Princeton’s commitment to admitting high-achieving students from every sector of society has many facets to assist students to, through, and beyond their campus experience. Learn more through the lens of seniors Ana Patricia Esqueda and Naoum Fares Mayarati, and alumnus Samuel Kunitz-Levy ’18.


Ana Patricia Esqueda '19

Ana Patricia Esqueda ’19:

“Nobody in my family has gone to college. The hardest part of being first-generation is that you don’t have anyone at home guiding you. … It’s amazing that I don’t have to worry about the economic side of going to a school like Princeton.”

Naoum Fares Marayati '19

Naoum Fares Marayati ’19:

“I was a teenage boy who escaped the perils of war in my bleeding town of Aleppo, Syria, with big dreams yet small means of achieving them. Today, I belong to the strong community of Tigers — people that bond together over their shared sense of dedication and love of learning.”

“Princeton was the best option for me not only because of the programs here that I wanted to partake in, but also because financially it was the best option as well.”
