<pre><code>* Arch Sings - Free late night concerts in one of the larger arches on campus offered by one or a few of Princeton's fourteen a capella groups
* Bonfire - ceremonial bonfire, held only if Princeton beats both Harvard and Yale at football in the same season
* Beer jackets - Each graduating class (and each class at its multiple-of-5 reunion thereafter -- 5th, 10th, etc.) designs a Beer jacket featuring their class year. The artwork is almost invariably dominated by the school colors, orange and black, and often features some kind of tiger-striping images of tigers.
* Bicker - Competitive weeklong selection process employed by certain eating clubs for selecting members.
* Cane Spree - an athletic competition between freshmen and sophomores held in the fall
* The Clapper or Clapper Theft - climbing to the top of Nassau Hall and stealing the bell clapper so as to prevent the bell from ringing and, thus, from starting class on the first day of the school year. For safety reasons, the clapper has now been removed permanently.

* Dean's Date Theater - tradition of gathering late in the afternoon on Dean's Date (see below under "Lingo") outside McCosh Hall to watch other students run to hand in their papers before the final deadline. Some students perform cartwheels and other antics (if they are not running too late).
* FitzRandolph Gate - at the end of Princeton's graduation ceremony, the new graduates process out through the main gate of the university as a symbol of their leaving college and entering the real world.
