New website for Class of 2016 available

May 1, 2012, 1:21 p.m.

Incoming freshmen and their families can find important information about attending Princeton, as well as interact with University staff and students, via the new website Your Path to Princeton. The site enhances and replaces the previous welcome site for incoming freshman classes.

Your Path to Princeton provides students with an introduction to the undergraduate experience and helps them forge connections with the University before they arrive on campus. The website serves as a central information portal for freshmen and directs students to other University resources, such as housing policies and move-in schedules.

Starting on Monday, May 21, members of the Class of 2016 also may take advantage of interactive features allowing them to ask questions of deans and directors of studies in the residential colleges, as well as talk with each other and current Princeton students through blogs, email and online discussion groups. The website is publicly accessible, though incoming freshmen will have to log in with their University netIDs to access the interactive features.

Your Path to Princeton also features a section for parents and useful information for other members of the University community, such as an abbreviated orientation calendar and important dates and deadlines for matriculating students. Updates will be made throughout the summer as new information becomes available, and incoming freshmen may use the website to keep track of enrollment tasks that must be completed before they arrive in the fall.

The website is sponsored by the Office of the Dean of the College, in collaboration with residential college staff and the Undergraduate Student Government. The site was designed and built by the Office of Information Technology's Web Development Services
