Student Athlete Handbook
Department of Athletics
2015-16 STUDENT-ATHLETE HANDBOOK
It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Princeton Athletics family. Those of you who are returning know what a special and unique opportunity it is to be a Princeton University student, and what an honor it is to represent the Orange and Black as a student-athlete.
As an administration, we are committed to supporting your growth and success not only in sports, but also in life. Our mission of "Education through Athletics" guides us in everything that we do. Intercollegiate Athletics serves as an extension of the overall educational mission of Princeton University. For the individual students who participate in athletics, Princeton's goal is that you be both students and athletes - "student athletes" - in the fullest sense of the phrase. Princeton's competitive athletics programs are intended to encourage in their participants a desire for excellence, respect for colleagues, fair play, teamwork, leadership, perseverance, and integrity.
Our goal is to provide you with the resources and support you need to be successful at Princeton and beyond. Within the pages of this handbook you will find information on Athletics resources, policies and practices. The document is not exhaustive by any means and may lead to more questions. We encourage that!
Again, welcome to another academic year at Princeton University. We hope your experience here is rewarding in every way possible!
