Hey Prospective Students,
Our undergraduates want to Hangout with you!
Do you want to know more about academics at Princeton? Are you curious about life outside the classroom?
On Monday, Sept. 28 at 9 p.m. EDT, four Princeton undergraduates will be taking your questions and talking about what makes Princeton unique.
You can log in with your Google account to ask questions live and up-vote questions via the Q&A app on the right-hand side of the page. If you can’t make the live session, you can watch later on the event page or on the University’s YouTube channel.
