February 5th - Young Alumni Happy Hour (plus many other Happy Hours!)

Our semesterly happy hours have been getting a good response, but no time works well for everyone who would like to go, so our solutions is...more of them! Here's the first:

Join us at 6:30 at Prime 16 in New Haven (map) for drinks on Wednesday, February 5th. We also have an 8:00pm reservation for dinner; email Matthew '09 to reserve a spot: mhalgren@gmail.com. You can also find this event on Facebook!

Of course, we will still have our semesterly PAAEC Young Alumni Happy Hour (April 10th this year) but have now added an All-Alumni Happy Hour (March 4th this year) as well as two events simply for those Princetonians who enjoy the company of their fellow tigers. Schedule (with tentative locations) below:

January 17th - A Beautiful Mind

We're also excited about a new initiative to have a smattering of small young alumni (YA) events throughout the year. For now, come watch A Beautiful Mind, hosted by Jakub *13 at 7pm this Friday (the 17th) on the 6th floor of 360 State St (map). Drop Jakub a line via email (jakub.szefer@gmail.com) to let him know if you can come! We'll be publishing a full list of YA events in the near future.

We need your help with interviews!

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, and this year we are especially short-staffed to interview the number of applicants from our region; if you can even spare time to interview ONE applicant, it would be a huge help. Karen Packtor '90, the chair for the Eastern Connecticut ASC is recruiting volunteers; email her right away at kpacktor@casciac.org!

As we've said before, 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. So what are you waiting for? Email Karen!
