My first memories of Princeton are the awe and pride I felt when I first gazed up at the Hogwarts-style turrets flanking Blair Arch; the muggy, swamp-like air of the final days of summer that made walking feel like wading through a swamp; the utter fear and excitement of entering the Rocky dining hall with a plate of D-hall food for the first time, alone.
The Super Bowl is over, basketball and hockey are in their mid-season lulls, and baseball has yet to begin. You might now find yourself lamenting the temporary lack of excitement in your sporting world. Well, if you shift your attention across the Atlantic, you can plunge yourself into a sports world so intense, captivating, and all-encompassing you’ll wonder how you spent your whole life until that point oblivious to its existence.

It has taught me that there is more to life than charging towards achievement after achievement, that I should take time to smell the flowers, or order the açaí bowl.
Dear Sexpert, Like most college students, I spend most of my day on my laptop, working on assignments or watching Netflix in bed. I recently read on a men’s health website that using your laptop on your lap can damage sperm production in the future. I’m obviously not planning on having kids now, but if I keep using my laptop on my lap, will there be any long-term damage down there? Sincerely, Testicularly Concerned
