Keeping with tradition, our farewell dinner was again held at the new chemistry building on the last evening of the 2013 Princeton-CEFRC Summer School. Each year friendships are renewed and new ones are formed as students flock to the summer school. Pictured here, students and lecturers gathered late into the evening to enjoy the last day of summer school.
