We made it! We turned a hundred years old. To celebrate, we gathered for tea, surrounded by friends, well-wishers, and Assemblymen Andrew Zwicker and Jack Ciattarelli, with cellist Jacob Tyles supplying background music, and two very special speakers, Treby Williams, Executive Vice President of Princeton University, and Professor Nancy Weiss Malkiel, providing inspirational speeches. Thank you all who assisted in the event.

100 YEARS – WCCP
What a fabulous occasion as members and guests (102 strong) joined together to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Women’s College Club of Princeton on Sunday, April 10th! The weather dawned sunny and bright, guests were welcomed by past presidents as they entered the Chauncey Center and were directed to the beautifully decorated Solomon Room where a young cellist from Princeton University greeted them. Displays at the History Table featured events of the past 100 years.
Following a delicious tea, our President Kathy Hutchins welcomed everyone and introduced special guests. We all raised our champagne glasses as we toasted 100 years of fulfilling our mission of awarding scholarships to deserving young women of Princeton area schools and of providing cultural enrichment for ourselves and the Princeton community. Treby Williams, Executive Vice President of Princeton University, introduced our guest speaker, Professor Nancy Malkiel, Former Dean of Princeton University, who delivered an inspiring speech highlighting the introduction of undergraduate women to the campuses of Princeton, Yale, Dartmouth, etc.
Many thanks to the committee who cheerfully spent many hours planning for this event and to all the donors who contributed so generously. It was a splendid afternoon of celebration! Here’s to the next 100!
