New Admission video online

The Office of Admission has released a new 17-minute admission video, "Beginnings," that focuses on students as they embark on the Princeton experience. Drawing on conversations with students, faculty members, and President Shirley M. Tilghman as she began her first year in office, the video attempts to describe to potential applicants the nature and uniqueness of Princeton, and the kinds of experiences students have as they begin their college careers.

The video was produced by Andy Greenspan, who also produced the University's previous admission video in 1992 and a video on "defining moments" in Princeton's history in connection with the University's 250th anniversary. The production was coordinated by Vice President for Public Affairs Bob Durkee and Dean of Admission Fred Hargadon.

The video was shot on campus last fall. It exists in VHS and DVD format, and will be used by admission staff and alumni schools committee volunteers as they meet with potential applicants. It will also be made available to regional alumni associations, and viewings will be scheduled on campus.

The video can be viewed in various formats on the Undergraduate Admission Web page. Click here to view "Beginnings" online.
