The Princeton Club of Northern California (PCNC) strengthens the Princeton community in Northern California by hosting over fifty entrepreneurship, networking, community service, and social events each year.
We enjoy private lectures and backstage tours of the San Francisco Symphony and Opera. We watch the Giants and Warriors play. We host Young Alumni happy hours and pub nights across the Bay Area. We volunteer with nonprofits from GLIDE to Save the Bay. The Club hosts panels to tickle your brain on topics ranging from artificial intelligence and biotech to Russian foreign policy.
We have some wonderful annual traditions within the Club, including the annual Holiday Party, the Princeton in the Sierra weekend on Fallen Leaf Lake, the Pre-Reunions barbecue, and the fall barbecue on the Peninsula.
PCNC partners with the University to host Alumni-Faculty Forums and co-host events with our regional affinity groups and Ivy peer clubs. We present regional awards, the Princeton Prize in Race Relations and the Princeton Book Award. Most important of all, we support the education of Northern California Princeton undergraduates through our annual PCNC Scholarship and Van Siclen Award.
