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.

50 years of women: Susan Belman ’73 and Cassandra James ’23

In 1969, a group of female undergraduates arrived on Princeton’s campus. In 1973, they became the first women to graduate from the University. This is the first installation in a series commemorating 50 years of women at Princeton; each article will chronicle the experience of one woman from the Class of 1973 and one from the Class of 2023.

‘Building Monsters’: Football, food, and fitness at Princeton

On Princeton’s biggest eaters sweatshirts, sweatpants, backpacks, and hats are emblazoned two words: Princeton Football. Football players commit themselves to the team’s grueling practice and game schedule; they are expected as well to change their bodies for the good of the game. How do Princeton’s football players manage to pack on the pounds without sacrificing the fitness and dexterity that allowed them to play at the University in the first place?

‘Preparing for the battlefield’: Athletics and leadership in ROTC

They woke up as first-years and seniors, history majors and engineers, Oklahomans and Connecticut natives. They pulled on standard-issue shirts, shorts, socks, strapped on their running watches. Some of them double-checked to make sure their shaves were clean. And somewhere in the walk from each of their dorms to Jadwin Gym, that group of individual students became something else entirely: a platoon of Army cadets.

"Brotherhood": Scenes from the stands at Yankee Stadium

If the hundreds of students who flocked to Saturday’s game at Yankee Stadium did so to escape the routine of campus life, the hundreds of former football players who made the trip did so to relive it. They brought with them wives, husbands, children, grandchildren, friends — all of whom spent the day celebrating what former captain and nose guard Jeff Urbany ’84 called the “unbelievable brotherhood” that is Princeton football.
