From performance to non-profit: Camryn Stafford ’23 and the Turning Tables Project

In her sophomore year of high school, Camryn Stafford ‘23 had the idea for the Turning Tables project as a way to address the racial inequities she observed in the dance world. What started as a one-off dance show has since grown into a recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization working to increase visibility and resources for dancers of color.

eXpressions Dance Company’s ‘Notorious’ showcases multiple dimensions of artistry

The modern and contemporary-focused company not only experimented with musical textures but also explored the poetic elements of dance, such as the intentional repetition of movement and the contrast of continuity with dynamism.

Princeton must implement further restrictions to mitigate COVID-19 spread

“To mitigate the spread of the virus, Princeton must take further action, including transitioning to entirely grab-and-go dining, making all finals take-home, and mandating the booster shot.”

USG Council members vote to confirm new committee members.
Caroline Shückel / The Daily Princetonian

Student apathy towards USG has real consequences

“The senate [has] the power to make the University a better place in some ways. But in order to have the greatest impact, students must understand what USG can actually do and elect candidates who have a history of making progress on those issues.”

Lovejoy returns with EP “Pebble Brain”

“Lovejoy’s newest EP, ‘Pebble Brain,’ follows the same high-energy pop-punk-rock formula that carried ‘Are You Alright?’ to Spotify’s ‘Viral Hits’ playlist. Overall, I’m impressed with it, especially considering that Soot isn’t a professional vocalist. The lyrics might be confusing to many, but their vagueness is their strength: depending on the listener’s interpretation, they can have implications on the personal, political, or societal level.”

COVID-19 is here forever: Princeton’s administration needs to start acting like it

“Short of living like hermits, many epidemiologists agree that most of us will likely get some variant or another of COVID-19 at least once in our lifetimes. As such, there is no cogent reason for the University to continue imposing heavy-handed ‘emergency measures.’”

With warm popcorn and James Bond, a Princeton institution reopens after pandemic closure

“Today, the Garden Theatre is known as a community gem, a town cultural hub, and an oasis for the weary Princeton student. The theatre has kept its doors open for the past century thanks to the resolve of community members who kept it afloat through various ups and downs — most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic.”
