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.”

The suspension of research, study abroad damages cross-cultural exchange during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although disappointing for countless Princeton students, the cancellation of abroad programs also has broader implications rooted in the international community’s reaction to the pandemic. Research and study abroad programs (rightfully) have been suspended at a time when the world stands to benefit from their capacity of strengthening soft ties between countries and cultures.

U.S. Marshallese are among the hardest hit by COVID-19. It’s time to give a damn.

Many Americans, including Princeton students, are unaware of the Marshallese’s plight. As a group with disproportionally high rates of certain chronic conditions, access to Medicare and Medicaid could mean the difference between life and death even during regular times. During a pandemic, restricting Marshallese access to those programs is tantamount to condoning murder.
