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!

Why revoking Ted Cruz’s James Madison Award isn’t anti-conservative

“To revoke his JMA for his role in all of this is not anti-conservative, it is for us to say that this sort of conduct is unacceptable for any politician of any party. It is to affirm the principles which bind this nation together.”

Pixar’s “Soul” cannot make up for what it lacks

“It is still immensely disheartening that the second biggest media company in the world has yet to release a full-length animated film where the Black protagonist remains a person for the entire time. Instead, it continues to trade deep portrayals of Black life for bland relatability, failing to recognize that such portrayals would not render characters any less human or likable.”

Ted Cruz ’92 no longer deserves his James Madison Award. But that doesn’t mean he should be stripped of it.

“There is a cautionary tale to be told in the Senator’s JMA, but it is not about those who conferred it. Instead, it is vital that we remember that Cruz legitimately won the JMA not so long before he launched an existential assault on our democracy.”

On Monday, Jan. 25, a play was staged as part of Wintersession with the collaboration of first-year students  in FRS 143: “Is Politics a Performance?” “Democracy Theater — City Council Meeting” was meant to invite reflection on the character of representative democracy and the power imbalance it creates between those who are represented and those who represent them.
