In response to shorter Princeton Preview, students organize overnight hosting system

In response tothe University’s decision to shorten the Princeton Preview program, a group of students is trying to organize an informal hosting system for admitted students.

The students created a Facebook groupcalled Informal Hosting for Prospective Princeton Studentson Thursdayevening, shortly after the University announced that the program for prospective students would be shortened to one day.

As of2:30 p.m. on March 30, 40 students had signed up to host a prospective student, and 13 prospective students had signed up to request a host.

Lorena Grundy ’17, who first came up with the idea, said she started the group because she was upset that some of the prospective students would not be able to attend the program if they could not stay on campus overnight.

“If Preview was just one day without the option to stay overnight, I don’t know if I would have been able to come,” Grundy said, reflecting on her own Preview experience. “Especially the people from West Coast and farther away, a lot of [prospective students] wouldn’t be able to come at all.”
