Onlookers cheer as a student rushes to hand in her paper a few minutes before the "Dean's Date" deadline

"Dean's Date" is the Tuesday at the end of each semester when all written work is due. This day signals the end of reading period and the beginning of final examinations. For Princeton students, this calls for a celebration! Students crowd into McCosh Courtyard before the 5:00 p.m. paper deadline to cheer on fellow students who have left their work to the very last minute!
