LOTS OF POTENTIAL, BUT QUESTIONS LOOM: Municipal officials are currently absorbing a recently released summary of Princeton University’s campus plan. Above is a rendering of a redeveloped Dinky Station, the proposed heart of the University’s planned arts and transit neighborhood.

PU Campus Plan Looks 10 Years Ahead, but Some Worry It Exceeds Town Goals

Matthew Hersh

Princeton University’s bold 10-year campus plan, recently distributed town-wide, outlines a comprehensive look at planned physical changes on campus, as well as changes in University policy, landscaping, architecture, and environment. The plan represents a set of goals first advanced in 2004 when top University administrators said the school would abandon the idea of a mirror campus in West Windsor, favoring a more walkable campus that would impact about one-third of the school’s 380-acre main campus.

Matthew Hersh

With presidential races on everyone’s minds these days, it only makes sense to get people thinking about Washington politics. Not the down-and-dirty kind reserved for the Sunday morning talk shows, but those of a more lighthearted variety — and for a good cause, to boot.

The Corner House Foundation, the fund-raising arm of Corner House, the non-profit municipal agency that offers counseling for adolescents, young adults, and their families, is gearing up for its annual fund-raiser at McCarter Theatre. The $125,000 campaign is only second to Corner House’s annual mailing campaign.

College of New Jersey Program Readies Students for Urban Teaching

Ellen Gilbert

“Our program is where we try to light the flame,” explained Laurence R. Fieber, Recruitment Coordinator for the Urban Teacher Academy, a two-week summer program for high school juniors based at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ).

Now in its third year, the program will run this summer from July 7 to 18. During this time, students experience life on a college campus, participate in field trips to urban institutions ranging from a school for autistic children to the Trenton Soup Kitchen, and learn to teach. The program culminates in a day of students teaching young summer campers classes in math, science, and physical education, areas that are particularly under-served by current teachers in urban environments.
