The senior thesis
Princeton NJ — The April 17 issue of the Princeton Weekly Bulletin included three profiles of students and their senior theses: an artist who grappled with themes of identity and classification; a student of public policy who sought to understand the competition between work and family priorities; and a pair with a passion for alternative energies, who found a new way to make an environmentally friendly fuel and are turning it into a full-fledged enterprise.
This issue profiles two more students finishing their independent work this spring: a musician who questioned the effect of institutionalized jazz education on the genre; and a budding astrophysicist who explored life on other planets — a topic that had fascinated him since he was a child.
