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!
