Rockefeller-Mathey dining hall servery

One of the most amazing elements of community here at Princeton is the dining experience in the Residential College. Before you arrive on campus, each of you will sign-up for a meal plan. The number of meals you receive each week is dependent on the plan you purchased; over 90% of first-year students choose the unlimited plan. There are many locations on campus that will accept your meal plan, including the residential college dining halls, the Graduate College, the Center for Jewish Life, and at Frist Campus Center for late meal.

The residential dining halls are a great resource for students with all types of interests and dietary restrictions...

Orientation Leaders holding a Class of 2020 banner

We are very excited to welcome you to Princeton! “We” is the proper pronoun here as almost all people and groups on campus contribute to making your first days (and of course the rest of your four years) on campus a truly wonderful experience.

Orientation is your introduction to life as a student and member of the Princeton community. It all begins with move-in on Saturday, September 3. If you thought Princeton Preview was a whirlwind, wait until you first step on campus. On the first day, you’ll not only meet your roommates, but also your RCA, ‘zee group, DoS, and DSL (Don’t worry, fun acronyms will soon be an integral part of your lexicon.). These folks will form part of your advising team and will serve as a resource to you...

Growing up in Queens, New York I was lucky to live in a predominantly South Asian neighborhood with a mosque down the block. Community and faith were intertwined and I never questioned why I was Muslim or why I should continue being Muslim. Instead I embraced my Muslim identity openly and threw myself into all the things I could find that had “Islam” or “Muslim” attached to its name. As a result I found wonderful friends and mentors and discovered many things that I’m passionate about, but each experience sparked more complicated questions about why and what I believe that I felt severely ill-equipped to answer. It was harder to find a spiritual connection to God than it was to continue going through the motions and keeping up...
