Welcome to Reunions!

A message from Monica Moore Thompson ’89, President of the Alumni Association

Monica Moore Thompson

Dear fellow Princetonians,

Welcome to Reunions 2024! Princeton Reunions is one of the greatest traditions that joins our community across generations and experiences, fostering belonging and unity. It’s always a joyful celebration when Tigers come together. The theme of your Alumni Association recognizes the importance of our individuality and the power of our collective community. I am Princeton. You are Princeton. Together, we are Princeton!

So many people have worked together to create an amazing weekend jam-packed with events and activities. A big locomotive cheer to Reunions chairs and committees for classes and the Association of Princeton Graduate Alumni, as well as to the Advancement staff, volunteers from alumni organizations and campus partners. Plan your time on campus using the comprehensive schedule on this website. You’ll find a wide range of opportunities and attractions, from lectures and lunches to prayer services and panel discussions, from arch sings and athletic events to tours and tent gatherings.

Some highlights: The Alumni-Faculty Forums, a tradition for more than 70 years, bring together distinguished alumni and faculty moderators for lively discussions on 16 intriguing topics, including artificial intelligence, civil discourse, the Supreme Court and world politics. Make time for your favorites on Friday and Saturday.

On Friday at 11 a.m. in Richardson Auditorium, join the Annual Meeting of the Alumni Council, a time to honor this year’s award winners, learn the results of the trustee and young alumni trustee elections and hear updates on the work of the council. On Friday evening at 7 p.m., enter the Trending Tigers Tent in the U-Store Courtyard by following @PrincetonAlumni on Instagram. Enjoy a 360-degree photo booth, a Tiger-spirited selfie hedge, orange-and-black bracelet crafting, charging stations and light snacks.

Start Saturday morning with “A Conversation with President Christopher L. Eisgruber ’83” in Richardson Auditorium, then tap your toes at Cannon Green while listening to the Princeton University Band’s annual Fred E. Fox ’39 Memorial Concert.

At 2 p.m. sharp, join the one and only P-rade, celebrating unity in the orange and black. Check the map on this website or on the Princeton Events App for updates on this year’s route. That evening, find a seat in Powers Field at Princeton Stadium for a concert by the University Orchestra, followed by a dazzling display of fireworks.

Welcome back and enjoy the weekend with fellow Tigers!
