The deadline for a design competition for Princeton's sixth residential college is Sunday, March 10.
In fall 2000, a group of students formed Prospects, an organization that sponsored a design competition seeking creative ideas about the future of spaces and social life on Prospect Avenue. This spring, the group is sponsoring a second competition focusing on the new Whitman College.
All students, young alumni and other members of the University community are invited to submit ideas.
"The success of the four-year program at Whitman College depends on the creation of innovative spaces, visionary programming and far-reaching objectives aimed at integrating new opportunities into campus life," the group, called Prospects02, says in a statement on its Web site . "Participants in the competition are encouraged to think broadly about the design and function of the sixth college; they are also welcome to focus on aspects of special interest."
Entries will be judged primarily on the quality of their ideas, and less on their graphic presentation. By promoting a public dialogue about the project, the group hopes to enable members of the University community to help shape the plans and inspirations for the new residential college.
Initial submissions, which can include any combination of text and images, must be on one 11-by-17-inch sheet of paper. They should be delivered to the Frist Campus Center Welcome Desk by midnight Sunday.
