What ‘party culture’ reveals about our mental health

“The intensity of life at Princeton and relative isolation of campus can be stifling, and it may feel that the only escape is a pregame or a night out. However, if students and the University do more to prioritize well-being, it doesn’t have to be that way.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic, the limitations that students face this semester, and grief have fundamentally compromised learning.

In virtual semester, community building requires a new approach

“On a campus that can feel so isolating, it’s worth remembering that many of us are mere minutes away from each other. We can create a campus community if we make the effort, and we owe it to each other to do so.”
