If the mundane foolishness perpetrated on students by the faculty as described in “First Day of Class: Faculty Start the Semester With New Conversations” (On the Campus, February issue) is allowed to continue, Princeton will not retain its number one ranking much longer. The tripe about land acknowledgement, safe and sheltered spaces, gender self-identification, etc. had me thinking I was reading a parody issue of the Princeton Alumni Weekly. If this is what occupies the classroom, then we are looking at an uneducated future.
