A new Street: a suggestion for expanding the Carl A. Fields Center

With esteemed alumna Mellody Hobson ’91 giving the University a major gift, there will be a new residential college built where First College (formerly known as Wilson College) stands. The next steps to this process, however, should include changes that affect the dynamics of the University on both a micro and macro level. One step that can be taken from here is to focus on creating more spaces on campus that highlight diversity.

More than just a time difference: Reflections of an international student

Yes, we are international: that’s the label that we’re given for coming from opposite ends of the world. But before that, we’re simply students. Our passports might say South Korea, Brazil, or Kenya, but we all, including American students, applied to Princeton and rejoiced when we got in. We went through the same standardized exams and teenage melodrama, and still struggle through the same problem sets and cry through our papers. We are no different, and we deserve to be prioritized in the same way that students are.

Attention and intentionality in the digital space

Our relationships in and beyond the classroom are undeniably central to the quality of our learning. And while it will surprise no one that virtual Princeton is markedly different from physical Princeton, the potentially damaging impact of online learning on our way of engaging with each other should alarm us. Knowing this — and knowing what lies immediately ahead — we should fight to mitigate the effects of these phenomena.

Locked out of the voting booth

People in prison are counted in the census in the places where they are incarcerated, but not in their home areas. This means that less resources go to their home communities, and more resources go to the location of their prison. Thus, incarcerated people are counted, but denied a voice; they are exploited for everyone’s political gain except their own.
