On loss, grief, and not being okay: The toxic ‘constant productivity’ mindset at Princeton

“When we tell others that ‘it’s okay to not be okay,‘ we must take care to understand that grief has no deadlines, no time limits, and no regard for productivity. We must challenge the toxic Princeton culture of ‘powering through’ pain, and instead learn to give ourselves a chance to heal from the pain which left us not okay in the first place.”

Why Princeton must include Divest Princeton members in fossil fuel divestment deliberations

“There are no students participating in the deliberations on divestment happening within the Administrative Committee and the Faculty Panel on Dissociation. The young people whose lives are at stake — and whose lives are actively being harmed by Princeton’s continued delay of necessary climate action — do not have a seat at the table.”

Princeton’s queer community is often biphobic and transphobic. Where do we go from here?

“In spaces that are markedly progressive and accepting, gatekeeping of queerness is unacceptable. As Princeton students — whether queer or allies — we must foster a safe and accepting community for people of all identities, rather than contributing to the self-doubt and isolation one already often experiences as part of the LGBTQIA+ community.”

The privilege of indifference: Commonalities between national forest management and Divest Princeton

“Our leaders, whether USDA officials, or legislators, or Trustees at Princeton, must listen to those most affected. Our leaders must listen to those in frontline communities where severe and disproportionate impacts of climate change are already being felt.”

Blue-green algae in the Finger Lakes: A problem the ‘Orange Bubble’ should care about

“The impacts of climate change are not isolated, one-off events. They are not limited to hurricanes in the Gulf, or wildfires in the West, or melting ice caps in the Arctic. Climate change is not some distant, imminent issue that our grandchildren will have to live with. Climate change is an issue that requires urgent, immediate action.”

Will Princeton continue to attract ‘the best and the brightest’?

“By seriously addressing the concerns of its students regarding  climate change, Princeton would greatly increase its appeal to deliberating high school seniors, who might have offers of admission from other universities like Columbia and Brown, which have both already divested from fossil fuels.”

As we celebrate women’s history, let us push for a better future for women at Princeton

“In order to better represent what it means to be a woman at Princeton in 2021, I interviewed female undergraduates about their experiences with gender at Princeton.”

Divestment is a matter of racial justice

“Though much has changed since Princeton’s early years, the University remains complicit in the systemic racial injustices faced by communities of color so long as it continues to invest in the fossil fuel industry.”

Mental health must be a priority this semester

In a normal year, balancing mental health with Princeton’s rigorous academic demands, intense social culture, and competitive extracurriculars can be challenging. On top of that, the added health, financial, familial, and social stressors that accompany living through what is so often referred to as “unprecedented times” can exacerbate struggles with mental health.
