A few of us have expressed interest in picking our own delicious apples and pumpkins at nearby Terhune Orchards, which is only a couple of miles (5-10 minutes) from campus. Since the pick-your-own season is ending soon, we’re planning to go picking this weekend, early enough in the day to hopefully miss the crowds.

We will be meeting at the Wawa parking lot (140 University Place, Princeton, NJ) on campus, where you can walk to easily from on-campus graduate housing or park your car for free, at 10:00am on Sunday morning. If you have a car and would like to bring passengers, please let us know. And if you don’t, we already have a few people who have offered rides to others, so send us an email at and we’ll put you in touch. We’re planning to be back on campus by 1:00pm.

Please RSVP to if you would like to come apple & pumpkin picking with us!
