For COVID-19-safe food, Campus Dining undergoes a shift

The return of over 2,000 students this spring has posed a tough task for Campus Dining, as dining halls had to be de-densified and service pared back to quickly process students through serveries. Senior writer Jack Allen speaks to Smitha Haneef, Assistant Vice President for University Services — as well as a few students — about how the University has handled the challenge.

It’s time to get better masks for Princeton students, staff, and community members

Over the past year, the University has proven that it has the resources and logistical skills to operate like a small country during the pandemic. It’s time for campus officials to once again follow the lead of other successful nations and procure better masks for our community.

Joshua Katz allegations: Surprising to no one

Without a restructuring of the very academic world that elevated Katz, dynamics like those recently asserted by some alumni will continue to be perpetuated by a culture that convinces a small group of people that they are above the rest of us.

Ivy League to allow graduate eligibility for current senior athletes

The Ivy League Council of Presidents voted to grant current senior student-athletes an extra year of competitive eligibility if they are accepted to, and enroll at, the graduate school of their current university for the 2021-2022 academic year only. With applications for 2021 admission at Princeton University already closed, it is unclear how much of an impact this new measure will have on Princeton student-athletes.
