Welcome! On this blog will be posted information on upcoming PAAEC events, photos of past events, and other information that may be of interest to tigers in our alumni region. Check out this brochure to get a feel for what we do, and please email PrincetonAAEC@gmail.com if you have questions, suggestions, or images to contribute to the site!
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 (email@example.com) 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!
