What could be a better welcome to America than carving pumpkins? That's what Matt Weiner, Princeton University's associate dean of religious life, and Patrick Barry, director of refugee and immigration services for Catholic Charities in Camden, New Jersey, were thinking when they brought 25 refugee youths to carve pumpkins with Princeton students one sunny Saturday in October. The refugees were mainly from Syria and Myanmar, and the Princeton students were from the Class of 2019.  Learn more about Princeton students and refugee youths coming together.
