Web feedback sought through online survey

Princeton NJ -- The University's Web Strategy Task Force has posted a survey for users of the Princeton Web site, including all members of the University community.

It can be accessed from a link in the lower left of the University home page or by going directly to <www.princeton.edu/WebSurvey/PU_Web_Survey.html>. The survey is online through Monday, Dec. 31.

The task force is seeking feedback that will help shape the future of the Web site's core pages. Part of the survey seeks to determine which services and information are top priorities among the Web site's users. Questions especially for faculty and staff members include details about their departments' own Web site creation efforts.

     


Breakfast with President Tilghman

Princeton NJ -- Nineteen students got up early Nov. 7 to have breakfast with President Tilghman at Lowrie House. Tilghman plans to host such breakfasts occasionally during the year in order to provide another opportunity for conversations with students in a small-group setting.

     


Shapiro Walk dedicated

Princeton NJ -- President Emeritus Harold T. Shapiro and his wife, Vivian, took a stroll following the dedication of Shapiro Walk on Nov. 9. The new pathway, designated by a marker, extends the historic McCosh Walk to the east between Washington Road and Olden Street. The trustees approved the naming of the walk last spring to commemorate the couple's 13 years of service to the University.
