Organized by the Office of Community and Regional Affairs, the annual Community and Staff Day featured a Family Fun Fest at Princeton Stadium. Several local nonprofits and University departments set up booths with crafts, music, face painting, bounce houses and games throughout the stadium concourse. University student-athletes hosted a youth sports clinic — including baseball, basketball, crew, fencing, lacrosse, softball and track and field, among others — on Weaver Track next to the stadium. The fun concluded with the Princeton football team's home opener against Lafayette College, to which 12,000 area residents received free tickets. After the game — which Princeton won, 35 to 31 — fireworks lit up the sky.  Learn more about Community and Staff Day.
