A friendly oasis

In response to: Wilson College turns 50

Published on January19, 2011

I enjoyed living in Wilson College for my freshman and sophomore years. It was a friendly oasis in what seemed a very intimidating place, and where I made some lifelong friends. A few years ago, while visiting my nephew at Princeton, I wandered over to my freshman dorm, 1915 Hall. I had forgotten the inscription for the dorm, memorializing a young Princeton man who had lost his life in war, and I was reminded of the Princeton motto and how I had taken that meaning to heart ever since.
