Gaining 40 pounds and a sense of self

As her term as editor-in-chief approaches its end, Emma Treadway reflects on how she has been challenged and has grown — both physically and mentally — over the years, but especially during her tenure leading the ‘Prince.’

Princeton isn’t fundamentally changing classics. It’s keeping it alive.

“With a more diverse set of students around the table, whether that diversity be in background or in subfield, the classics community will continue to thrive.”

A message of encouragement

In her final letter for the spring semester, editor-in-chief Emma Treadway sends a note of encouragement. She asks, “As future leaders who are working to better the world, what is all that work without empathy and a respect for ourselves and the people we serve?”

Mental health matters. We should act like it.

“I call on each of you — student leaders, professors, parents. Cancel meetings. Roll back expectations for your student organizations. Exempt your students from the final exam. We are people first, students, professors, administrators second. We should praise one another when we hold true to that fact.”

To women and other marginalized voices: be proud to take up space

“To keep speaking loudly and to push back vehemently when your voice is drowned out is commendable. To do so with the grace and poise of the women on this team is extraordinary.”

A welcome to the Class of 2025 from the Editor-in-Chief

Emma Treadway ’22, the 145th Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Princetonian, shares how before she arrived on campus, everyone at Princeton seemed “superhuman, out of reach.” But she soon learned how we’re all just people first and foremost.  “My professors, though brilliant, went home every day to kids and a dog. My classmates, though ambitious, were secretly asking all the same questions about who these people were, and how they could ever fit in.”  This understanding — that behind all stories are people — guides our work at the ‘Prince,’ Treadway writes.  She encourages incoming students to remember our shared humanity as they arrive on campus. “Come tell your story, and help others tell theirs.”
