Special events mark installation celebration

Princeton NJ -- The Sept. 28 installation celebration for President Tilghman will begin with an academic procession and end with dancing under the stars. In between, there will be speeches, food and a special concert by performer and Princeton native Mary Chapin Carpenter.

The installation ceremony is open to the general public and will begin at 3:30 p.m. on the front lawn of Nassau Hall. Faculty members who wish to participate in the procession are to line up at 3 p.m. on the walkway between West College and Cannon Green. Guests are asked to be seated by 3:15 p.m., so that the procession can begin at 3:20 p.m.

The ceremony will include an invocation, and greetings from members of the University community and President Richard Levin of Yale University, as well as an address by Tilghman.

Following the ceremony, activities will move to Weaver Track and Field Stadium on the north side of Jadwin Gymnasium. Semi-formal attire is suggested for the evening, and orange and black are encouraged.

The evening events are open to members of the University community. No tickets are required, but those wishing to attend have been asked to complete an electronic reply form on the Web at <web.princeton.edu/sites/vp&sec/installation> or to send a note by e-mail to <presinst@princeton.edu> or by campus mail to the Office of the Vice President and Secretary, One Nassau Hall.

The emcee for the evening's program will be 1971 Princeton alumnus and trustee A. Scott Berg, who was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his 1998 biography of aviator Charles Lindbergh.

Beginning at 5:30 p.m, hors d'oeuvres will be served in the stadium and a buffet will open in the gymnasium. Tables and chairs for dining will be set up in the stadium, where Princeton's a cappella groups will sing from 6 to 7 p.m.

Tilghman will briefly address the assembly at 7 p.m., after which Carpenter will perform. The Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter is an honorary member of the Princeton class of 1949, of which her father, Chapin Carpenter, is a member.

Following the concert, music for dancing will be provided in Weaver Stadium by D.J. Bob and the Jacques Johnson Band.
