TT Taylor Hopper & Bennett Alvaro 8-21-13

Layton: “The thing I’m most looking forward to is all of the clubs we have here at Princeton. I think that’s what really sets the college experience apart. I’m on our sailing team and our tryout team. So, a lot of those clubs are really fun to be a part of. I’m really excited to get back together with those teams and start participating in all of those activities.”
Bennett: “I’m looking forward to not being a freshman anymore. Getting to be a member of the community here at Princeton and actually knowing what I’m doing, where I’m going, what I want to do when I get older, and not just trying to find my way anymore as much as kind of figuring out how to get to where I want to be later in life – it’s a great feeling.”
