Our police officers, security officers and dispatchers are all interested in being helpful and serving as a resource for the community.

Rebuttal to Lipkowitz

This piece is a response to an editorial in The Daily Princetonian by Gabe Lipkowitz ’19 entitled “There is no art of science.” I consider Lipkowitz a close friend and recognize that he wishes to promote discussion by deliberately taking a bold stance. But his latest article, in my opinion, takes a stance much closer to ridiculous.

The Daily Princetonian

A ceiling of glass and bamboo

While it is tempting to lump Asian-American women in with either all women or all Asian Americans, this approach is shortsighted. Instead, we need to consider how the stereotype of Asian femininity compounds with the “model minority” myth. The complex interplay of these stereotypes generates unreasonable expectations of extreme compliance and unquestioning service for Asian-American women. And it is these expectations that can severely restrict them from moving forward.

Letter to the Editor: Access to UHS sexual health and wellness services

An opinion column published by The Daily Princetonian on April 23, 2018 drew my attention. As the Director of Medical Services, I agree wholeheartedly with two of the primary points, that “the failure to disseminate knowledge about how such services work only heightens fear and apprehension in the student body,” and that there is always room for improving access to services. Therefore, I felt it important to respond by clearly communicating information about our approach to ensuring ready access to health care and a few of the specific services we offer.

Pooping in the shower is Princeton’s new normal: A letter to the heads of Princeton University

Imagine a crowded living space with bad plumbing, old hallways, and exposed pipes, where toilets overflow and make an unsanitary disaster, where human feces are found in the shower, urine found in trash cans, shower curtains removed as pranks, and then people of color and people of unprivileged socioeconomic backgrounds have to clean it all up. You don’t have to imagine it to believe it. This place exists here at Princeton University, the number one school in the country.

guest sexual misconduct

The role of upperclassmen in sexual misconduct culture

No matter how many people you try to represent or advocate for, you will never be more than one person. Individuals cannot make change alone; groups make change. I changed almost nothing. Now I am a senior. I am leaving. I am exhausted. Yet, for all the people who confided in me, I feel it would be irresponsible not to try one last Hail Mary before I graduate. This is it. I turn to you. I am only one; you could be many.

zoe meal thoughts

Discriminatory meal plan changes under the guise of ‘community engagement’

My phone-typed response soon had the length of an essay, and I’m sharing part of that here. As an engineering major focused on sustainable design, and a health-focused individual who treasures the interpersonal warmth of a great meal, I’ve long taken issue with the required meal plans at this university. The forced predetermination of one’s food and eating place is incomprehensible to my friends and family, in Germany and across the globe.

hidden dining hall

The hidden costs of proposed dining plans

If the Board Plan Review Committee is truly concerned about flexibility, they should not make any meal plan mandatory. Affordability can be addressed by simply increasing the annual stipend or granting more free meal swipes. Quality of life should not be sacrificed for supposed efficiency, which keeps costs down for the University while the most vulnerable student populations.
