Frequently Asked Questions

Where will I be sleeping and eating during the small-group experience?

Each CA group will stay off-campus at a retreat center or camp. Accommodations include bunk-beds, access to restrooms and showers on-site. Meals will be provided through a dining or catering service. Specifics regarding your  accommodations will be shared via email prior to CA departure.

Please note, all students participating in CA will need to bring a sleeping bag (or linens) with them for the small-group experience.

If you have had any changes to your accommodation needs since completing your Orientation registration form, please contact orientation@princeton.edu as soon as possible.
 

What should I bring with me?

You should plan to pack one small bag (preferably a duffel bag or small carry on size suitcase) along with your sleeping bag. Please note that you will not be able to access your room during the small-group experience so it will be important that you bring along any item that you may need for the week. A sample packing list will be emailed, but can also be accessed by clicking here.
 

What if I have dietary restrictions or need special accommodations?

If you indicated on your Orientation registration that you had a dietary, medical, religious, or other special need, the CA team has reviewed that information and taken it into consideration for your small-group experience placement. We regularly work with students who keep kosher or halaal, have allergies to nuts, gluten intolerance and other dietary preferences, or require disability accommodations.

If you have had any changes to your accommodation needs since completing your Orientation registration form, please contact orientation@princeton.edu as soon as possible.
 

When will I meet my CA Orientation Leaders and other small-group members?

At the CA Kick-off on Sunday night at Richardson Auditorium. Make sure that you check your Orientation schedule for exact time.
