August 2015

On behalf of Princeton University, we're delighted to invite you to attend Freshman Families Weekend for the Class of 2019, which will take place Friday-Sunday, Oct. 9-11, 2015.

Freshman Families Weekend offers us an opportunity to welcome you to campus, where we will introduce you to some of the most important aspects of undergraduate life at Princeton. As your new Princetonian gets acclimated to campus, this weekend lets you immerse yourself in a parallel experience of University life, as well as providing opportunities for questions about procedures and policies and for your own learning pleasure.

We program panel discussions, lectures and presentations that invite you to hear from and ask questions of administrators, faculty and other undergraduate students who are well acquainted with the academic, social and recreational, and residential experiences of our students. Open houses, tours, and cultural and athletic events will allow you to experience many of the activities Princeton students value and enjoy.

Just as important as our formal program, the weekend gives you an opportunity to spend time with your student as they share their college experience with you, introduce you to their friends and show you around our beautiful campus.

Please use the online registration form to let us know whether you'll be able to join us for Freshman Families Weekend. If you prefer to print the form and fill it out, please submit the completed form no later than Thursday, Oct. 1.

Should you have questions or require further information, please contact Lucy Weise at the Office of Conference and Event Services at 609-258-1741, or email

We hope you'll able to join us, and we look forward to meeting you.

Jill Dolan, Dean of the College
W. Rochelle Calhoun, Vice President for Campus Life
