The art of looking up

“It feels whimsical, indulgent almost, to tell people I want to spend this era of my youth studying the stars. However, I think there is something fundamentally grounding about the field — it seems significantly removed from human-scale worries.” Prospect Staff Writer Paige Cromley reflects on declaring as an Astrophysics major and the grounding experience of stargazing.

We tried hot cocoa from 6 places in Princeton, so you don't have to

I sampled hot cocoa from six establishments in town: Small World Coffee, Halo Pub, The Bent Spoon, Starbucks, PJ’s Pancake House, and Milk & Cookies. I was shocked to find so many places serving this chocolaty treat. Every time I thought I had tried it all, I found more shops to explore! Now that winter is right around the corner, I recommend you all go out and get a steamy cup of cocoa to warm up.

Can't bring back the past? Of course we can: a Roaring 20s ball for the Classes of the 2020s

From fake pearls to 1920s-themed appetizers, Princeton’s “Roaring Twenties'' themed Orange and Black Ball on Nov. 4th  was filled with all the glitz and glam that many students missed coming out of a global pandemic. Despite the difficulties the OBB’s date presented for some students — who celebrated the Hindu religious festival Diwali on that night — the ball allegedly saw an attendance increase of about 500 students since the last time it was held two years ago.
