Graduate Alumni Reunions

Join Us for APGA Reunions 2020!

The Woodrow Wilson School is looking forward to connecting with graduate alumni during Princeton's Reunions events. We have partnered with the Association of Princeton Graduate Alumni (APGA) on Reunions programming for several years and it is always exciting to see WWS Alumni come together under the APGA tent.
 

Reunions Registration Details

Registration for Reunions 2020 (May 28 - May 31) will open in the spring on the APGA Reunions event websiteWe hope that many of you will return to campus to celebrate with fellow alumni, graduating students, and staff. Last year, we welcomed over 100 graduate alumni spanning many decades from the Class of 1969 to the Class of 2018. Members of the graduating Class of 2019 also joined us for the celebrations.

Those who formally register for Reunions will find that the Woo Community is well represented in the APGA tent since WWS is the largest participating graduate department. You'll also find Woos at other activities over the weekend including the P-Rade! The full list of events will be available on Princeton's Reunions website in March.
