Meet a Pre-Frosh: Sam Wohns

What’s your name?
Sam Wohns

Where are you from?
Grand Rapids, Michigan

What is the one most important thing you do outside of school?
“Let’s see … I’m the Youth Governor of Michigan Youth in Government.”

Other than Princeton, what schools are you considering?
“Harvard and Stanford. Columbia, less so.”

What makes you want to attend Princeton?
“The focus on undergrad really differentiates it from other highly selective institutions … Oh, and the “bridge year” program. If I didn’t get in, I’d be taking a gap year anyway.”

What makes you want to attend one of those other schools?
About Harvard: “The biggest factor for me is the city.”

What are you looking forward to learning this weekend?
“I was really unsure about the whole eating club scene. I was attracted to it, but I wasn’t really sure how it fit into daily life.”

How do you feel about the color orange?
“I’m not really excited to get my t-shirts that say Princeton, because orange just doesn’t work for me.”

I like this guy.

Sam, good answers. Do yourself a favor and pick Princeton. Hope to see you here next year.

If orange isn't your thing, you're in luck because the U-Store has lots of shirts that feature orange in minimally-invasive, yet proudly Princetonian ways.

Of course, orange is a color that grows on you!
