PA3 Wins Awards at Annual Meeting
Student/Alumni Summer Networking Reception
Last year the Princeton Area Alumni Association (PA3) in conjunction with Princeton Career Services hosted a "Careers Seminar and Reception" for undergraduates who were spending the summer at Princeton. Over 50 students and alumni spent quality time discussing options for careers after Princeton. This year the PA3 is teaming with Satomi Chudasama at Career Services to do it again. Over 70 undergrad and grad students have signed up for the event!
Location: Princeton University, Carl A. Fields Center, 58 Prospect Avenue
Date: June 20 (Mon.) 5:30-7:30 PM
What: 10-15 Alumni Panelists needed
Careers: Consulting, Education, Finance, Law, Marketing, Architecture, urban-planning, Medicine/Healthcare, Non-Profits, Volunteerism, Science & Technology, the Arts and more
The event will feature roundtables of alumni from various fields, sharing their insights on how Princeton has prepared them for career options, success, and transitions. Our aim is to break into small groups by industry. The goal is to provoke broad discussions about the vast career choices available to students after Princeton and to exposue students to the diversity of people in them.
What’s in it for alumni?
· Perhaps you can recall when you were a student and how clueless you were about the decisions you were making and the careers you didn’t know about
· Perhaps you have a son or daughter in college
· Perhaps you have an interesting story to tell about your own career path
· Perhaps you are in career interruptus, but are nonetheless quite active
Satomi Chudasama, Kyriaki (Kiki) Karoglou *05 (Chair of PA3 Networking and Careers Committee) and I would like to invite each of you to join the discussion and remain afterwards for our reception. Please let me know if you can be available for this event. Many thanks in advance for your participation.

First Friday Lunch at the Nassau Club - June 3rd, 2011
Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni. 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.
Cate will discuss "Rilke and Chekhov: Translation and (Play)giarism" .
Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) is the little-known first translator of any of Anton Chekhov's dramatic works into the German language. Rilke's contact with the Russian poet Sophia Schill allowed him to obtain handwritten transcriptions of Chekhov's plays, "The Seagull," (1896) and "Uncle Vanya" (1897). Although his translations have been lost, Rilke's understanding of Chekhov survives through his own version of "The Seagull," a short piece called, "Everyday Life." The play premiered in Berlin in 1901, and was later converted into a popular radio-drama in Fascist Germany.
Looking forward to seeing you...in your orange and black!

Climate Change Tiger Talk 5/18/11
Tiger Talk: Climate Change
David Crane ’81, CEO of NRG Energy Inc.
Freeman Dyson, physicist and mathematician, The Institute for Advanced Study
Hiram "Chip" Levy II, Senior Research Scientist - Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory/NOAA on Princeton's Forrestal Campus
The panel will be moderated by George Bustin '70.
After a lively discussion and debate on charter schools in suburbia at its last Tiger Talk, PA3 is switching gears for a Tiger Talk on another heated issue: climate change.
Humans have long suspected that their activities alter the climate they live in. Ancient Greeks, for example, wondered if cutting down trees would affect rainfall. With the discovery of the greenhouse effect in the early 19th century, climate change emerged as an area of more formal scientific inquiry. By the 1950s, scientists largely believed that human activity could influence climate but were unsure if it would have a net cooling or warming effect. The prevailing opinion that human activity caused global warming emerged by the 1970s. Yet despite humans' long history of questioning their effect on climate, a debate still rages among scientists: Is the earth warming, and is man causing it? Can we or should we stop it? How can we prepare?
Following their comments, the panelists will be available for questions from attendees or other panelists.
We ask attendees to respect the fact that this event is an 'off the record' discussion for PA3 members and their guests.
