Although the primary focus of FSI is academic, students also enjoy the program's social dimension. Scholars live together on campus with approximately eight Residential College Advisers (RCAs), who are Princeton undergraduates entering their junior or senior year; every summer, several of our RCAs are students who were themselves Freshman Scholars.
Two graduate students Resident Graduate Students (RGSs) work with the RCAs to provide an array of events and activities, which in the past have included study breaks, trips to New York, dance parties and movie nights. Over the course of the summer, students also are introduced to a number of important resources and opportunities at Princeton, which range from student organizations to professional advising offices.
This summer, Butler College (one of six residential colleges at Princeton) will host the Freshman Scholars Institute. Students will live in the "new" dormitories at the college, which opened in 2009 and are featured in this short video.
