Dear all,


Since we came to Princeton in the fall of 2020, this little paper has remained a constant source of inspiration, camaraderie, and much mirth. We’re honored to usher in the 46th volume of the Nassau Weekly.


As the Nass celebrates its first year of full financial and editorial independence, we welcome a range of new voices. We bolster our strong tradition of reflective and creative writing with an explicit emphasis on journalism and culture, taking full advantage of our long-form format and alt identity to produce a magazine unlike any other on campus—one that offers something for everyone every single week. The spirit of the Nass has always been that of courage, experimentation, and empathy. This issue’s stunning prose and illuminating investigations into literature, the self—and yes, love—encapsulate our vision for 2023: a publication for all readers, writers, and artists.


As anyone who has ever attended one of our pitch meetings in the beloved basement of Bloomberg Hall knows, the Nass is first and foremost a community. Truthfully, the two of us are, by this point, washed up. It is only through the tireless work of our dedicated and immensely talented masthead and contributors that we manage to pull this thing off each Sunday. This year we hope to expand our Nass family, engaging our readership through a fresh focus on recruitment, archival work, and the audiovisual space. We embrace our paper’s vibrant past, and we forge ahead.


Enough from us. Turn the page!
