Introducing Reactions: Opinion’s snappy and succinct mini-columns

After major scoops and stories on campus, Reactions will host a series of snappy, prompt, roughly 250-word pieces, staking out different points of view. These mini-columns can engage with each other directly, explore different sides of the issue at hand, and — importantly — prioritize timeliness.

Princeton academics needs a stronger core

“The U.S. News & World Report measures how well students learn; it doesn’t measure whether students are learning the right things. Princeton has no doubt expended significant resources to earn its place on the U.S. News & World Report, but if we actually want to be the ‘best university,‘ it’s important to make sure our curriculum is as good as our academic environment.”
