International Orientation & Student Support Services

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Office of Multicultural Relations, I congratulate you on your admission to Princeton Theological Seminary! We would be extremely honored to have you as a student within our diverse and unique community. Message To Upcoming Students

I know that coming to a distant community requires all sorts of preparation. In addition to the joys of anticipation there are prayerful as well as sad “farewells.” May it be heartening for you to know that you will have colleagues here from every continent and many faithful churches. Also, be assured that the staff at Princeton Seminary will assist you in any way they can with the details and issues related to your studies.

A major component in your transition to life here at Princeton Theological Seminary will be the required International Orientation Program that will take place from August 28 through September 2, 2013. This program will assist you to become acquainted with the Seminary procedures, introduce you to other students, staff, and professors, and give you a sense of what living in Princeton is like.

We have assembled an amazing cohort of students and staff who are preparing for a fruitful program and I wish to introduce to you Mr. Jonathan Reinink who will be our International Orientation Program coordinator. Jon is one of our students, who came to us from Canada and is in our dual degree program. If you need any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us at

Warm regards,

The Reverend Victor Aloyo, Jr.

Director, Office of Multicultural Relations

Welcome to Princeton Seminary.

We are pleased that you have decided to join our campus community! We have prepared the following booklet entitled: INTERNATIONAL STUDENT GUIDE TO LIVING IN PRINCETON THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY to assist you in getting acquainted with your new environment. A booklet can only give you a few items of information and suggestions. You will have many questions and will need people to turn to. You will find other international and domestic students very understanding and helpful, and there will be people who live near you who will be good resources.

I invite you to regard the Office of Multicultural Relations as a place to bring your questions and concerns during your stay here! Ms. Chinyere Harris, the administrative assistant, Ms. Cheryl A. Huston, the International Students Enrollment and Services assistant, and I are very interested in your welfare and wish to help you have a productive and happy experience at Princeton. You can find us at 201 Templeton Hall.

Videos are available which will introduce you to the life of the campus through the eyes of other international students and show you interviews with various members of the administration who explain how their offices can assist you. You can view these videos at the media center in Templeton Hall; just ask for the new student orientation videos at the media center desk.

We are looking forward to your presence and participation in our seminary community. May God keep you in grace and bless you richly. If you wish for more information please do not hesitate to contact us at
