Yesterday was the Chinese Spring Festival, better known as Chinese New Year. Gone is the Year of the Ox. We are now in the Year of the Tiger — so things should be looking up for students as Princeton.
The University homepage notes that 1746, the year in which the school was founded, was also a Year of the Tiger. ^_^
But be warned: The first day of spring occurred before the beginning of this lunar year, making it a "blind year." Marriage is thought to be unlucky in blind years, in case you were planning.
