Not good enough? Princeton’s ‘new motto’

In response to: Matching wits at the pub; creating a group identity

Re On the Campus Nov. 19 by Isia Jasiewicz ’10, reporting that 700 Princetonians are now calling Old Nassau “Princeton University: Where Your Best Hasn’t Been Good Enough Since 1746”:

I was required by the Graduate School to do two years of Princeton work in eight months. Although the outcome for me was not very humorous, I can now greet the new motto with unbridled laughter.
