About the Princeton Club of Philadelphia
The Princeton Club of Philadelphia (PCOP) is one of the oldest Princeton regional alumni associations. Founded in 1868, PCOP sponsors a wide variety of events and activities throughout the year for Princeton's alumni, students and parents.
The Club is widely recognized as one of the University's most active alumni groups. We are committed to offering Tigers of all ages many of the top resources needed for professional growth and networking, in addition to cultural, community service and social activities that bring value to your lives. PCOP exists to serve alumni like you, both through the events and activities the Club sponsors as well as the opportunity it provides for you to get to know other Princeton alums through both traditional and social networking.
PCOP’s mission is to promote the interests of Princeton University and her greater Philadelphia area alumni as well as those of current and prospective students. We also endeavor to promote good fellowship among Philadelphia-area Princeton alumni and to enhance and deepen connections between alumni, Princeton University and the Philadelphia community.
Our three main strategic initiatives are to:
· -Develop relationships with one another
· -Create ties with Princeton University
· -Deepen our connection to the Philadelphia community
PCOP is very fortunate to have a dedicated leadership group and a growing network of volunteers to sponsor and support our activities. On an on-going basis, the Club does the following on behalf of Princeton and our Philadelphia community:
· -Fosters social and professional interaction among members by organizing Career Networking Nights, Princeton Women’s Network events, Young Alumni happy hours, sporting events and activities with other college alumni clubs. . Our website also features a Members Only Directory.
-Supports the University by annually interviewing applicants to Princeton through our Alumni Schools Committee, hosting the New Admits reception to meet and interact with new Tigers, and sponsoring the awards ceremony for the Princeton Prize in Race Relations.
· -Embodies Princeton's spirit of service through our volunteering at Ronald McDonald House and other area non-profit organizations; support of and involvement in the non-profit mentoring and internship program known as AlumniCorp (formerly Princeton Project 55); educational colloquia such as the Education Reform and the Breaking the Cycle of Violence forums; and sponsorship of the Princeton Summer Internship Program. The Club also supports continuing education by bringing Princeton faculty and administrators to the area and organizing talks by alumni and other speakers.
· -Builds awareness of programs and services through our club website, emails, social networking pages and periodic newsletters.
We hope to see you at many Princeton Club events throughout the year. Our goal is to provide something for everyone. If you don’t see it, please suggest it!
