Campus Life
Everyone has been anxiously waiting for 2020, but Judy Jarvis and Leanna Jahnke from the Office of Wintersession and Campus and Engagement already have their sights set on 2021.
January 11th to January 24th, 2021 to be exact.
These dates mark the first two-week, campus wide Wintersession for the Princeton community.
What is Wintersesson?
Wintersession is a two-week experience for Princeton University community members to experiment and explore through unexpected, active and intriguing non-graded learning and growth opportunities. Undergraduate students, graduate students, staff and faculty can participate as teachers, learners or both.
The two-person department has been sharing the FAQs of Wintersession with departments across campus and getting valuable input and ideas from campus partners that will help to shape the program.
In addition to researching and visiting other institutions with similar initiatives, Judy and Leanna will hold focus groups for undergraduate and graduate students throughout February to ensure both communities of students have opportunities to learn about Wintersession and are able to share their ideas and thoughts.

Our Stories, Our Truths
 A new diversity orientation program launching this Fall 2020!
As a Kickoff to the First-Year Residential Program, Our Stories, Our Truths is an engaging common experience for all new undergraduate students to learn about the diverse identities, perspectives and experiences of fellow Princeton students through narrative and storytelling. Our Stories, Our Truths allows students to explore facets of their own identities and those of others, as well as reflect on their values, beliefs, backgrounds and experiences.
Our goal is to collect narratives from current Princeton students that will be incorporated into a creative monologue production for all first-year students during orientation. We hope to connect first-year students with the shared and diverse experiences of Princeton students and the campus community. We ask that interested students submit your narrative no later than February 10th at 11:59pm via the link here.
If you have any questions or challenges with the form, please email Thank you and we look forward to learning more about you and your story!
Student Activism at Princeton: Then & Now—this is a two part event. Princeton University Library's Archives Ambassador Program will provide historical and creative sessions on student activism at Princeton. These sessions aim to share institutional memory of past and current student activism on campus. At the historical session on Feb. 20, archivists will provide an overview of student activism on campus from the 1960s to now. A creative session (Part 2) will use archival materials as inspiration to create buttons and posters that reflect current activism. All are welcome.

Raising Race Questions:
A Lunch & Learn with Dr. Ali Michael

Wednesday, February 26, 2019. 12:00 – 2:00 pm

Carl A. Fields Center, Room 104


Please RSVP Here by Friday, February 21, 2019 by 12:00pm
and indicate any dietary and accommodation needs

Exploring racial identity in the workplace and learning about race and Whiteness can be confusing, contentious, and frightening, par­ticularly for White people. Even just asking questions about race can be scary because we are afraid of what our questions might reveal about our ignorance or bias.  During this lunch & learn, Ali Michael invites us to start this conversation with a vision that is worth working for: a healthy multiracial community.  Working backwards from that vision, what skills and competencies do White people need in order to be a part of creating that community?  Ali Michael is a White woman and will share stories from her life and research.

Friday, February 21, 12:30pm - 1:00pm 

University Organist Eric Plutz will perform selected preludes and fugues, in keys from "A" to "G". 
Free and open to all!

Friday, February 26, 8:00am - 9:00am.
