Spurred in part by access restrictions for campus dormitories, WPRB radio is creating a second broadcast studio near campus in Princeton to supplement its Bloomberg Hall headquarters. Nicknamed “the Barge” (after U.K. radio stations that operated from international waters in the 1960s), the new space will be used by WPRB’s community DJs, who have been broadcasting from home since the start of the pandemic. Dan Ruccia ’05, president of the Princeton Broadcasting Service, said the change is a temporary fix and the station is working with campus partners to find a space both students and community members can access.

Princeton will soon offer a Ph.D. program in bioengineering. Faculty approved the program in early March. The new Environmental Studies and School of Engineering and Applied Science complex on Ivy Lane, slated to open in 2025, will include a building devoted to bioengineering.

Security cameras will be installed at the exterior doorways of all undergraduate residential college buildings and dorms, according to a memo sent by Princeton administrators on March 8.

The addition of cameras was expected to begin in March, and all cameras should be online by the start of the fall semester. Security measures at graduate residential housing are being reviewed as well, with the memo stating that “several needs identified in the fall are in the process of being or have already been resolved.”

Two recent graduates, Willow Dalehite ’22 and Ben Weissenbach ’20, will study at the University of Cambridge as Gates Cambridge scholars. Dalehite, an ecology and evolutionary biology major at Princeton, will study zoology. Weissenbach, who majored in English, will pursue polar studies.
