Moments before the start of Princeton's June 1 Commencement ceremony, PAW asked several graduates to describe their best day at Princeton. Here's what they said.
Jorge Reyes ’10, electrical engineering
"The day the politics softball team won the A-League championship -- we beat chemistry. ... In my department, some people will be proud and some people will be appalled that I just said that."
David Glick *10, politics
Adam Harris ’10, politics
"The day I turned in my thesis. I'm sure that's a popular one."
Jane McClintock ’10, religion

Joel Peterson ’10, ecology and evolutionary biology
(Peterson earned an A for his thesis on cancer's effects on the brain.)
