Nassau Hall evening - Abby de Riel 2.JPG

Princeton is, and may forever be, a Predominantly White Institution

“The composition of Princeton’s faculty, the history of the institution, and the culture of the school contribute to the sense that Princeton not only has been, but most certainly still is a PWI.”

Our lives here don't have to feel boring

“At Princeton, it is necessary to experience actively and not — as that visiting friend said — take the positives of campus for granted simply because we know them well. In the two years that my classmates and I have left, we must reacquaint ourselves with our campus and appreciate the old in a new light.”

Take it from me: No student government experience is necessary to run for USG

“If I’ve learned one thing, it’s that every student is qualified to run for a position on USG by virtue of their lived experience of being an undergraduate at Princeton.”

Let’s rethink Princeton’s residential college placement

“The random nature of residential college placement is one of its greatest flaws. I have yet to meet a person who feels they belong to their residential college as much as they belong to other campus groups.”

An open letter calling on Princeton to accept the Duolingo English Test as part of international application process

“Princeton has made the application process more just and accessible in many ways, from the new Financial Aid policy to offering application cost waivers to low-income applicants. Yet, it still requires internationals to take extremely overpriced tests to prove their English proficiency.”

Princeton does nowhere near enough to help grieving students

“Princeton does nowhere near enough to help the students and community members affected. As I learned in the days following Abe’s death, recovering from such a loss is a long and difficult process and can’t be solved by Princeton’s perfunctory acknowledgements.”

In Georgia’s moment of vulnerability, the US should step up engagement

“In this moment of vulnerability, Georgians are right to question whether Europe and the United States will really commit to the country’s security and Euro-Atlantic ambitions.”

Letter to the Editor: Identity politics can't mask the real problems inside the School of Architecture

“Even worse than ‘cancellation,’ these accusations of ‘patriarchy’ and ‘bigotry’ are a classic example of witch hunting, a procedure customarily used by authoritarian regimes to suppress dissent and legitimize repression, or worse.”

Reactions: What would you change about Princeton?

“In 2021, then-Editor-in-Chief Emma Treadway challenged the student body to take the post-pandemic opportunity to change Princeton. As a new school year starts, we asked our columnists one thing they’d want to change, big or small, about Princeton in the coming year.”

Hawaiian Flag, Hawaii

Hawaiʻi is not and will never be your vacation ‘paradise’

“About 10 million people visit Hawaiʻi each year. That’s more than seven times Hawaiʻi's entire residential population. This is not sustainable: non-Native people need to stop coming to Hawaiʻi.”
