Academics

Academics Committee

Chair: Patrick Flanigan

Email/Contact: phf2@princeton.edu

Description: The Academics Committee is comprised of the Committee and its very important subcommittees on Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid, the Course of Study, and the Honor System. These committees meet regularly and interact with the faculty and administration to help represent the students’ opinions on a range of issues affecting undergraduates. Additionally, the Academics Committee reports annually to the Committee on Examinations and Standing and organizes the Academic Expo in the Fall. The Committee continues to look for new issues and support ongoing initiatives related to the calendar, first-year advising, and other academic issues of importance to the student body.

Monthly Updates: The Academics Committee has been working on several ongoing and new initiatives this year. The committee is committed to supporting equal financial aid for international students and helping shape a calendar and general education requirements that represent the desires of actual Princeton students. Additionally, we are working on an initiative to make semester leaves of absence a realistic possibility for as many Princetonians as possible, since the current curriculum does not easily allow for students to take one semester leaves.

Social

Social Committee

Chair: Lavinia Liang

Email/Contact: lavinial@princeton.edu

Description: Social Committee is the source of all things celebratory, entertainment, and arts through USG. We run Lawnparties, Dean’s Date celebrations, and much more. We work to intensify and increase fun events around Princeton, as well as build visibility for the art and music scenes both on- and off-campus.

Monthly Updates: We started off the school year with a bang – pop artist Tinashe was opened by rapper Awkwafina at Lawnparties at Quadrangle Club. We hosted up-and-coming singer/songwriter Jade Bird, in conversation with Professor Sean Wilentz, in Richardson Auditorium. This semester, like last, we had a tabling and publicity campaign to gather feedback from the student body, specifically about Lawnparties (Soc Comm’s biggest event.) We gave away bubble tea and took Polaroid photos for those who visited our table in Frist! Finally, in December, we hosted the first ever Jingle Ball Giveaway, where we gave away 4 floor seat tickets to the Jingle Ball concert in Philadelphia (featuring artists like The Chainsmokers, Kesha, Halsey, Logic, Fall Out Boy, and more.) Over 100 people signed up to compete, and Soc Comm sponsored free late meal for those without late meal plans. What’s next for Dean’s Date in January? We’ve got a surprise in store for you!

IT Committee

Chair: Rushy Panchal

Email/Contact: rpanchal@princeton.edu

Description: The TigerApps committee’s primary goal is improving the student developer experience, in terms of providing resources for student apps and projects. In addition, TigerApps also maintains and improves existing student-built projects such as Recal, Princeton Courses, and TigerTrade.

Monthly Updates: Recently, the committee has accepted Princeton Courses as an official TigerApp. In addition, we are working on an official API for campus-related data, such as courses, rooms, and so forth.
