On Sunday, Aug. 29, Princeton officially welcomed the Classes of 2024 and 2025 to campus with the tradition of Opening Exercises and the Pre-rade. Opening Exercises are held annually in the University Chapel, featuring an address by University President Christopher Eisgruber ’83 and interfaith blessings. Immediately following, the Pre-rade welcomes first-year students in through FitzRandolph Gate, a tradition dating back to 2004.
