Princeton Preview welcomes admitted students, families

April 8, 2014 10 a.m.

More than 2,000 people are expected to visit campus this month for Princeton Preview, as newly admitted students to the Class of 2018 and their families arrive to sample the University's academic, residential and social offerings. The annual hosting program will be held Thursday, April 10, and Monday, April 28.

Princeton has offered admission to 1,939 students, or 7.28 percent of the near-record 26,641 applicants for the Class of 2018. Admitted candidates have until May 1 to accept Princeton's offer of admission.

The event will allow admitted students 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.
