Administrative Note: Signing up with A4P via the "Join A4P" button records your name and information on a spreadsheet internal to the website, confidential and private. Unfortunately, you will receive no email feedback regarding your registration. I check about once a quarter and capture the names and bump them against the Tigernet database. If you are already in the database as being "A4P", no action required on your part. If you are not, I submit your name to Princeton University to be added, then you will receive the A4P email blasts in the future. Since we are moving web platforms to the new Tigernet, thank you for your patience as we transition over. -Doug '83. Questions? Email me at a4ptiger@gmail.com
