"The Institute for Advanced Study has enriched the Princeton community for close to a century now, providing a world-famous home for some of the most brilliant thinkers around: think Albert Einstein and George F. Kennan. The Friends celebrate and partake of this intellectual energy through lectures, discussions, film series, concerts, and a Dining Hall filled with fertile minds. The Friends connect with the Institute, each reinforcing the other."
