University and Eating Clubs Broker Historic Deal

SHARE

Princeton University has pushed aside decades of mistrust to enter a deal with its eating clubs, which have long been the de facto dining halls for upperclassmen. The deal aims to make the clubs more financially accessible to all students by providing those who can't afford membership with financial aid of up to $2,000 a year. The new partnership shows Princeton has "yielded to pressure from students and alumni who refuse to relent in their support" of the clubs, writes the Daily Princetonian.
