Princeton Canadians

Canadians form the largest group of foreign students at Princeton University, numbering nearly 200 undergraduate and graduate students. As a University-recognized student organization, we aim to:

maintain and strengthen our Canadian social and cultural ties;

encourage further scholarship and research into Canadian issues within a North American context;

represent the Canadian community at Princeton in matters affecting us, and;

host social events where the entire University community is invited to share the Canadian experience.

If you have any questions or comments regarding this site or our organization in general, don't hesitate to write us!

Princeton Canadians

You've been dreaming about them, your friends have asked you about them... You KNOW you want them. Not only that, but they have birthday/Christmas/family gift written all over them*.
Check out the design and be sure to attend our annual Fall Welcome Lunch and Spring BBQ to get your own free shirt!

* (no... not literally - although you can do it yourself if you really want to)
