Princeton’s anomalous level of enrollment: Unpacking this statistic

“I believe that Princeton’s relatively steady enrollment this past year is closely tied to the immense privilege of receiving a Princeton education. That students can decide in tough times that the exorbitant cost of a Princeton education is still worth it, or perhaps that students do not even have to ask themselves this question, illustrates how precious our education really is.”

How we can learn from the Michigan shooting to age responsibly

“We must age responsibly and not let the apathy of adulthood pervade our commitment to protecting the next generation of Americans; this is a commitment that may take form in attending more gun control rallies, engaging with local politicians in support of gun reform, or simply maintaining our rage at the continuity of gun violence in our country and empathy for its young victims.”

On loss, grief, and not being okay: The toxic ‘constant productivity’ mindset at Princeton
