The Princeton Alumni Weekly (PAW) publishes 15 times per year, more often than any other alumni magazine. PAW’s online version, www.princeton.edu/paw, offers additional material and a searchable archive of articles and Class Notes.

Throughout the world, Princeton’s 160 regional associations keep alumni connected to the University and each other.

It’s easy to find your local regional association.

Princeton alumni can also maintain their ties to the University by affiliation: gender, ethnicity or a particular interest. Like the Regional Associations, these groups actively organize programs for socializing, networking, and community service. For information about these groups, call the Alumni Association at 609-258-1900 or search the Alumni Association Web site at http://alumni.princeton.edu.

The Association of Princeton Graduate Alumni (APGA) is like an undergraduate class—it is the primary affiliation with the University, connecting approximately 22,000 graduate alumni (more than 25% of Princeton’s alumni body) with the Princeton community around the globe and offering intellectual, professional and social opportunities for graduate alumni and current graduate students.

the game

First observed on Lincoln’s birthday in 1915, this Saturday in February brings alumni of every age and interest back to campus.

Princeton’s version of homecoming occurs in the fall on the Saturday of the home football game against Harvard or Yale, depending on the schedule. Some classes organize a pre-game tailgate near Jadwin, others arrange for lunch inside Jadwin. Your class or APGA officers will have details.
