Alumni-Faculty Forums

A Reunions tradition for over 40 years, the Alumni-Faculty Forums (AFFs) bring together alumni panelists from the major reunion classes and the Association of Princeton Graduate Alumni (APGA) for discussions of a broad range of timely or timeless topics. Moderated by members of the faculty or administration, the forums attract thousands of alumni and guests each year.

Community Auditing Program (CAP)

Princeton University's Community Auditing Program (CAP) enables members of the community, and alumni in the area to audit, or sit in on, University lectures on a non-credit basis. On average, 150-175 classes are available across all academic fields each semester for auditing. No credit or certification is given for CAP classes. However, certified teachers currently working in New Jersey and Au Pairs may obtain written verification for classes they have audited. Questions about the CAP program can be sent to: pucap@princeton.edu.

Game Day Lectures

Before you hit the stadium, hit the classroom! Prior to selected home football games, the Alumni Association provides alumni and friends with a chance to sample intellectual life on campus before catching up with classmates at tailgates and cheering on the Tigers on the gridiron. Registration is not required for the lecture.

Pre-read

The Pre-read program, initiated by President Eisgruber in 2013, introduces new students to Princeton’s vibrant intellectual life. Members of the incoming class join together to read and discuss a book that President Eisgruber selects and sends to new students prior to their arrival on campus. First year students then participate in Pre-read discussions with student leaders during Orientation Week and with President Eisgruber over the course of the academic year.

All alumni are invited to participate in the pre-read tradition by hosting regional, class, or affinity events to discuss the book selection with fellow tigers. You may order books for your alumni event by submitting a Pre-read book request form below.

Every Day the River Changes book cover


2022 Pre-read

President Eisgruber's Princeton Pre-read selection for the Class of 2026 is “Every Day the River Changes: Four Weeks Down the Magdalena” by Jordan Salama, a graduate of Princeton’s Class of 2019. The book is based on Salama’s senior thesis, in which he recounts his experiences as he traveled along the Magdalena River in Colombia describing the people he met and the cultures he encountered during his travels with a distinctive warmth and empathy. President Eisgruber hopes that “Every Day the River Changes” will inspire students “to think imaginatively and creatively about what you might do with your time at Princeton.”
