Where can I get spicy food in Princeton?

I quickly realized that if I wanted spice, I needed to find it myself — and I’m proud to report that through extensive research and investigation, I have developed a list of restaurants with cheap, tasty, and (most importantly) spicy meals that you can swing by in between classes, after a long week of papers and p-sets, or even on dates!

A guide to Princeton's night sky

As the days warm up, the nights are becoming less intolerably freezing, so take advantage of the start of spring by heading out for some stargazing next time the skies are clear.

Five ways to disrupt the monotony of Zoom University

Online school has encouraged a single focus on just being a student, with little motivation for any other activities. However, rather than falling back on the age-old habit of starting a new Netflix binge, I suggest that we all explore the idea of the “Five Hobbies.”

Sexpert: What you should know about menstrual cups

Menstrual cups are a great alternative to pads and tampons and definitely worth trying out if you think they might be right for you! Not only are they more sustainable, but they can also be a super cost-effective option, compared to pads and tampons. If you take advantage of the campus initiative, your cup will be free and could last you up to five years with proper cleaning and care!

Stuck on studying? Try these playlists

Midterms are over, and the snow is melting, but as you break out the spring clothes, you’re probably realizing that you have weeks of tough course loads ahead of you before summer hits. As you gear up for the rest of the semester, consider trying out some fresh study music to get you through those late-night essays and endless problem sets.

We tried ice cream from 3 different shops so you don't have to

I sampled ice cream from three establishments in town: Halo Pub, Bent Spoon, and Thomas Sweet. At each location, I got a small vanilla scoop in a cup, just to be sure I was making a fair comparison. But, of course, every shop has its own specialties, so I also asked the staff about their favorite flavors. Along with my reviews you can find other recommendations for inside scoops and specialties!

We tried boba from Junbi so you don't have to

Our first round of boba reviews was released right as the mega matcha chain Junbi was opening a new location on Witherspoon. Without Junbi, it seems, our comparison of Princeton’s boba was lacking. So as soon as midterms were over, I hopped right on over to the new shop to try their boba for myself, and here are my thoughts!

We tried 4 boba places in Princeton so you don’t have to

I sampled boba from four establishments right on Nassau: Fruity Yogurt & Cafe, Kung Fu Tea, Korean Barbeque Grill (KBG), and Ficus. At each location, I got a standard milk tea with tapioca pearls so I could be sure I was making a fair comparison. Read the reviews for inside scoops and specialties!

For COVID-19-safe food, Campus Dining undergoes a shift

The return of over 2,000 students this spring has posed a tough task for Campus Dining, as dining halls had to be de-densified and service pared back to quickly process students through serveries. Senior writer Jack Allen speaks to Smitha Haneef, Assistant Vice President for University Services — as well as a few students — about how the University has handled the challenge.
