  • Wells that extract natural gas from underground often leak large amounts of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, into the air.

    A team from Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, Princeton University has found that, in the Marcellus Shale basin, most of these emissions come from a tiny subset of the wells, a finding with major implications for how to control the problem.

  • #TellUsTigers: “Arriving at Princeton in fall of my first year, I thought of one thing most: dance. Even with all the other oohs and ahhs of my new-campus life — lively orientations, compelling classes, new friends — I cared most about how I would continue my passion for ballet and contemporary dance. When I auditioned for diSiac Dance Company, I was inspired by the company’s unmatched talent (I am still blown away every rehearsal). What I did not expect was to be equally blessed with the best family on campus! Not only is diSiac a student-run community of incredibly devoted artists, they fill my time at #PrincetonU with endless comfort, laughs and craziness, in and out of rehearsal. There is something so special about the way diSiac embraces its members not only as dancers, but as people. Because of it, I have grown so much. There is an indescribable connection that exists between all diSiac dancers, what we love to call ‘diSi-magic.’ We have a saying to remind us of this feeling, ‘You think you know, but you have no idea.’ I truly didn’t know I’d ever be in Paris dancing with Liam Lynch ’21 (left) & Fabiola Corral ’21 (right)! In June, we parted ways for internships. Through Princeton Office of International Programs' International Internship Program, I’m working at the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance in Stockholm, Sweden (and taking ballet at Balettakademien Stockholm). As a Princeton Streicker Fellow, Fabiola is conducting neuroscience research at ESPCI Paris ESPCI’s Brain Plasticity Lab in Paris. Liam is a risk engineering intern at R+V Versicherung in Germany, where he is also training at URBAN DANCE CAMP! But of course diSiac brought us together. When Liam & I visited Fabiola for Bastille Day, diSi-magic was on full blast! Even after walking almost 25k steps around Paris, we were still pumped to film a concept video, now live on @disiacdance [on Instagram]. For me, this trip & this photo are an extraordinary reminder that diSiac is larger than Princeton’s campus. I am grateful to say it is wherever life takes us, and, above all, forever. So, even if I think I know, I still have no idea where it will take me next.” — Dana Iverson ’21

    Designed to help increase diversity in the art leadership field, students and faculty from historically black colleges and universities addressed these questions at the inaugural Curation, Leadership, Artistry and Practice Program at Princeton University Art Museum this summer.

  • #TellUsTigers: “I will never forget the first day of eighth grade. Months earlier, my parents — both small business owners and political activists in Venezuela — decided to move to the United States to seek refuge after being politically prosecuted by members of the totalitarian Chavista regime. As a clueless 13-year-old, I truly did not know what to expect. Questions such as ‘Will I make friends?’ and ‘Will I ever learn to speak English?’ took over my thoughts and emotions. I remember sitting in a school gym packed of teenagers who had grown up around each other, and I began crying. I cried because I didn’t know the language, because I didn’t know anyone, and because I didn’t know what to do. For the first time in my life, I grasped the meaning of being vulnerable — vulnerable in a strange land. Five years later, I faced another unforgettable day — my first day at Princeton, which in many ways was similar to that first day of eighth grade. I was vulnerable, not only because I was surrounded by people I didn’t know — some of whom went on to become family — but also because I was occupying unchartered territory at an institution I never thought was attainable. Yet, it was also very different: I understood the value of community and knew I wasn’t alone. Thus, at Princeton, I focused on building and supporting communities. From working to foster a strong Latinx community on campus through Princeton Latinos y Amigos to mentoring underrepresented youth in Trenton to leading a youth-run local political campaign in Florida, working with others filled the gaps created by my own vulnerabilities. During my time at Princeton University, I found not one but several communities that welcomed my entire self while pushing me to develop my own voice — one grounded in morals and values and that transcends linguistic abilities.” — Samuel Vilchez Santiago ’19, recipient of the Pace Center for Civic Engagement, Princeton University Priscilla Glickman ’92 Memorial Prize, awarded to a senior for demonstrated independence and imagination in community service, and the Princeton University Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students Spirit of Princeton Award for positive contributions to campus life.

  • "If I could give incoming first-year students at Princeton one piece of advice, I would say talk to your professors. Go see them during office hours. Invite them to lunch at your residential college. You don’t have to have a problem in a course to approach a professor. Go because there’s something about what they’re talking about that interests you. Or tell them what you’re puzzled about in the world. And then, be excited because you’re going to have a wonderful conversation."

  • #TellUsTigers: “Last summer, as a recipient of a Dale Summer Award, I completed a photography project that challenged me physically, mentally and emotionally in ways that I hadn't been able to when I first arrived at Princeton. I had to grow up faster than most kids. Starting when I was a 6-year-old, it was my job to take care of my mom when she didn't have the energy or strength to take care of herself and I was also my brother's protector as the only one in my family who learned how to communicate with him when he was nonverbal — he has a seizure disorder, ADHD and autism spectrum disorder. (Now, my mom and I joke that he is my son.) I also developed an anxiety disorder, sustained a knee injury and expected myself to financially and emotionally assist my family even before I got accepted to Princeton as a 16-year-old. I felt like the world was my responsibility. One of the biggest reasons I chose #PrincetonU was to be close to my home in New York City, so I could continue to be helpful to my brother and my family. For my Dale project — which is designed to be an independent project not connected to academic coursework — I revisited landmarks where my history lies, documenting all the places/people that made me, starting at my birthplace in Brooklyn. I also invited family from Santiago, República Dominicana, to visit and share stories of me growing up, before taking my trip to Banff National Park in Canada. I brought my boyfriend, Nye Underwood '20, with me. I expected my project to be fun and enlightening, not an emotional journey. However, all the anger, trauma and hope was still there even though I didn't feel it before. I didn't realize how numb I was and how much I held myself back because I never put myself first. At the end of my trip, while staring at the night sky with my camera pointed at Mt. Aylmer, there was a moment where I finally stopped shivering. I figured, if I was happy in 17° weather even though I had a horrible cold, didn't know how home was doing, and couldn't remember the last time I had a proper meal, shower or sleep, then everything can be okay.” — Veronica Carrasco ’20, photo by Nye Underwood ’20 #Princetagram
