Admitted students, families to arrive for Princeton Preview
More than 2,000 people are expected to visit campus this month for Princeton Preview, as newly admitted students and their families arrive to sample the University's academic, residential and social offerings. The annual hosting program will be held Thursday through Saturday, April 11-13, and Monday through Wednesday, April 22-24.
Princeton has offered admission to 1,931 students, or 7.29 percent of the 26,498 applicants for the Class of 2017.
The event will allow prospective members of Princeton's Class of 2017 to sit in on classes, take campus tours and attend panel discussions with students, faculty and deans on topics such as academic and residential life, undergraduate research, and life after Princeton. Panel discussions also will be offered on opportunities available through the Study Abroad Program and the Bridge Year Program, which allows up to 35 entering freshmen to defer their enrollment and spend nine months abroad in service.
Princeton Preview participants can attend an activities fair hosted by student organizations and clubs as well as open houses at Career Services, the Center for Jewish Life, the Davis International Center and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Center. Admitted students will spend the night with Princeton student hosts and attend social events in the residential colleges and elsewhere on campus.
