Secluded campuses can allow for connection with local communities

“Moving to a shared campus and living among others undergoing the same experience is comforting and is a source of peer support during a time of extreme change.”

Don’t join the Honor Committee

“Students should not be fooled; joining either Committee means participating in the investigation and punishment of one’s peers without due process — and we should simply stop doing so.”

Smart students study STEM: Unpacking the myths of Princeton’s academic hierarchy

“It is precisely the weedout culture so widespread in STEM coupled with the intense workload of STEM courses that make many of us perceive STEM as at the top of the academic hierarchy. Because, in all honesty, what social sciences and humanities courses are asking of students is incredibly challenging.”

Congressman Ken Buck ’81 does not deserve PICS interns

“The way to stop producing alumni like this is to show current Princeton students that their politics do not represent our values, and for us to not support politicians like Buck with our time and talent.”

Changing ‘concentrations’ to ‘majors’ undermines what makes Princeton unique

“Why apply the “major” name to a program that differs significantly from its peers? The words “concentration” and “certificate” simply allowed Princeton students to explain what was so unique about their education compared to those of peers at other universities.“

Growing departmental requirements threaten the liberal arts education

“On its own, increasing requirements by one course may not seem like much, but at a school where students can take a limited number of courses, a single more prescribed course can have a large impact—and the pattern shows that students have less and less freedom as to which courses to choose.”

Mourning Queen Elizabeth II isn't about romanticizing the past. It's about national continuity, laws, and history.

“Despite her advanced age of 96 years, her long reign and constant presence in public life — she had just appointed her 15th prime minister two days before — made her departure feel sudden and unexpected. Her passing prompted mourning in Britain, the Commonwealth, and worldwide.”

Letter to the Editor: The Office of Religious Life is committed to inclusivity

“Those who speak with us will find that the statement that the ORL is “not for Jews” — or any religious community — is absolutely contrary to the truth.”

What the ‘anti-woke’ crowd gets wrong about the calls for diversity in science

“These journals are opening their pages to serious discussion of issues of discrimination and bias in science not necessarily faced by most senior cis-male white scholars — which is a critical component of change.”

Murray-Dodge in shadow

This Office of Religious Life program is failing to include Jewish students. That needs to change.

“Even the Office of Religious Life, which is supposedly meant to serve as a haven for students of all religions, consistently fails to provide for the religious needs of Jewish students.”

Pete Carril’s passing led me to dust off my senior thesis

“While many respect the Princeton offense as a way of playing basketball, it has much deeper resonance: its tenets of a focus on individuals, empathy and trust are the bases of all good organizations.”

An open letter from Indigenous leaders on Princeton’s holdings in lithium mining

“We need your help. Princeton University must divest from Lithium Americas Corporation. To continue to profit from the destruction of land, water, wildlife habitat, and indigenous communities and sacred sites is morally reprehensible.”

GSRC Director: Princeton will handle monkeypox with compassion and without stigma

“As you are undoubtedly aware, monkeypox (MPX) has had a direct impact on queer and trans (QT) communities in our region and around the world, yet this virus is indiscriminate.”

The fossil fuel faculty report is just another stalling tactic. We need divestment now.

“Princeton needs to divest its endowment and research funding from fossil fuels fully and immediately if it wants to retain its credibility and live up to its values of public service.”

Firestone Library in the fall

It's time to reopen University facilities to visitors

“What led University officials to judge that the crowds of Reunions were an acceptable risk, while a few extra researchers in the Firestone stacks apparently continue to pose a grave danger? I can’t help but think that the $150 I paid for a Reunions wristband was a contributing factor here.”
