COMMENCEMENT WEEKEND MAY 30-31, 2020
Graduation weekend for the Class of 2020 will be May 30-31. If you are coming from a distance and need a hotel room, please make a reservation as soon as possible. This is a busy weekend in the Princeton area, and the hotels have all raised their prices and are filling quickly. In fact, some hotels are not blocking rooms for these dates since they coincide with Princeton’s reunion weekend.
