Nassau Hall Faculty Room Tour
ENTER THE INNER SANCTUM
You Have Never Seen Nassau Hall Like This!
Please join us as PA3 presents an exclusive, private, and guided visit to Princeton’s Faculty Room in Nassau Hall on Tuesday, April 30 from 5 -6 pm. Open free of charge to all PA3 members* but rsvp required by Monday, April 29. Rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Faculty Room in Nassau Hall has been called “the symbolic center of the university” by Professor Karl Kusserow, author of “Inner Sanctum, Memory and Meaning in Princeton’s Faculty Room” and John Wilmerding Curator of American Art at the University Art Museum. The portraits displayed there “create a distinct historical narrative” and their story is echoed in the room itself. Professor Kusserow will lead us through an exploration of the history and significance of one of the most iconic spaces on the Princeton campus – and one which many alumni have never seen. Portraits of George Washington at the Battle of Princeton, of James Madison, John Witherspoon and of other past Princeton presidents back to our origins as a college -- not to mention those of England’s King George II and of William of Nassau -- will delight and inform PA3 members. Open to all PA3 members (*Annual membership starts at $20 for Young Alumni. To join, go to: https://www.princetonaaa.org/dues) and please remember to RSVP.

An Evening of Winetasting
Join PA3 alumni
Evening of Winetasting
in Vino Diversitas!
The global wine world has been homogenizing into a monotonous palette of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Merlot. These are great grapes, but Vineyards everywhere have literally been uprooting their local grapes, with their funky, foxy, unique taste and millennia of history just to make a wine that is indistinguishable from a wine from halfway around the planet.
Wednesday's wine tasting will focus on rediscovering wine that doesn't all taste like it's all produced by Gallo. Wine that matches a broad spectrum of culinary delicacies. Wine that doesn't all taste like it comes out of the same box or barrel. Wine that is fun, and pushes the extremes along all five senses, as well as the sense of humor.

PA3 INVITES YOU TO “SECOND TUESDAYS”
A PRINCETON PROPELLER EVENT
AT QUADRANGLE CLUB
NAVIGATORS & THE CURIOUS
Please Join Us for Cocktails & Hors d’oeuvres
33 PROSPECT AVENUE – PRINCETON, NJ
6 P, TUESDAY, March 12th, 2019
Speaker: Andrew Voros, Rutgers ’80

“Recent Developments in Photocatalysis for Air Pollution Abatement
And Self-Cleaning Exteriors: Passive, Affordable, Green, Sustainable”
Photocatalysis, the initiation of a reaction by light, has long held promise for commercial applications across numerous environmental systems: air purification, contaminant remediation, water disinfection, and biofilm inhibition. When harnessed to turn interior & exterior surfaces (windows, lighting fixtures, textiles, building materials, solar panels) into passive reactors capable of self-cleaning --- this technology improves air quality. After a brief overview of key developments in the field, Andrew will discuss: the latest third-generation applications that employ nano titanium dioxide; methods to quantify their effectiveness; and their positive impacts on human health.
