Why I Established the Edward Y. T. and Ho-Chi Huang Lin Family Endowment for Asian-American Studies

By Nancy H. Lin ’77 S76 P10

My father received his graduate degree in economics from Princeton 1935. He was a Boxer Rebellion Indemnity Scholar, and while he enjoyed his studies, he seldom spoke about his years at Princeton, although he did ask me not to join an eating club or play golf.  He became an interpreter, often acted in a paralegal capacity, and community social worker for Chinese immigrants, mostly in New York City’s Chinatown. My father had high, challenging standards and a kind heart.

Exploring the Impact of Princeton’s Summer Journalism Program for High School Students

August 25th, 2017 / Development Com...

In 2015, when we participated in the Princeton University Summer Journalism Program (SJP) as rising seniors in high school, we did not think we had what it took to come to Princeton; we couldn’t picture ourselves measuring up to our peers, never mind affording the cost of an Ivy League education. But today, we are about to begin our sophomore years at Princeton.

When Charles Yu was a young boy in the 1930s, China was in turmoil. The central government was fighting internal revolutionary forces, poverty and crime were rampant, and imperialist Japanese forces had gained control of the northeastern provinces. Troops were steadily moving south toward Charles’s village when his family fled to Manila.

China Up Close: A Global Seminar Immerses Students in a Changing Society

During a sunrise run in China’s remote Gansu Province last summer, Sam Rasmussen ’19 felt he was traveling back in time to China as it looked decades ago. He jogged on unpaved roads through desert terrain, past homes made of adobe and farmers working in their fields. When he needed a pit stop, a farmer led Rasmussen behind his house to a concrete slab over two holes in the ground.

Computing Solutions to Society's Challenges

December 8th, 2016 / Development Com...

Computer science powers the work of many disciplines. If a molecular biologist needs to match up millions of pairs of genes, or a humanist wants to mine databases to understand the evolution of English prose, computers make it possible. Princeton’s computer science department, part of the University’s renowned engineering school, is distinguished by its deep expertise in both the theoretical foundations of computing and the many applications of computing in modern life.
