Hey Princeton! The prefrosh activities fair was hoppin’ on Friday afternoon. It was a sea of orange lanyards, Princeton drawstring backpacks (why didn’t we get those last year??), and, of course, the overwhelmed prefrosh. Oh, and a bunch of crazy people yelling at the prefrosh to join their club/activity/sports team/[insert group here].
Here are some DOs and DON’Ts, for both prefrosh from this past Preview weekend and those coming next weekend:
DO: Sign up for a lot of clubs you’re interested in.
DON’T: Sign up for every single club because you’ll regret the 5,000 emails later on (although you can always unsubscribe).
DO: Ask club members questions to find out more information about the club.
DON’T: Be overwhelmed when all the older students attack you so that you join their club. It’s Tiger love.
DO: Keep an open mind. Always wanted to learn about hypnosis? Sign up for the Princeton Hypnosis Club (yes, this club really does exist).
DON’T: Belittle your abilities. If you like to sing but only your shower head recognizes your talent, please don’t be afraid to try out for an a cappella groups anyways.
DO: Stay on a club’s email listserv for a bit, even if you decide not to join that club. It’s always interesting to know what other clubs are up to, and you may change your mind about not joining.
DON’T: Be that kid who hits “Reply-All” saying, “Please remove me from the list.” Don’t do it.
DON’T: Not sign up for the University Press Club.
