1. Buses to Princeton v. Yale Football! 2. Hurricane Sandy Volunteer Efforts
1. Get Fired Up: Princeton v. Yale–Battle for the Bonfire!
Your USG has been working hard in collaboration with ODUS to organize 10 buses to take ~550 students to watch our Princeton Tigers take on the Yale Bulldogs in New Haven. The chance for the first Bonfire since 2006 hangs in the balance, so don’t miss this chance to cheer on Princeton Football!
Why a Bonfire? Check out Bonfire History Here. Spark Notes: If our football team beats Harvard and Yale in the same season, the whole university celebrates around a huge bonfire! Before 2006, the last bonfire was 12 years before, so let’s help our Tigers cut that time in half by cheering them on!
