The institution was formally designated Princeton University in 1896, and soon embarked on a major expansion under the auspices of future president of the USA Woodrow Wilson. Later i

Hickel "Talk About the War!" Three students were suspended over the incident. In 1971, the Third World Center, now the Carl A. Fields Center, was founded to address the concer
