News & Notes UCSB offers vaccine against meningitis B The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will offer Bexsero, a meningococcal serogroup B vaccine, to the student body of the University of California, Santa Barbara, according to an announcement by UCSB’s Student Health office on Feb. 2. The first dose will be available next month, according to UCSB’s health director Dr. Mary Ferris. Four students at UCSB contracted the meningitis B disease in November of 2013, one of whom was a freshman lacrosse player who had to have both of his feet amputated. The outbreak at UCSB came on the heels of an outbreak at the University that began in the spring of 2013 and saw its last case emerge in November. The CDC made the first dose of Bexsero available to the University student body and certain other community members in December, and the second dose will be available beginning Feb. 9. Bexsero is not approved for regular use in the United States. - Staff writer Jacob Donnelly

Charter Club members pick up new members from Rockefeller College on Sunday night.

Members of Terrace F. Club picked up 130 new members Sunday night after the first round of sign-ins, president Christopher St. John ’15 said. All the first-round members are sophomores. The club did not accept junior members during last year’s sign-in season either. “I am thrilled beyond belief,” St. John said of the new class of sign-ins. “I am just ecstatic that we didn’t

reach our cap and that everybody who wanted Terrace to be their club was able to. I was very nervous that we would run into a situation of a massive sign-in like last year and we would have to pull some sort of shtick but everyone who signed into Terrace first round got into Terrace and I’m so excited and thrilled for them.” Though this number is lower than the 183 students who signed into the club last year, it is nevertheless See SIGN-INS page 2

U. budget includes tuition hike

Forbes roundabout opens on time despite inclement weather

By James Evans senior writer

Total undergraduate fees will increase 4.1 percent in the 2014-15 school year, according to the annual operating budget report released by the University’s Priorities Committee on Monday. The report calls for a total operating budget of $1.6 billion, a slight increase from last year’s $1.58 billion budget. As the University’s finances continue to recover from the financial crisis, the report forecasted budget deficits starting in 2015 for the following six

years, as well as the possibility of lower endowment returns in the near future. “We must maintain financial discipline in the years ahead and reset community expectations for growth that were driven by exceptionally favorable long-term investment conditions unlikely to recur in the foreseeable future,” University Provost David Lee GS ’99 wrote in a letter introducing the report. Lee is also the chair of the committee. The Priorities Committee is a subsidiary of the Council of the Princeton University Community that is charged with recommending a budget

for the upcoming school year. Other members include the dean of the faculty, the executive vice president, the treasurer, six faculty members, four undergraduates and two graduate students. Also included in the new budget is an 8.5 percent increase in the funds allocated to undergraduate financial aid, bringing the total from $121.3 million to $131.6 million. The committee said it expects the increase in financial aid funds to outpace the increase in the percentage of students receiving aid, which is predicted to rise to 60 percent from 59 See FINANCIAL page 4

Kulkarni appointed Graduate School dean By Chitra Marti staff writer

Electrical engineering professor Sanjeev Kulkarni has been appointed the new dean of the Graduate School, the University announced Monday morning. Kulkarni succeeds William Russel, who announced his retirement last September. His appointment is effective March 31, although Russel was originally scheduled to retire at the end of the academic year. Kulkarni has served as director of the Keller Center since 2011 and was also master of Butler College from 2004 to 2012. Kulkarni joined the University faculty in 1991; he is currently Professor of Electrical Engineering and an affiliated faculty member of the departments of Operations Research and Financial Engineering, and Philosophy. He also served as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in the School of

Engineering and Applied Science from 2003 to 2005. Kulkarni could not be reached for comment and Russel declined to comment for this story. As dean, Kulkarni will report to Provost David Lee GS ’99. Although the two served as faculty in different departments, they have interacted a few times since Lee became provost. “We talked about the Keller Center and the great work that he’s been doing, and ideas about how entrepreneurship can be supported on campus,” Lee said. “At

the same time, in my interactions with other cabinet officers and administrators, you hear his name come up as someone who’s a great partner, who cuts across fields and works well with both academic and administrative units. I was obviously very pleased to see his name emerge from the pool of candidates.” Lee was also initially involved in the search process for the new Graduate School dean. “President Eisgruber and I formed the search committee, which included both faculty and graduate students. We wanted to make sure that we had a good representation of people in the university community who had a stake in the next dean. We charged them with identifying candidates, but the real work of reviewing candidates was done by the committee itself,” he said. See DEAN page 3

The intersection of Alexander Street and University Place that faces Forbes College will reopen as a roundabout on Monday morning after several months of construction, meeting the planned deadline despite inclement weather. The new traffic circle is ‘Phase 1’ of the ongoing Arts and Transit Neighborhood, a $300 million University project set to include new rehearsal and performance spaces as well as a permanently relocated Dinky station. The roundabout offers an illuminated, motionactivated crosswalk rather than a stoplight. “Given the extraordinarily cold temperatures and the snow that we’ve had thus far, I’m very pleased and really proud of the team that’s out there, working really hard to stay on schedule,” Director of Community and Regional Affairs Kristin Appelget said. Although the pedestrian route to the Wawa convenience store, a popular destination for University students in search of late-night snacks, will no longer be obstructed by metal fences, the sidewalk on the east side of Alexander Street will remain closed and vehicular access to the reconfigured Wawa parking lot will be restricted to one side of University Place. The new Wawa store is set to open next fall, and will be located within the Dinky transit complex around 450 feet from the station’s original location. Appelget noted that a team of University correspondents stays in touch with Wawa representatives to ensure sufficient signage and communication with the general public about possible detours and traffic changes. Appelget also said that most of the store’s customers are locals who are likely to have received direct announcements about any logistical changes. “I believe that the primary audience that uses the Wawa regularly knows that it’s still operating and they know that they’re going to be there and have a new store by the end of this year,” Appelget explained. However, a Wawa manager, who was granted anonymity in order to freely discuss the situation, said that the construction certainly hurt the business See A&T page 4

WINTERSESSION

By Paul Phillips associate news editor

Fred Hargadon, the former dean of admission known for the iconic ‘YES!’ he included at the top of admitted students’ acceptance letters, died Wednesday night, the University and his family confirmed. He was 80. Hargadon retired from his position as dean of admission in 2003. His legacy also includes a tight bond with the University’s athletic community, which he avidly supported, and a 2002 admission scandal involving a breach of applicant privacy that may have caused him to retire earlier than planned. Students and administrators alike remember Hargadon for modernizing the admission process and bringing a new level of personalized attention to his office’s review of applications. Former Dean of the College Nancy Malkiel noted that Harga-

don read every application personally each year of his tenure and had an uncanny instinct for finding the kinds of qualities that would enable students to succeed at Princeton. Janet Rapelye, Hargadon’s successor, said she noticed and appreciated Hargadon’s attention to detail when reading applications. Both Malkiel and former University President Harold Shapiro GS ’64 added that once ‘Dean Fred,’ as he was known, admitted students, he would continue to follow them throughout their undergraduate careers.

significantly higher than the 79 students who signed in during the first round in 2012. St. John explained that the f luctuation is natural and that the numbers are “always going to vary from year to year.” “Terrace has always been Terrace and will continue to be Terrace,” St. John said, dismissing rumors that Terrace was actively trying to avoid a large sign-in class during sophomore events. “We’re weirdos, we’re not being extra weird, we’re just weirdos.” St. John added that Terrace will be open for second round sign-ins but that he won’t know how many will be accepted in the second round until he meets with the club’s graduate board on Thursday. The meeting on Thursday will also determine how many juniors will

be accepted from the club’s waitlist, he said. Terrace was the only club to release its first round sign-in numbers to The Daily

While Pak would not disclose the exact number of first round sign-ins at Colonial, she said that the number is on par with last year’s first round and is even a little higher. She noted that the club has a cap on the number of sign-in members at 120, adding that she thinks the club will get close to that number. Colonial had a total of 106 new members sign up last spring. “I’m very satisfied with our sign-in numbers,” Pak said. “I’m pretty excited. A lot of the people who have been showing up to our events signed in first round.” While Zimmer did not comment on Charter’s exact figures, he said that “we are happy with the number of early admits,” adding that “everyone who did sign in early was extremely enthusiastic.”

New dean celebrated in past for approachability, teaching abilities DEAN

Continued from page 1

The search committee for a new dean was formed shortly after Russel announced his retirement, and was chaired by electrical engineering professor and vice dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science Claire Gmachl. “We met with all the constituents that have a stake in who the dean is and we listened to them, what they thought were the challenges, the opportunities for the graduate school, short-term but also long-term. We also reached out to the whole University community to give us feedback,” Gmachl said of the selection process. Last September, she said that the committee hoped to find a new dean before the end of the fall semester. “We took all the time we needed to take,” Gmachl said. “We planned it for the end of the semester, but didn’t force it; it more fortuitously worked out that way.” Gmachl spoke highly of

Kulkarni and said he will be an “outstanding” dean. Graduate Student Government president Friederike Funk, who was a member of the search committee, said she considers Kulkarni “the perfect choice. She explained she thought Kulkarni “would create bonds within the graduate school and between graduate students, without creating barriers to other groups on campus.” “Princeton is already a very great place of learning and personal growth, but he will be the person to make it an even greater place in the future,” she added. Funk also said that the graduate students face a number of “challenges for the future,” and Kulkarni can help the graduate school reach its potential. “He needs to address graduate student housing. I think the quality of graduate student housing is great. The University is doing a wonderful renovation of the apartment complex, but I think the quantity remains a topic he needs to revisit because

there are more graduate students than the 70 percent that Princeton has committed to house that would like to be

part of the campus community,” Funk said. Last November, graduate students circulated a petition opposing the demolition of Butler Apartments. The petition argued that the demolition, part of the University’s Housing Master Plan, would create excessive pressure on older students whose stipends are ending and on Princeton’s limited housing market.

Funk also said the dean should continue the pursuit of academic excellence, vibrant campus life and career development for graduate students. “Career development in and outside of academia is a very important topic that also goes with the appointment of the new executive director of Career Services, so it is important to start early to prepare students for the jobs that they choose, in and outside of academia, and to give them the tools and to learn the skills that they need,” Funk said. Kulkarni has also been lauded for his teaching abilities. Both Bryan Bosworth ’09 and Eric Cohen ’10 described him as an approachable, charismatic professor who made ELE 201: Information and Signals, a requirement for concentrators, interesting and relevant. “The thing that I liked about his class the most was that, when he was teaching us these basic concepts in information theory and stuff like that, he taught us about JPEG and data compression, which are ubiquitous. It was real-

ly worthwhile stuff to learn about, and you don’t see it nearly as much in textbooks or other resources,” Bosworth said. “He was actually writing the course material for that class. “I remember that he would

come around in our labs and kind of check on how we were doing,” Cohen said. “That was kind of fun, to have that nice professor interaction and to have him just generally be an approachable, relaxed presence.” Cohen chose Kulkarni to

be his thesis advisor based on his positive experience in ELE 201. “When I was trying to come up with a thesis topic, I was thinking, ‘Oh, who were professors that I liked?’ that had good demeanors or whatever, and I asked Kulkarni if he was available to do a thesis project, and he said yeah!” Cohen said. Both Cohen and Bosworth said Kulkarni went out of his way to be accessible to students. “I made a poor assumption on when the final project was due,” Bosworth said, “and he was very nice about letting me turn it in late.” Kulkarni will begin his deanship on March 31 to give him time to prepare for endof-year activities and to shape the new class. “That’s when you look at who’s going to graduate this year, and you have time to prepare for graduation activities. At the same time, you’re looking at the new class that’s coming in, and you have time to shape their preparation and the material that gets sent to them,” Gmachl said.

Budget deficits projected for next six years FINANCIAL Continued from page 1

percent among all classes. This year’s plan continues the University’s “stay-even” budgeting philosophy, which is designed to ensure that fee increases are not shouldered by students receiving financial aid. In an interview with The Daily Princetonian, Lee said that he believed the core principles of the University’s financial aid policy would continue to influence budgeting in future years. “The values underpinning this idea of providing access to Princeton without prohibiting students from coming because of cost — those values will be here indefinitely,” Lee said. “How those values translate to the actual financial aid package depends on the broader economic circumstances of the time.” The Priorities Committee suggested that the most likely causes of the expected deficits were the budget’s sensitivity to labor costs and endowment contributions, which make up 50 percent of revenue and expenditure, respectively. However, deficits in higher education may bear little resemblance to deficits in a corporate setting. As a nonprofit institution, the University is not looking to score a

profit; therefore, budget deficits and surpluses are perhaps better thought of as errors in budgeting. The projected deficits are “modest,” the report said, and will be covered by the $18 billion endowment. The report cited the deficits as artifacts of “conservative assumptions” in predictive mod-

els. Such conservatism reflects a broader turn toward expectations of smaller endowment returns across the Ivy League following deeply negative returns in fiscal years 2008 and 2009. “It would be unwise to develop budgets that depend on returns resembling the bull markets of the 1990s,” the report read. “In the decade ahead, we

will need to manage growth with careful attention to optimizing resources to best support our priorities.” Lee suggested that conservative budgeting is necessary for the University to adapt to a “new normal” following the financial crisis. “In the years leading up to the recession, our returns were outstanding, off the charts,” Lee said. “Of course, we had this huge correction and that really affected how we view expectations. Post-recession, we’re resetting our expectations to a new normal, so things aren’t exactly back to the way they were before. The University’s endowment returned 11.7 percent in the most recent fiscal year, up from 3.1 percent the year before. Despite the increased returns this year, the Priorities Committee cut allocations in half — to $600,000 — for so-called “programmatic recommendations,” or solicitations for budget increases requested by administrative offices. However, the committee accepted new proposals to fund the position of director of undergraduate research as well as expand Sexual Harassment/Assault Advising, Resources & Education activities. The Priorities Committee also

funded two of four proposed positions to bolster the University’s IT cybersecurity. An IT Security Specialist will be appointed to “oversee the identity management system” and a Network Operations Center Security Specialist to harness data analytics to “help protect our resources.” Cyber security has become an important issue for univer-

sities, as cyber attacks have been increasing in number, the report said. Last July, Stanford University reported a “breach of its information technology infrastructure” and encouraged Stanford network users to change their passwords. The Priorities Committee declined to fund an additional Network Operations Center Security Specialist as well as an IT Forensics Specialist.

even though communication was spot-on. “There’s no two ways about that. It was impactful, you felt it. It wasn’t something that could be avoided, that’s for sure,” he said of the apparent drop in consumers. Students living in Forbes College were directed to take one of two detours to reach the main campus during the construction period. Master of Forbes College Michael Hecht announced in an

email that students should expect, on average, an additional 30 seconds to their daily commute. “I definitely think it’s more than 30 seconds,” Forbes main inn resident Lulu Chen ’17 said, although she added that the few extra minutes on her daily commute were not a significant burden. Chen also said that the construction did not seem to affect the number of visiting students from other colleges. “I think [students] were reluctant to come in the first place because it’s Forbes,” she said. Maggie Kent ’16 noted that the

construction made going to the Wawa much more circuitous, so she went there far less often than she had before construction began, when visiting the convenience store was easier. “It’s more of an inconvenience than anything,” Forbes Annex resident Chris Hay ’17 said, adding that his daily commute was not significantly longer. “I feel like I knew what was going on, especially with the email updates.” Hecht noted that future construction will be less of an impingement on Forbes residents because it will take place farther away.

“I think people have been real troopers about it,” Hecht said of the construction. “I got the sense that this year’s students whined about Forbes being far away far less than they have in past years.” In addition to the roundabout, the performing art facilities set to open in the fall of 2017 will further reduce rush hour traffic, project officials predict. They explained that the students and faculty who would be making use of these facilities do not follow the traditional working hours of University staff, whose offices used to occupy the site.

‘Dean Fred’ remembered as wisest, most outstanding person in his field YES!

Nate Ewell ’96 said he was one of the many students whom ‘Dean Fred’ followed throughout his time at Princeton. Ewell added that while he had known Hargadon previously through his father, who had been a coach for the women’s hockey team, Hargadon would also recognize his friends, whom he knew only through their applications. “I got to know, from talking to other people, how unique that was,” Ewell said. Students and administrators also praised Hargadon’s commitment to diversity. W. Hodding Carter ’57, a former University trustee who had served on committees with Hargadon, said that under Hargadon’s leadership, Princeton changed from primarily representing the East

Coast to representing the entire country. Shapiro also said that Hargadon had helped Princeton become more diverse geographically, ethnically and socially and noted that Hargadon had encouraged his administration to think about whether low-income students were assisted by loans as much as they were by grants. The University enacted its noloan financial aid policy toward the end of Hargadon’s tenure, in 2001. Under Hargadon’s leadership, his office’s staff members began to split the time they spent visiting schools more equitably, rather than following the traditional pattern of allotting more staff time at independent schools than at public schools. Princeton also stopped meeting with school counselors to discuss students because they did not have enough time to do so with the 5,000 schools from which they

received applications. Counselor meetings were a privilege that had previously been delegated to independent schools and to select public schools. The later years of Hargadon’s tenure were marked by controversy over the treatment given to student-athletes in the admission process and an incident involving the unauthorized use of confidential applicant data. A 1998 University study group on undergraduate admission, which included Hargadon, Malkiel and Shapiro in addition to nine senior faculty members, praised Hargadon’s decisions overall but recommended that future committees pay more attention to students known as “academic 1’s” — students with high grades and standardized test scores — and students with artistic tendencies, as opposed to athletes. The report recommended that Princeton do this by expanding

the class size, while keeping the number of recruited athletes constant. Professors in the study group also said Hargadon was unresponsive to faculty admission inquiries. Controversy also preceded Hargadon’s retirement in 2003. In 2002, several members of the University’s admissions staff used confidential information from student applicants to view those students’ Yale admission decisions on that university’s website. The incident came at a time when the Princeton admissions staff was opposed to announcing admission decisions online, largely due to security concerns. Shortly thereafter, Stephen LeMenager, Hargadon’s secondin-command, left the Office of Admission and joined the office of the Vice President for Campus Life. Although the possibility of Hargadon stepping down had already been in place at the time,

discussions of extending his term ceased. Prior to arriving at Princeton in 1988, Hargadon had served as senior vice president of the College Board from 1984 to 1988, dean of admissions at Stanford from 1969 to 1984 and dean of admission at Swarthmore from 1964 to 1969. Malkiel, who helped make the decision to hire Hargadon in 1988, said she did so because “he had a reputation as the dean of all admissions deans” and was clearly the wisest and most outstanding person in the field. “Everyone has their critics and I’m sure he did too,” Shapiro said. “But I think a majority of people think that he moved our process in new directions.” Gary Walters ’67, the outgoing Director of Athletics, said Hargadon’s presence would be sorely missed on campus. “He was the Moses of admissions deans and was highly re-

spected by everyone who knew him well,” Walters said. “It’s a sad day.” Hargadon Hall in Whitman College bears his name, with the signature ‘YES!’ inscribed on the floor beneath the arch. Hargadon was born in 1933 in Ardmore, Pa., and was the first in his family to attend college. Hargadon attended Haverford College under the G.I. Bill of Rights and followed his three years there with graduate work at Harvard and Cornell. He is survived by brothers Bernie and John, sisters Anne and Judy, sons Steve and Andrew, and grandchildren David, Kate, Caroline, Cody and Anna. A website dedicated to his life became available Thursday and noted that information about memorial services would be announced soon. Editor-in-Chief Emeritus Luc Cohen contributed reporting.
