Mourning Queen Elizabeth II isn't about romanticizing the past. It's about national continuity, laws, and history.

“Despite her advanced age of 96 years, her long reign and constant presence in public life — she had just appointed her 15th prime minister two days before — made her departure feel sudden and unexpected. Her passing prompted mourning in Britain, the Commonwealth, and worldwide.”

Murray-Dodge in shadow

This Office of Religious Life program is failing to include Jewish students. That needs to change.

“Even the Office of Religious Life, which is supposedly meant to serve as a haven for students of all religions, consistently fails to provide for the religious needs of Jewish students.”

Pete Carril’s passing led me to dust off my senior thesis

“While many respect the Princeton offense as a way of playing basketball, it has much deeper resonance: its tenets of a focus on individuals, empathy and trust are the bases of all good organizations.”

The fossil fuel faculty report is just another stalling tactic. We need divestment now.

“Princeton needs to divest its endowment and research funding from fossil fuels fully and immediately if it wants to retain its credibility and live up to its values of public service.”

Firestone Library in the fall

It's time to reopen University facilities to visitors

“What led University officials to judge that the crowds of Reunions were an acceptable risk, while a few extra researchers in the Firestone stacks apparently continue to pose a grave danger? I can’t help but think that the $150 I paid for a Reunions wristband was a contributing factor here.”

We Call BS Rally

4 years later, we are still marching for our lives

“We cannot and must not continue to ignore gun violence. If we are to imagine a more just and equitable world, then we must begin by disarming hate and finally addressing gun violence.”

In defense of The New York Times: A response to Rohit Narayanan ’24

“While it’s true that student activists had little to do with Princeton’s recent decision to fire Katz, as Narayanan alleges, it’s a farce to pretend that the decision was free of political bias.”

I'm a pro-life woman and student at Princeton. Here's where the pro-life movement needs to go next.

“Although overturning Roe, in my opinion, is a move in the right direction, it does not and should not be the end of the pro-life movement’s efforts. We need to support women who become pregnant, so that they are not forced to make a decision that they will regret or that could harm themselves or others.”

Community service at Princeton must move beyond lip service

“For students who do participate in service activities, there is a strong support system for direct community service through the Pace Center for Civic Engagement and its programming. However, there is clearly a disconnect between the center and students that facilitates a leaky pipeline in direct community service participation.”

PSRJ Protest Sign

An open letter from women of Class of ’72 on their classmate Justice Samuel Alito’s leaked reversal of Roe v. Wade

“We are about to celebrate our 50th reunion — half a century since we graduated from Princeton. We find it bitter indeed to see the draft Supreme Court opinion reverse the strides we thought we were making, as part of one of the first classes of Princeton women, towards a world of equity and fairness for women of all races and social and economic positions.”

On the absurdity of ‘deeply rooted’ tradition

“Even when I (correctly) cite the legal precedent of English common law to uphold Roe, I am acquiescing to the premise that our rights depend on the imperfect actions of imperfect people in the past. But, as we know, history cannot show us what justice and equality for Black Americans or LGBTQ+ Americans should look like.”

The Editorial Board should know better than to blame “both sides.” Activism for Palestine lost out.

“It did not hesitate, however, to equate Palestine activists with their opposition in actions for which only the latter are responsible.”

USG has abandoned their democratic principles

“Princeton students are asked to take USG seriously as a truly representative body, but they have now thrown out this legitimacy in favor of appeasing a small, angry group of students. Going forward, it will be on them to earn our trust back and on us to hold them accountable.”

160 Princeton faculty and staff members: The University must fully divest from fossil fuels

“As the world rapidly disengages from carbon-emitting energy sources by clear necessity, we believe it incompatible with the University’s moral principles to seek profit from continued investment in fossil fuels.”

Hobson College is not a milestone for inclusion if its namesake tears down vulnerable workers at Starbucks

“Contrary to official claims, naming our new residential college after Hobson does not address the University’s racist legacy — rather, it obscures the manner in which Hobson and the Starbucks Corporation are perpetuating patterns of racialized exploitation in this country.”
