Pre-rade, BBQ and Step Sing

Alumni are invited to attend the annual "Pre-rade" at Princeton University on Sunday, September 8, 2019, at 4:00 p.m. Please gather on the front lawn of campus, in front of Nassau Hall, to officially welcome Princeton's Class of 2023 as they march from Opening Exercises in the University Chapel through FitzRandolph Gate. The Pre-rade is a wonderful opportunity for alumni, students and families to celebrate the newest members of the University community. Learn more about the Pre-rade.

Alumni are also invited to attend the BBQ on Alexander Beach, which follows the Pre-rade.

Following the BBQ, we hope that you will join the Class of 2023 at 5:30 p.m. for the First Year Step Sing. Please note the Step Sing is moving from Blair Arch to the front steps of Clio Hall due to unforeseen construction (rain location is Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall). Led by the Band and the Princetoniana Committee, the Class of 2023 will be introduced to traditional Princeton songs and will also sing a selection of contemporary songs of the class' choosing.

As always, orange and black attire is encouraged.

Please RSVP by September 4, 2019
