Opening Exercises at 3pm on Sunday, September 8 in the University Chapel to welcome the Class of 2017.
The University marks the beginning of each academic year with Opening Exercises which is held in 2013 at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 8, in the University Chapel. The annual interfaith service includes an address by President Christopher L. Eisgruber, and the recognition of academic achievements of undergraduate students.
Freshmen enter the chapel with classmates in their residential college and are joined by Trustees, faculty, and administrators who process in academic regalia. Following the ceremony, freshmen participate in a "pre-rade" walking from the chapel through FitzRandolph Gate on Nassau Street, officially entering the campus to start their undergraduate experience and to be greeted by fellow Princetonians.
Chapel · 3:00 p.m.– 4:00 p.m.
