Princeton University Alumni Association

The Princeton University Alumni Association will celebrate its 175th anniversary on Nov. 10.

• When the Alumni Association of Nassau Hall, as it was called, was founded in 1826, its mission was "to promote the interests of the College and the friendly intercourse of its graduates."

• In the early years, the organization's emphasis was on collecting funds for the endowment of professorships. Today, the association provides programs ranging from Alumni Colleges to TigerNet, with activities available through the Association of Princeton Graduate Alumni as well as more than a dozen other affiliated groups, more than 70 active classes and more than 125 active regional associations around the world.

• All Princeton alumni are automatically members of the Alumni Association. Currently, there are more than 72,000 living Princeton alumni
