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.”

Letter to the Editor: The ‘Prince’ ignored context about my citation of Mixon-Webster’s poem

“While I regret not discussing how we would discuss that word, I maintain that engaging with that poem was a critical part of the class’s pedagogy.”

School of Architecture

Letter to the Editor: Identity politics can't mask the real problems inside the School of Architecture

“Even worse than ‘cancellation,’ these accusations of ‘patriarchy’ and ‘bigotry’ are a classic example of witch hunting, a procedure customarily used by authoritarian regimes to suppress dissent and legitimize repression, or worse.”

Letter to the Editor: Students should remember there are fates worse than the ‘rat race’ for admission to Princeton

“As hard and emotionally painful as it is to get into a college like Princeton, it can be harder and more painful mentally for America’s economically and educationally disadvantaged high school students to realize they will be left behind before that  “rat race” even begins.”

Ken Buck ’81: Princeton students deserve better than cancel culture

“It’s disconcerting that any student at Princeton, much less a politics concentrator, would hold such a narrow view of what is acceptable discourse. The entire purpose of a liberal arts education is to challenge students’ views, expand their intellectual horizons, and to have them engage deeply with conclusions and viewpoints at odds with their own.”

Letter to the Editor: The Office of Religious Life is committed to inclusivity

“Those who speak with us will find that the statement that the ORL is “not for Jews” — or any religious community — is absolutely contrary to the truth.”

Letter to the Editor: The ‘Prince’ should seek out Katz’s defenders, too

From my perspective, characterizing support for Professor Katz as coming from a “handful” of professors or “at least one alumnus” is likely a gross distortion.

Frist Campus Center, a significant hub of social activity on campus.

Letter to the Editor: We object to USG's handling of Referendum No. 3, but condemn attacks on our peers

“As leaders of an objection regarding USG’s management of Referendum No. 3, we strongly and unqualifiedly disavow those who have harassed the Chief Elections Manager, or alleged that he operated in bad faith. His was a simple and honest mistake.”

Letter to the Editor: In defense of jokes — free speech, harm, and the Satire section

“Self-censoring by avoiding contentious topics may help the Satire section avoid controversy, but doing so would be a disservice to the ‘Prince’ readership.”

Letter to the Editor: Princeton’s program for underrepresented students in medicine is a success

“Princeton’s data tells a much more encouraging story about supporting and mentoring students from URiM backgrounds on their way to careers in medicine. Ours is a culture of “lifting up” that extends far beyond the classroom.”

East Pyne

Letter to the Editor: Betting your future on ‘impact’ neglects inherent uncertainty

“I think it would be simpler — and more straightforward — to try to be happy, because you cannot know how your actions will affect other people. You cannot know if something you put into the world will be positive or negative. You can try, you can do your best, but you can never know for sure.”
