Service of Remembrance
Held during Alumni Day on February 25, this year’s Service of Remembrance will honor the alumni, students and members of the Princeton University faculty and staff whose deaths were recorded by the University during 2022.
Leave a Virtual Carnation
In memory and honor of beloved Princetonians, you can post a “virtual carnation” — a memorial message — honoring a departed loved one.
History of Alumni Day
First observed on Lincoln’s birthday in 1915, the day drew 100 alumni to what the PAW called “an intellectual pilgrimage” to Princeton. From 1916 to 1955, it was on Washington’s birthday; thereafter, it has been on the Saturday nearest February 22.
