Princeton University celebrated Freshman Families Weekend on Oct. 13-15 with lively discussions and opportunities for students to share their new Princeton home with family members.

“Freshman Families Weekend is meant to continue our Orientation activities by inviting families of first-year students back to campus six weeks after move-in day,” Dean of the College Jill Dolan said. “Now that their students have settled into residential and academic life at Princeton, we’re pleased to give families an in-depth view into what it’s like to be in your first year on campus. We invite them to faculty lectures; panels about study abroad and service and civic engagement; discussions about the complexities of the transition to campus; and a discussion with President Christopher L. Eisgruber and myself. We’re happy to welcome parents back for a more granular view of our fall semester and ongoing student-focused activities and possibilities.”
