The use of lowercase lettering in regards to the posters and associated statements of the Women*s Center throughout this articleare intentional, as it is a part of the organization's recent rebranding publicity campaign. You may have noticed the "feminist*" shirts sported by many students on campus recently, or perhaps you saw the posters with assorted critiques of the lack of female leadership especially in certain student groups, including some criticizing The Daily Princetonian for its pattern of male editors-in-chief and others describing the Undergraduate Student Government as an organization "where men are presidents and women are secretaries.” The latter became a topical discussion during the recent USG presidential election.

Question: What group is Princeton’s oldest, youngest and only coed hip-hop and R&B a cappella group? Answer: It’s Off the Record! Founded in the spring of 2011, Off the Record now comprises about 15 members who meet twice a week to rehearse their renditions of everything from Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” to Ariana Grande’s “The Way.” The group features the standard soprano, alto, tenor and bass vocal roles found in most choral groups, but also likes to highlight its rappers and beatboxers. The group was formed to fill a previously unfilled niche in the campus performing arts scene. “As far as I know, [the founders] started out that spring and were kind of frustrated, I guess, about the lack of an outlet for doing R&B and hip-hop performance in singing in general, not even just in a cappella,” Caleb Negash ’15 said.
