CAROLINE TUCKER: Hi, I'm
Caroline Tucker in

the class of 2017.

And I just moved into Whitman.

And today has been a great
day to meet all of the my

hallmates, and my RCA, and I'm
really excited to be here at

Princeton and for
the year ahead.

AVANEESH NARLA: The thing
I'm most enjoying about

orientation is the games.

We're having tons of ice
breakers and other games which

are making us all really close
and having tons of fun.

The thing I'm most excited about
Princeton is taking the

most interesting classes with
the most amazing professors.

CHRISTOPHER EISGRUBER: This
part of your Princeton

experience is going to be
something that you will

remember throughout
your time here.

Some of the friendships you form
over the course of this

trip will be friendships that
last, not only throughout your

Princeton experience,
but, I suspect,

throughout your lifetimes.

WALKER DAVIS: I decided to do
outdoor action because I felt

like it would be a great chance
to meet new people.

And learn outdoor skills.

It would be a lot of fun.

RYAN MILLER: We would wake up
in the morning, hike four or

five miles and then
stop for lunch.

And then, when we got to camp,
set up a tarp, and play lots

of ridiculous games
and [INAUDIBLE]

lot of fun.


HAJRAH HUSSAIN: I chose
community action and,

specifically, environment as
a chance to experience new

things again because coming
from the city, I

didn't really have this.

I've done other sorts of
community service.

So this is a different
way of giving back.

And I thought it would be
cool to experience.

SOFIA CHARANIA: This is kind of
like an opportunity for me

to see what community service
organizations and

opportunities there are in
Princeton and in the

neighboring area.

TIFFANY RICHARDSON: I'm most
excited for meeting a whole

crop of diverse people compared
to my hometown and

see what they have to offer
here at Princeton.

SAHAND KESHAVARZ RAHBAR: What
I'm looking most forward to at

Princeton is just the idea of
having a completely clean

slate and having an entirely new
experience to look forward

to, whether that involves
completely different subject

areas that I've never been
exposed to, completely new

friends, completely new
social experiences and

extracurricular experiences.

That's what I'm most
looking forward to.


CHRISTOPHER EISGRUBER: You
are at the beginning of a

Princeton adventure that will
challenge you, thrill you, and

transform you.

Unanticipated possibilities
await you, and most of you

will later look back on the next
four years as among the

best in your lives.
