More than 2,000 people are expected to visit campus this month for Princeton Preview, as newly admitted students and their families arrive to sample the University's academic, residential and social offerings. The annual hosting program will be held Thursday through Saturday, April 7-9 and 14-16.
Princeton has offered admission to 2,282 students, or 8.39 percent of the record 27,189 applicants for the class of 2015.
The event will allow prospective members of Princeton's class of 2015 to sit in on classes, take campus tours and attend panel discussions with students, faculty and deans on topics such as academic and residential life, multiculturalism and life after Princeton. Panel discussions also will be offered on opportunities available through the Study Abroad Program and the Bridge Year Program, which allows 20 entering freshmen to defer their enrollment and spend nine months abroad in service.
Princeton Preview participants can attend an activities fair hosted by student organizations and clubs as well as open houses at Career Services, the Center for Jewish Life, the Office of Religious Life, the Fields Center and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Center. Admitted students will spend the night with Princeton student hosts and attend social events in the residential colleges and elsewhere on campus.
Students and their family members will begin arriving as early as 8 a.m. each Thursday, and the program will run through 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning.
