Class of 2010 arrives
Princeton NJ — Freshmen Courtney Quiros of Atlanta (left) and Shobana Venkat of Copenhagen, Denmark, arrived on campus Sept. 2 and spent some time unpacking and getting to know each other in their Holder Hall room.
The first members of the class of 2010 to move in were those involved in the Outdoor Action and Community Action programs. After dropping their belongings on campus, the students embarked on several days of experiential learning during the two pre-orientation programs.

Learning the ropes
A total of 730 freshmen — some 60 percent of the class — participated in the Outdoor Action and Community Action pre-orientation programs Sept. 3-8. In addition to making new friends, the students learned about the many opportunities available to them on campus and in the surrounding communities.
