Classes back in session

Sept. 13, 2017, 8 a.m.

Classes for the new academic year began at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 13.

Some students are starting their day with "Basic Principles of Quantum Mechanics" or "Beginning Polish." Others may be starting with the after-lunch music class, "Species Counterpoint," or "Classical Roots of Western Literature." Some are waiting until evening for the freshman seminars "Life in a Nuclear-Armed World" or "So, You Want to Change the World?" For some students, their first day of classes is thousands of miles away in an international setting. Wherever students may be for the start of the new school year, Princeton has tools and resources to support students along their academic journey.
