Working towards an inclusive ‘Prince’ and an accessible Princeton

On this International Day of People with Disabilities, I want to commend both the ‘Prince’ and Princeton for becoming better places for disabled students throughout my four years here. I look forward to seeing Princeton continue to improve access and inclusion, and I know the ‘Prince’ will be waiting to document these changes.

Gaslight, gatekeep: Creative writing at Princeton

“The Program in Creative Writing still requires applications for all of its classes, including introductory ones, and most of the literary publications on campus require applications as well. There is also this stark white reality, both figuratively and often demographically: creative writing at Princeton is pretentious and centered on ways of writing that descend from Western ‘high art’ traditions construed as objectively superior to all other forms.”

Princeton’s COVID-19 communications are dangerously ambiguous

“For the sake of public health, the University must be precise in its communications, and [the recent communications on updated COVID-19 policies are] only the latest example of its failure on that front — a failure which ultimately harms students.”

We tried hot cocoa from 6 places in Princeton, so you don't have to

I sampled hot cocoa from six establishments in town: Small World Coffee, Halo Pub, The Bent Spoon, Starbucks, PJ’s Pancake House, and Milk & Cookies. I was shocked to find so many places serving this chocolaty treat. Every time I thought I had tried it all, I found more shops to explore! Now that winter is right around the corner, I recommend you all go out and get a steamy cup of cocoa to warm up.

‘Every good night ends at Wawa’: New Jersey chain battles to keep late-night student cravings at bay

For many Princeton students, Wawa is more than just the location of a late-night snack run. It’s a staple of the Princeton night-life — a place to go after a night out on the Street or in Firestone library. As the ongoing pandemic causes other late-night campus dining options to shutter their doors, Wawa alone offers satiation to midnight hunger pangs.
