PUPP hosts a number of events throughout the year for scholars and their families beginning with the Orientation session and concluding with the Graduation Ceremony. Our Orientation session held every spring introduces newly selected scholars and their families to the rules and expectations one is expected to uphold as a PUPP scholar. We begin each summer with a formal Opening Ceremony in Princeton University’s Chapel where we introduce the newest cohort of PUPP Scholars and welcome returning scholars and families to the campus community. As the summer institute encounters its midway point, PUPP hosts a Parent’s Night inviting families onto Princeton’s campus to meet with PUPP faculty and learn about the courses and activities scholars have been taking throughout the summer. We wrap up each summer institute with a Closing Ceremony where scholars present highlights from their summer experience. Lastly, PUPP hosts the Graduation Ceremony toward the end of the school year to recognize the achievements of the graduating seniors and highlight their college commitments.

Below we have a series of photos welcoming new scholars and their families into the PUPP community at Orientation and the Opening Ceremony, welcoming returning scholars for another exciting year, celebrating the hard work made by our scholars throughout the Summer Institute as well as acknowledging and celebrating our graduating scholars as they embark on their college journey.
