    Annual Schools Committee

    The Princeton Alumni Association of Houston, one of the largest Princeton alumni associations in the US with a region that spans from Bryan/College Station all the way to Galveston. Last year we had 550+ applicants to Princeton from our region, and we are committed to continuing to interview 100% of those applicants that want interviews.

    WE NEED YOUR HELP to make sure we continue to send a strong contingent of Houstonians to Princeton!  We have a great group of volunteers, many of whom regularly interview a full slate of students, but we need more interviewers.  If you are not already doing so, I urge you to become a volunteer with our regional ASC. Each member normally interviews three applicants per year, with each interview averaging 30 minutes in length. Personally, I have found the interviews to be fascinating - applicants to Princeton are academically accomplished, intellectually curious and excel in a wide variety of areas - as well as a lot of fun.

    If you would like to become an interviewer and serve as an ambassador of the University to our local community, please register now to Become an Interviewer! and help the ASC meet our goal of having 200 interviewers.

      Princeton Pre-Read Event in Houston - Book Discussion

      Engage in the intellectual life of the university without ever leaving Houston, by participating in our first annual Princeton Pre-Read event.  We will read the book assigned by Princeton’s President Eisgruber to all incoming freshmen; and then gather over refreshments to watch short videos of the on-campus discussion with the author, followed by our own discussions.

      The incoming class of 2023 book, “Stand Out of Our Light: Freedom and Resistance in the Attention Economy,” was written by James Williams, who recently received his Ph.D. from the University of Oxford, focusing on the philosophy of attention and persuasion in technology design. Previously, Williams worked for a decade at Google as a technology and business strategist.  The book presents a rigorous and original argument about the profound influence of digital technology on human attention and democratic political competence. President Eisgruber hopes that Stand Out of Our Light will inspire discussion and debate about the ways in which this digital landscape is affecting our ability to shape our identities, lives, and societies

      View President Eisgruber’s video introduction for the book.

      Get the book at your local Houston Public Library, Harris County Public Library, Brazos Bookstore, or Amazon. 

      Refreshments at 6:30 pm
      Discussion begins at 7:00 pm

      Location:  Hanover Rice Village, Media Room - 2455 Dunstan Rd., Houston, TX 77005
