Before you hit the stadium, hit the classroom!

Prior to a number of home football games, the Alumni Association provides alumni and friends with a chance to sample intellectual life on campus prior to catching up with classmates at tailgates and cheering on the Tigers on the gridiron.

All alumni, friends and members of the Princeton community are invited to the following Fall Football lectures:

  • Saturday, October 22, 2016 v. Harvard University
