Orientation Home

Explore. Engage. Enjoy!

Over the past few weeks, student groups have been rehearsing, RCA’s have been training, and pre-orientation leaders have been preparing, all because we are thrilled to welcome a new class of Tigers into the Princeton community. To assist with the transition, Freshman Orientation is designed to give you the tools to explore your options, engage in campus life, and enjoy yourself along the way.

Getting Started

View the full list of events for the week on the Orientation Calendar page. Please note that some student group events are not yet available. Please check back often as these events will continue to be updated.

Keep in mind that core events will always be part of your schedule because all new students are required to attend.
