Princeton, NJ/ September 5, 2019/ Patch — Princeton University freshman volunteered their time to helping seniors at Brandywine Living as part of the school’s Community Action Program.

“I think this is a wonderful idea, it gives first year students a chance to become familiar with their College community,” said Brandywine resident and Princeton University Alumni Sheldon Sutcliffe.

This is the third year Brandywine Living in Princeton have partnered with the University. While at Brandywine students engaged in the Escapades Program with the seniors.

The Community Action Program is a week-long service orientation program that is designed to facilitate the transition to college by introducing first-year students to the values, expectations, and resources of the inclusive Princeton community.

During their time in the program, first-year students are introduced to meaningful service and have the opportunity to connect with and learn from community partners and organizations.
