Welcome to Freshman Families Weekend

Dear Parents and Families,

PLEASE NOTE: The Freshman Families Weekend website for the Class of 2019 should be updated by September 1. Please check back then for more information.

On behalf of Princeton University, we're delighted to invite you to attend Freshman Families Weekend, which will take place Friday-Sunday, Oct. 10-12, 2014.

Freshman Families Weekend is designed to introduce you to some of the important aspects of undergraduate life at Princeton. Panel discussions, lectures and presentations will provide you with opportunities to hear from and ask questions of administrators, faculty and undergraduates who are well acquainted with the academic, campus life and residential experiences of our newest students. Open houses, tours, presentations, panel discussions and cultural and athletic events will allow you to experience many of the activities Princeton students value and enjoy.

Just as important as the formal program is the opportunity for you to spend time with your students as they share their college experience with you, introduce you to their friends and show you around the 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 Wednesday, 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.

Valerie Smith, Dean of the College
Cynthia Cherrey, Vice President for Campus Life
