Touching base

By Josephine Sittenfeld ’02

Germanic languages and literatures major Kirk Graves ’02 took time out from writing his thesis on a Heideggerian approach to film narrative to check his e-mail at one of the computer terminals at Frist Campus Center. The Henderson, Tennessee, native is not alone in his dependence on Frist to keep in touch: A wholly unscientific survey of students shows that virtually everyone — even those who aren’t keen on the aesthetics of the place — stops by the center at least once a day to check e-mail and snail mail, grab a drink or some candy, or even rent a movie.

Says senior photographer Jo Sittenfeld, “Those computers are the best thing to happen to the Princeton campus. Everyone uses them. You always see someone you know there. Going to Frist is the best possible way to procrastinate.”
