Letter to the Editor

Standing behind a protestor wearing a green work vest, a keffiyeh, and holding a Palestinian flag, a man wraps himself in an Israeli flag on the steps in front of Nassau Hall.

Letter to the Editor: I am the man who stood wrapped in an Israeli flag, and this is why

“This is the nature of the freedom of speech — the ability to talk, to protest — even if it is uncomfortable to some people. This is a sacred right, and for this reason it should have limits.”

Letter to the Editor: Equality of ends is not a worthy goal

But even the project of trying to make Princeton students more “humble” insinuates an agenda of equal ends, which under the most charitable reading, is an outlandish impossibility. At worst, it is poisonous.

A stone sign engraved with "The Princeton Cemetery of Nassau Presbyterian Church" in front of a background of green grass and leafy green trees. Two American flags stand before the sign.

Letter to the Editor: A cemetery is not an attraction

"But Princeton Cemetery is like a church to me and others, a place where I often go to talk to and pray for my dearly departed son. No matter whom the USG will hire to stage the tour, there is something unseemly about a potential commercial tour for 25 University students amusing themselves in the dark by searching for “ghosts” with flashlights in a hallowed local place."

A view of a stone arch. The arch, surrounding trees, and sky are reflected in a puddle on the ground.

Letter to the Editor: Tired tropes add nothing new to campus free speech discourse

“This campus climate — where students’ political leanings largely determine whether they feel comfortable expressing themselves — is what is truly ‘toxic and polarizing.’”

Letter to the Editor: Robust sexual misconduct response program offers support and options for students

“University systems are always a work in progress, and over time, the sexual misconduct response program has benefited from student interest, including that of Women in STEM, PIXR, and the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) and Graduate Student Government (GSG).”

Letter to the Editor: Eisgruber's administration has quietly eviscerated the free speech rule

“Eisgruber left the Minter letter-ruling in place, saying nothing for months about mounting criticisms by national free speech groups and others, including PFS, of his administration’s treatment of Katz.”

Letter to the Editor: Calling all candidates, USG wants you!

“USG is open to any and all students — it is not only for SPIA or politics majors. USG aims to represent the entire undergraduate student body; it needs your unique, diverse perspectives.”

Letter to the Editor: ORL's calendar seeks to make room for all

“Like many places, the greatest disagreements about the practice of religion at Princeton are usually intra-religious rather than inter-religious; we are most passionate about those things to which we have the greatest commitment.”

Letter to the Editor: Art in my classroom is not a ‘tool’

“None of the art that these artists produced, or that of the dozens of others I featured in my course, were intended to “provoke a reaction” or be used as “tools,” as The Daily Princetonian Editorial Board would have it.”

Community Action Trip to PBC

Letter to the Editor: Princeton-Blairstown Center prioritizes community building in CA

“While service has always been integral to the CA orientation week, it has purposefully taken a back seat to community building. PBC’s ropes and challenge course activities, canoeing, problem-solving initiatives, and hikes are intentionally designed to build strong, lasting CA group relationships and bonds.”
