Communiversity set for April 26
Posted April 18, 2003; 05:42 p.m.
Town and borough residents, students, merchants, nonprofit organizations, musicians, performing and visual artists and food vendors will turn Nassau Street and the University campus into a colorful fairground from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 26, for the annual Communiversity celebration.
The event, sponsored by students at the University and the Arts Council of Princeton, is intended to bring the campus and community together on both sides of Nassau Street, which will be closed to vehicle traffic.
Traditional favorites, including performances on four stages, children's activities on Alexander Beach and more than 50 student booths in front of Nassau Hall, will join new additions such as sports games and demonstrations on Cannon Green.
Before the main event gets under way, there will be a morning architectural tour of campus leaving from the Frist Campus Center. Call Pam Hersh at (609) 258-3018 to register.
The Princeton Environmental Network is sponsoring 5k and 10k races for the Princeton Save the Tiger Campaign. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. at Forbes College, and all of the proceeds from the $15 entrance fee go to the Save the Tiger Campaign. At Weaver Track, the athletics department will sponsor a Spring Sports Festival, where varsity athletes will give a multisport clinic from 10 a.m. to noon.
Princeton borough and township mayors will speak at the opening ceremony at noon, along with President Tilghman. The University's International Center will continue its tradition of Communiversity participation with a flag procession beginning at 2:25 p.m. at the Nassau Street stage and ending on campus.
