We welcome all, women and men, boys and girls,
to this evening of provocative discussion
and enjoyable networking.

The film explores how the media's misrepresentations of women have led 
to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence.

For the Princeton Alumni that graduated before 2007, the “Pagoda Courts” were torn down in 2003 to make room for Whitman College.  These courts were used by the University and local community for over 40 years.  The Pagoda was moved to the Lenz Tennis Center, which is located adjacent to the softball fields near the South Guard Booth. 

Please note, we will do our best to accommodate a range of t-shirt sizes. But due to cost considerations and timing, we cannot guarantee that your exact size will be available.

PA3 First Friday Lunch

First Friday Lunch at the Nassau Club - April 6th, 2012

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon buffet at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!

Theodor Brasoveanu, a graduate student in the Physics Department, will discuss his research on critical phenomena in gravitational collapse, in particular his studies of stars driven to the brink of black hole formation. The framework is Einstein's famous theory of general relativity, which explains how space and time are "curved" in the presence of matter. Given the complexity of the equations governing gravitational systems, a lot of effort goes into finding numerical solutions in order to decipher their message in the most interesting cases.  Theodor assured us that even the non-physicists among us will understand his talk! 

Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes the Nassau Club’s full buffet as well as a complementary beverage (wine, beer, soft drink). Pre-registration is required. 

>> Looking forward to seeing your orange and black! <<

Date: Friday, April 6th, 2012
Time: 12 noon - 2 pm
Location: Nassau Club, 6 Mercer St, Princeton, NJ
Nassau Club membership is not necessary to attend this event.

PA3 and the Princetoniana Committee Need Your Help

Last summer PA3 teamed up with the Alumni Association's Princetoniana Committee to conduct interviews with alums from the 1940s. Those interviews, focused on the alums' experiences at Princeton, form a part of a larger body of oral history of our beloved alma mater housed in the University Archives at Mudd Library. Of the old guard interviews conducted thus far, a common thread is recurring mention of a few professors, fondly remembered even after many decades, as truly outstanding scholars and teachers. The existing oral history transcript library includes interviews with several venerable professors, and the PA3 and Princetoniana Committee are very interested in adding to it by identifying and interviewing those professors that truly stand out in the memories of alumni, both undergraduate and graduate.

Consequently, you could do us a great service by giving some thought to your Princeton experience and replying with the names of any cherished professors, including a short explanation of what subject they taught and why they stand out so plainly in memory. We will use this input to help guide us in the selection of professors emeriti to interview. Please respond to Tom Swift '76 or call him at 908-369-1601. Thank you.
