Princeton University celebrated the accomplishments of its students with the awarding of four undergraduate prizes at Opening Exercises on Sunday, Sept. 10.

This year’s Freshman First Honor Prize is shared by Grace Sommers and Yanjun Yang. The prize is awarded each year to sophomores in recognition of exceptional achievement during their first year.

Sommers, of Bridgewater, New Jersey, attended Bridgewater-Raritan High School. She plans on pursuing a major in physics and certificates in applications of computing and Roman language and culture.

Yang, of Springfield, New Jersey, attended Millburn High School. He plans to earn a B.S.E. in computer science and certificates in statistics and machine learning and finance.

A member of Mathey College, Yang was an organizer at last year’s HackPrinceton, a weekend-long event in the spring that brings around 500 college students to campus to build hardware and software tools. This year, he will be a co-leader of HackPrinceton’s operations sub-team.
