Students honored at 2017 Opening Exercises

2017 Opening Prize Winners

“We are proud of these prize-winning students and delighted to celebrate their academic success,” Dean of the College Jill Dolan said. “They have worked diligently at their studies, while demonstrating how to best take advantage of the many opportunities Princeton offers its undergraduate students. For instance, they belong to clubs, hold internships and conduct service work, study abroad, and excel in artistic practices — all in addition to maintaining high grade point averages. They are an inspiration to our community. I’m pleased to mark their accomplishments with these distinguished awards.”
