    Outdoor Action creates lasting friendships, eases transition to college life

    Kayaking and canoeing in Breakneck Pond, laughing and living in the moment, nine first-year students are beginning their Princeton journey together at Harriman State Park in New York. The group is participating in one of the 75 Outdoor Action trips taking place this week before Opening Exercises on Sunday.
