  • #TellUsTigers #Princetalove #ValentinesDay edition: When I first met Oakley Richins and he told me he was from Idaho, I really thought he was kidding. Until then I had only associated Idaho with potatoes and had never really thought about the people living there! I could not have found a better person to teach me otherwise. We met sophomore year on a spring break trip with Princeton’s ultimate frisbee teams. I’ve always said that joining frisbee was the best decision I made while at Princeton, not just because of how fun it was or my amazing teammates, but because it brought Oakley and me together. We maintained a close friendship before we finally started dating senior year. It had reached the point where people often asked me why we weren’t dating already! Last Valentine’s Day gave me confirmation that we were perfect for each other. We each formulated the same plan to sneak into each other’s rooms to leave a gift while the other was away. I loved that our minds thought so alike. His sweet and thoughtful gesture just confirmed what I already knew — that he was the one for me. Recently I moved to Salt Lake City to pursue my master’s while Oakley is in Boise for the time being. Salt Lake is the closest major city to Boise, but still a 5-hour drive away. I think it’s bittersweet that we’re still apart even though we’re so much closer than we would have been if I’d stayed on the east coast after leaving Princeton. The distance has definitely been hard, but we’ve managed to make it work despite being apart for more than half of the past year. Although I think it has made our relationship stronger, I’m very excited for the time when we’ll no longer have to do long distance. I have a list of all the adventurous things I want us to do once we’re together again! One thing we want to do soon is play competitive frisbee on the same club team. Surprisingly, we’ve never had the opportunity to play together, despite it being how we initially met! We also plan to eventually win ‘The Amazing Race,’ but I think it’s best to start with a more attainable goal.” — Nicole Rinaldi ’18; photo: Sarah Zhou24 ’19 #Princetagram

  • #TellUsTigers: “After graduating from Princeton University with a liberal arts degree, going into the tech industry wasn’t an obvious path for me. I had a unique college experience that I couldn’t imagine being possible anywhere other than Princeton. Instead of joining an academic department, I worked with faculty members to create an independent concentration combining political science and psychology. I had intense one-on-one classes with professors, oftentimes critiquing the books they’d written — there was no hiding in the back of a classroom. I also took some once-in-a-lifetime courses just for fun like a small advanced writing seminar with Nobel laureate Toni Morrison and a journalism class with my personal favorite, alumnus and biographer A. Scott Berg ‘71. After graduating, I went into management consulting, but found myself wanting to get back into more creative work; I started reading in my free time about the latest new products, trends and startups coming out of Silicon Valley. I packed up, spent two years at Stanford Graduate School of Business, and pivoted into the world of product management. I currently lead a product team building messaging products for Facebook Messenger and Instagram. But the humanities still factor into my day to day. Building new products is fundamentally human work. It requires personal skills to manage a team, creative vision to set the right goals and a strong understanding of people’s needs — all skills that I honed while at Princeton. While many people said that it wouldn’t be possible to be a great product manager without an engineering degree, I’ve found that many top product leaders come from the humanities. I feel lucky to have found a career that both aligns with my passions and also brings value to millions of people around the world — thanks in large part to the creativity and independence instilled in me at Princeton.” — Ryan Ebanks ’10 #Princetagram

  • #TellUsTigers #PrincetonAbroad: “I had no idea where I wanted my life to go after high school. I feared I would study a subject I didn’t love in college and graduate with a degree I didn’t want. Thus, my decision to apply to Novogratz Bridge Year Program — a fully funded 9-month service-learning trip to a foreign country before your first year on campus — was an easy one. I already knew the benefits of a gap year, since I had already taken one. Growing up, my parents taught me to respect the heroes who put themselves in harm's way for my safety. I enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserve and joined my local fire department. That training-intensive year taught me a lot about service, teamwork and myself. Princeton’s Novogratz Bridge Year Program focuses on experiential education or ‘learning by doing.’ We have hiked with villagers in the Himalayas, performed chores at an Ashram (a boarding school based on Ghandian principles), explored forts across Rajasthan, sampled the best food Mumbai has to offer, attended an arts festival in Goa and traversed sand dunes atop the backs of camels in Jaisalmer (where this photo was taken). In Udaipur, where our home-stays are, I work with Jan-Daksha Trust, committed to empowering marginalized migrant workers, particularly women. I focus on Project Sambal, a cancer awareness and counseling initiative. Since much of the work requires speaking with migrant workers, I was unsure how I could best contribute. I learned that Jan-Daksha gets much of its funding from foreign donors and makes publications in Hindi and English. My responsibilities include proofreading and updating the website and social media accounts. My first gap year was about challenging myself. My second is about discovery, of self and world. To high schoolers looking ahead, I advise you to slow down. College is not a race: whether you get a degree 4 years after high school or 10 is of little consequence. Take some time to discover who you are and what you value. Your experiences outside the classroom will only serve to enhance your college experience. Perhaps most valuable of all are the memories that will last a lifetime.” — Logan Mundy ’23. Photo by Joe Becker ’23 #Princetagram
