Smart students study STEM: Unpacking the myths of Princeton’s academic hierarchy

“It is precisely the weedout culture so widespread in STEM coupled with the intense workload of STEM courses that make many of us perceive STEM as at the top of the academic hierarchy. Because, in all honesty, what social sciences and humanities courses are asking of students is incredibly challenging.”

Princeton, it is time we face our Russophobia

“Just to be clear, I am not by any means defending or advocating for Putin’s Russia as a political entity. I am, however, urging you to consider how Russia’s past shapes your understanding of its present — not just politically, but also culturally.”

Pushkin not Putin: Depoliticizing the Russian language

“As a Russian heritage speaker I firmly believe that the Russian language has value outside of its strategic positioning as the language of the enemy. Russian — just like every other language — is a language of love and dreams, thought and discovery, culture and art, family and friends. It is a language of living, not of fighting.”

Competitive clubs: how Princeton’s selective extracurriculars favor the wealthy

“There is an element of the club application process that requires our attention: much like the college admissions process itself, the club application process at Princeton favors high-income individuals.”

Re-engineering Princeton’s language requirement

“Perhaps one day colleges will reform their curricula to reflect the universal importance of non-English language acquisition in such a way that does not unduly burden B.S.E. students. But until that day, introductory level language courses should count towards B.S.E. humanities and social sciences requirements at Princeton.”

Tigers below their stripes: A call for Princetonians to remember their pre-Princeton mascots

“I increasingly framed my involvement in terms of the University: Aspects of my life ranging from extracurriculars to friendships all are intimately connected to Princeton. Chairing the conference shed light on the fact that the orange bubble is not so much a physical place as it is a mental space. Many of us subconsciously see the world through orange glasses.”

This March 8, celebrate women

“By failing to actively embrace International Women’s Day, the United States is inadvertently excluding itself from a vital celebration of international feminism. Many of the rights American women enjoy today were only extended to women in the United States because of the work of feminists globally.”
