The Princetoniana Site
A vibrant community of scholarship and learning, Princeton University is also rich in traditions, both old and new. The Princetoniana site is intended to be an evolving website, with a focus on many of the traditions and qualities that make the University distinctive.

Inspired by Princeton's famous P-rade, the Pre-rade is for freshmen, who march with the president and members of the faculty (in full regalia) to be welcomed into the University community.
The "Pre-rade" is one of Princeton's newest traditions. On September 5, 2004, incoming members of the Class of 2008 were greeted by sophomores, juniors and seniors sporting T-shirts from their various residential colleges, and by alumni dressed in Reunions garb.
