Opening Exercises ceremony marks start of year

Sunday, Sept. 13, 2014, 3 p.m. University Chapel

The University will mark the beginning of the academic year with Opening Exercises at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 13, in the University Chapel.

The annual interfaith service will include an address by President Christopher L. Eisgruber and the recognition of academic achievements of undergraduate students.

Freshmen will enter the chapel with classmates in their residential college. The chapel is expected to be filled with the estimated 1,300 members of the Class of 2019, as well as faculty and administrators who will process in academic regalia.

Family members will be directed to simulcast sites in McCormick Hall, Room 101, and McCosh Hall, Room 50. The ceremony will be broadcast live on TigerNet Channel 7 on campus and streamed live on the University's Media Central website. The broadcast will be archived on the Web for later viewing.

Following the ceremony, weather permitting, the freshmen will participate in the "Pre-rade" from the chapel through FitzRandolph Gate, giving them the opportunity to officially enter the campus to start their undergraduate experience and to be greeted by fellow Princetonians.

Classes begin on Wednesday, Sept. 16.
