Letter from the Editor

Hello fellow Alumni, Undergraduates and Charter supporters,

Welcome to the brand new Charter Newsletter!

Walking into the club just hours before the p-rade I felt a wave of familiarity but there was also an undercurrent of distance. In fact, every time I return campus I feel this tension of sameness and difference.

The newsletter is my attempt to bridge part of this disconnect.

So why now?

I’ve had this idea for a while but since graduation I have always lived at least 10 hours from Charter.  In May I moved to the DC metro area and reunions reminded me that I had re-entered the Princeton sphere. Time and age lead me to reconsider my relationship with the Club and I decided to be the change I wanted to see.

I look forward to hearing and sharing your stories about Charter, showcasing and introducing the undergraduate members and seeing you at Reunions.
