Volunteer to Interview Prospective Students!

Every year the Alumni Schools Committee (ASC) accomplishes the incredible feat of offering every Princeton applicant a chance to interview with an alumnus.  However, this cannot happen without your help!

The college interview season is rapidly approaching, and Karen Packtor '90, the newly-minted chair for the Eastern Connecticut ASC is recruiting volunteers!  Email her right away (kpacktor@casciac.org) to be added to her list of interviewers, or simply fill out the form on this page!

The work of the ASC does make a difference.  A local newspaper in one of our southern US regions reported last year that a high school student who had been accepted at virtually all of the most selective schools in the country chose Princeton and his decision was based on the positive impression of Princeton that was forged through his contacts with local alumni in his interview and at the ASC post-admit reception he attended.

Also, please be assured that Karen will make every effort to assign applicants that will be geographically convenient for you!  Last year, each interviewer was assigned six applicants on average, but with some aggressive recruiting efforts this year, Karen hopes to reduce that number.  Please note that alumnae/alumni who have a child, grandchild or sibling applying to Princeton must recuse themselves from interviewing (just for the year in which the application is pending).  Finally, on behalf of the ASC, Karen would like to thank you for your past and/or future efforts for Princeton and for the next generation of Princetonians!

November 5th - Hockey vs Yale

The Princeton men's hockey team kicks off the ECAC Hockey portion of its schedule TONIGHT AT 7PM, as the Tigers look for an upset against reigning ECAC Champion Yale in New Haven. While it will be the third straight game in Ingalls Rink for the Tigers (after the 'Ivy Shootout' last weekend) it will be the Tiger’s first game this season against the primary tenant.

Photo by Beverly Schefer;
Yale opened its season last weekend with a pair of seven-goal outbursts against Brown and Dartmouth, and the Tigers lost a pair of closely fought 2-1 decisions to the same teams. The Bulldogs are currently ranked fifth in the national polls and were the ECAC preseason favorites, but the strong Tiger “D” and goaltending will keep them in the game.

Alan Rosner '76, who personally bought the tickets, still has several left!! Please come out and support the Tigers. Tickets can be picked up before the game at the rink, but please give Alan a call or drop him an email and let him know how many you can use. Let’s show the Tigers some support.
