Humanities Mentor Frances Mangina Selected as Salutatorian

April 29, 2022

Frances Mangina, a philosophy concentrator from Toronto, was named salutatorian of Princeton’s Class of 2022. The Princeton faculty accepted the nominations of the Faculty Committee on Examinations and Standing at its April 25 meeting.

She has been a Humanities Mentor since 2019. Housed in the Program in Humanistic Studies, Humanities Mentors offer advice to undergraduates about the humanities at Princeton, including the Humanistic Studies certificate, as well as course selection, extracurriculars, and international experiences.

“Studying the humanities at Princeton has brought joy to my life and shaped the way I see the world,” Mangina said, in an announcement on the University homepage. “My mental reading list also becomes longer by the day, which is exciting (if slightly daunting).”

In the fall, Mangina will pursue a master’s degree in ancient philosophy at Oxford University, funded by the highly competitive Ertegun Scholarship, before beginning a doctoral degree in philosophy at the University of Chicago.
