This email alert from PAW comes a day after the selection of Provost Christopher Eisgruber ’83 as Princeton’s next president. Eisgruber sat down for an interview with PAW shortly after the University’s announcement; a link to excerpts from that interview appears below. See our May 15 issue for more on this story. PAW’s regular coverage begins with our feature about Dan Feyer ’99, who on most days can complete the New York Times crossword puzzle in the time it takes to brew a pot of coffee. Feyer, the champion of the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament in each of the last four years, is one of several alumni who have turned their fascination with puzzles into a competitive pursuit. Read more about Princeton’s top solvers in the April 24 issue, and follow the video link below to see them in action.
