Alumni Traditions

Traditions have also grown out of experiences of alumni who, long after they have graduated, still connect to current students and to campus. One of the newest examples is the Pre-rade, conceived by alumni of the Princetoniana Committee and inspired by the alumni P-rade. After Opening Exercises freshmen process from the chapel through FitzRandolph Gate and then gather to learn Princeton's alma mater "Old Nassau" under the tutelage of other students and alumni.
