What’s a favorite memory from your first year at Princeton?
One of my favorite memories from my first year at Princeton was taking the first half of the Humanities Sequence, where I made one of my best friends and read things I never thought I'd be able to read!

What’s a Princeton class that has shaped the way you think and why?
My freshman seminar, FRS 143: Is Politics a Performance? shaped the way I think as both an artist and an academic. The class focused on theatrical theories and arrangements that manifested in political spaces, and taught me to always question and analyze the physical and structural arrangements of spaces I am in. 

My name is Beth, and I'm an English concentrator in the class of 2024! On campus, I'm involved in cheerleading, student theater, Orange Key, and the Nassau Weekly. I also love to watch movies and cook with my roommates. Please feel free to get in touch with me about any and all things Princeton or NCW-related!
