Behind this Smile: A Conversation Series

Jan. 31, 2016

Take a look at PPP's first conversation series: Behind This Smile! We had around 50 students join in the filming of this video, and we are so excited to open up conversations about what is behind our smiles. Oftentimes, there is something else going on behind the smiling face of a student on campus. Whether this is stress, genuine contentedness, or anxiety, it is important we discuss the emotions underneath the surface. 


Each month the Princeton Perspective Project will collaborate with a different campus group/organization to highlight the pressure for effortless perfection in nearly every thing Princeton students do, on-and-off campus.

We will be hosting a conversation-based event each month with these groups and organizations.

Stay tuned for more information about the first event, which will be held next Wednesday, February 10th. Rebecca Nyquist '09 will join us and student-athletes are encouraged to participate in this conversation about grit, resilience, and the pressures to reach perfection in the classroom, on the field, in the pool, and on the court!
