Vision
Student Agencies is committed to providing undergraduates with unique opportunities in entrepreneurship through leadership of University-endorsed businesses, which support student and campus life at Princeton.

History
The Princeton Student Agencies have provided goods and services for the University community (faculty, staff, and students) since the early 1900's. Initially, they were established to help undergraduates in need of financial assistance earn money for school, as an important part of the Student Employment Office. The Agencies have continued to grow over their long history, and now there are 15 established agencies offering valuable products and services to the university community. Today, there are over 250 student directors and student workers who participate in the program. Princeton Student Agencies are an integral part of the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students, providing students entrepreneurial and hands-on management experience.
