Freshman seminar applications due Aug. 11

Members of the class of 2007 can explore the list of freshman seminars available and register online through Monday, Aug. 11.

Copies of the program booklet were mailed to incoming freshmen this week. Students are encouraged to apply for fall seminars using the online application.

Freshmen can find descriptions of the seminars and the electronic application form at the Program of Freshman Seminars Web site.

The freshman seminar program is designed to introduce students to the excitement and challenge of working in a small setting with a professor and fellow students on a topic of special interest to them. Almost universally, students say that their freshman seminar was one of their best academic experiences at Princeton.

This year, the University will offer 65 freshman seminars, each hosted by a residential college. Topics include: "How Science Happens: The Struggle of Discovery Against Dogma," "Hip Hop, House and Raves: Social Dance and Social Life in 21st-Century America" and "Islamic Movements in the Modern Middle East."
