Letter from the President
Princeton Adult School has been serving our community for nearly 75 years, and we are very proud of the courses and activities that we have offered during those years. This fall is no exception—we think you will be pleased and intrigued with the variety and scope of our offerings.
While you may all have noticed that the Princeton Adult School has a large board, you may not know that our board members create the courses we offer, find and vet instructors, and ensure that all of our offerings are of high quality. We also seek out new ideas from you—the community—for instructors, topics and activities that will enrich our offerings. Near the end of this term we will begin a yearlong celebration of our 75th anniversary. We started with 600 students in January 1939, and offered 20 courses, all of them held at Princeton High School. In the intervening years we have outgrown that location, and you will now find PAS courses not just in the high school, but all over town and even in neighboring communities.
We are fortunate that we have been able to count on the generosity of faculty at Princeton University and other nearby academic institutions, notably Rutgers and NYU. They enrich our lecture courses, such as this term’s centerpiece series, “The Many Faces of Islam.” Other instructors are members of our community with special talents—such as knowledge of our legal system, local artists and fitness instructors, and popular chefs.
In order for us to continue our successful service to the community, we need your help. Sign up for our courses, either on our website www.princetonadultschool.org or register by mail. Email us with ideas for courses or instructors at email@example.com; or friend us on Facebook where you may find updated class infomation—www.facebook.com/princetonadultschool. And—if you can—help us defray the ever-increasing costs of mounting our wonderful array of courses each semester by sending a donation, both with your registration and during our annual fund drive in the fall. There is a form at the back of our brochure for your donation.
We hope you will enroll in one or more courses this fall—our board has worked diligently to identify topics and activities that appeal to a wide range of interests. We will be at the high school the first night of classes on October 2 and 4, and I hope to see you there!
