Black voices: Then, now, and forever

“This issue is a celebration of Black Princeton: of Black joy, of Black history, of Black activism, of Black culture, of Black art. It celebrates Black Princetonians on a normal week in December. It doesn’t seek validation during a heritage month, on a holiday, or anniversary. It just is.”

On academic standards and mental health

“We should bear in mind why Princeton and its peer institutions create challenging, high-aspiration academic programs for their students. Our goal is to provide students with the intellectual and personal foundations for a lifetime of rewarding engagement.”

How Firestone exploited Liberia — and made Princeton as we know it

“Princeton’s Library propagandizes the Firestone Company. It serves a corporation that has, for nearly a century, oppressed Black laborers in the West African nation of Liberia.”

Your rhetoric is killing trans people

“Transitioning isn’t pretty. It’s intensely terrifying to step into the shoes of the person you’ve always wanted to be when part of you wants to stay in the worn-but-comfortable pair you’ve always had.”

The state of conservatism on campus

“Why are the topics of interest in the Tory and other other conservative groups on campus so uniform? The answer does not lie with a lack of diversity, but instead in intellectual laziness.”

Sidechat and Fizz show us why we need to take control of our social media use

“The rampant adoption of these platforms highlights a need for people to be cautious before diving headfirst into any new technology, especially given these apps’ concerning new marketing tactics and their highly anonymous, hollowed-out form of social connection.”

As Princeton looks to the future, current students are deprioritized

“In the process of transforming campus to align with its future expansion goals, Princeton is actually making things worse for its current occupants. True adherence to its campus mobility principles would mean that the University prioritizes a usable campus for its current residents, not just future students.”

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.”

Center for Jewish Life

With antisemitism on the rise, Princeton is not immune

“Princeton hosts a large and vibrant Jewish community. The entire campus has a responsibility to protect these students — not to invalidate their experiences by turning consequential threats of violence into an Instagram meme.”

The n-word is not your educational tool

“There is no good reason for a white professor to use the n-word in the classroom. Time and time again, student experiences have shown that there is no educational or truth-seeking value gained from actively hearing hate speech.”

When it comes to students’ lack of service, we have only ourselves to blame

“There’s no scarcity of resources, service opportunities, or even time among students at Princeton. In thinking about students’ lack of service, we have only ourselves to blame.”

Eisgruber won't sacrifice academic rigor for mental health. Students aren't getting either.

“The problem with Eisgruber’s logic isn’t that Princeton students don’t sympathize with the fear of academic mediocrity. It’s that we feel it deeply.”

Why are Freshman Seminars not automatically PDF’d?

“Automatically PDF-ing freshman seminars would lower stress levels for first-years as they transition into the notoriously rigorous academic environment that Princeton boasts. PDF-only freshman seminars would not be an extra burden on top of that overwhelming stress, but rather, a way to understand and appreciate the beauty of learning.”
