About the Princeton Club of Washington

The Princeton Club of Washington, DC (PCW) was founded in 1872 to provide a home for alumni, students, and parents in the DC metropolitan area. Today, PCW is one of Princeton’s leading regional associations and serves a rich and vibrant alumni community. 

We offer programs and events for Tigers of all stripes, from book talks and lectures, to formal and informal social gatherings, to networking opportunities, cultural events, and community service. 

Some of our ongoing programs include: 

  • Supporting the University and the admissions process by interviewing Princeton applicants and hosting the New Admits reception through the Alumni Schools Committee and sponsoring the awards ceremony for the Princeton Prize in Race Relations
  • Serving our local community through regular volunteering shifts at DC food banks and other nonprofits, our annual Adopt-a-Family project that supports dozens of families through the holiday months, and our Service Awards reception recognizing service to the University and to the community. 
  • Producing talks by Princeton faculty, administrators, alumni and other speakers. 
  • Organizing professional networking activities like Net Nights, social gatherings for young alumni, and sporting events and outings.. 
  • Hosting an annual production of Princeton Triangle Show
  • Partnering with many wonderful affiliate groups like the Princeton Women’s Network (PWN), the Association of Latino Princeton Alumni (ALPA), the Association of Black Princeton Alumni (ABPA), the Asian American Alumni Association of Princeton (A4P), and the Ivy Singles Social Club and other all-Ivy alumni groups.  


We rely on our generous and hardworking alumni volunteers to plan our diverse event offerings. If you would like to volunteer with the Princeton Club of Washington - for instance, if you have an event idea you’d like to make happen, want to engage a new segment of alumni, sponsor one of our signature annual events, or simply want to get more involved — please email us at princetonclubofwashington@gmail.com.
