innovate," Miller said.

Despite a pandemic, Princeton Birding Society spreads its wings

This Earth Day, the ‘Prince’ sat down with members of the Princeton Birding Society, a group of students dedicated to ornithological education, conservation efforts, and the practice of birding. “Birding is a really unique intersection of what some might see as a hobby that's actually fueling really important discoveries about bird ecology and evolution,” said Cassie Stoddard, faculty advisor to PBS.
