Rethinking community: How student organizations are coping off-campus

All clubs, all extracurriculars, have had to adjust not only their meetings and projects to make them possible remotely.

A season, lost: Princeton athletes reflect on cancellation of collegiate sports

The life of a Division I athlete is one of rigor and routine. Preseason. Competition season. Postseason. Repeat. The goal of a Division I athlete is to be game-ready, race-ready, match-ready by the time the season’s first whistle blows — and to be even better by the time the season’s last buzzer sounds. Two tweets in 25 hours and 18 minutes upended the rhythms, the lifestyles, and the dreams of 20 teams.

‘Anything to not go home’: Forced out by COVID-19, some students face unsafe conditions

Are they laying eggs? Then arrived the COVID-19 pandemic. And suddenly — like arts performances, like campus traffic, like study abroad programs — Lazarevic’s work came to a full stop.

Faith, family, and tech startups on Princeton’s first international Tiger Trek

It took them 18 months and surprisingly few obstacles. By intersession 2020, they’d pieced together Princeton’s first international Tiger Trek, modeled off of pre-existing New York City and Silicon Valley Tiger Treks. The weeklong trip offered 18 students and two chaperones the opportunity to travel to Israel in an attempt to understand how the country’s political climate, culture, and other institutions contribute to creating such an expansive tech ecosystem in such a small space.
