Welcome to Reunions!

Welcome to Reunions!

A message from Mary J. Newburn ’97, President of the Alumni Association 

Mary J. Newburn ’97

Dear fellow Princetonians,

Welcome back to campus for Reunions 2023! After serving as president of your Alumni Association for the last two years, I see that three facets shine brightly throughout the alumni journey — community, connection and continuity. They are also on full display during Reunions weekend when we gather to celebrate being Princetonians at the Best Old Place of All!

Your class and Association of Princeton Graduate Alumni reunion chairs, along with the Alumni Engagement staff, volunteers from alumni organizations and campus partners have worked tirelessly to create an extraordinary weekend. Throughout this website, you will find a comprehensive schedule of events and activities, which include class and departmental panels and receptions, athletic contests, student performances and community service projects. These events, along with other Reunions updates, are available on the print version and on the Princeton Events app.

A Reunions tradition for more than 65 years, the Alumni-Faculty Forums will cover topics from climate change to the business of sports to national security to the Supreme Court, among others. The 14 panels planned for Friday and Saturday will feature distinguished alumni and faculty moderators. You don’t want to miss these compelling discussions.

On Friday at 11 a.m. in Richardson Auditorium, please join the Annual Meeting of the Alumni Council to honor this year’s award winners, hear the results of the Trustee and Young Alumni Trustee elections, and receive updates on the work of the Alumni Council. That evening at 7 p.m. plan to stop by the U-Store Courtyard to check out the new social media-inspired tent called “Trending Tigers Tent: Recharge Here,” featuring a 360° photo booth, charging stations, lounge furnishings and light snacks.

Following President Eisgruber’s Saturday morning alumni address in Richardson Auditorium, consider stopping by the Princeton University Band’s Fred E. Fox ’39 Memorial Concert, always a family favorite.

And at 2 p.m. get ready for the one and only P-rade. Check the map on the site for the new P-rade route. For the grand finale, don’t miss the spectacular orchestra concert and fireworks later that evening with seating in Powers Field at Princeton Stadium.

Enjoy the weekend and welcome back, Tigers!
