The campus is very beautiful, it's a very studious university, so you won't be seeing a lot of partying like you would with other school, public or private.
I love the academic strength and rigor. My only problem is the party scene as I feel all groups (athletes, narps, ...) just stay together and don't really mix due to the eating club structure (as opposed to having bar-life near a college).

I like the small school vibe which makes Princeton feel more tight-knit than larger universities. The residential college system also helps to promote a sense of unity among students on campus. I also think there is enough entertainment on and off campus with eating clubs on campus and NYC and Philadelphia within a train ride away from campus. However, academics can be intense and stress culture is definitely palpable, especially during midterms and finals period.
Classes at Princeton are superb in all regards. Faculty to student ratios are very low, so students can receive a significant amount of attention from world-class professors and extremely helpful teacher assistants. The amount of resources dedicated to each student is unmatched. The alumni system is very structured, ensuring a connected student body with those in industry or academia. The campus is beautiful, showing off a gothic architecture juxtaposed with modern designs. The local area is a safe, cozy college town. The university is within an hour of New York and Philadelphia by train, but there are countless activities, clubs, and organizations to stay busy on campus. The food is relatively good and healthy. Some of the dorm conditions could be improved, but regardless the university does provide adequate housing and space for all students.
Princeton University is an amazing college for students. they are ranked the number one best college in the united states. their education is high quality and very renowned.
Wonderful campus! The faculty and students make you feel so welcome once you enter nearly every building! Great comradery.
Princeton University is one of the top schools in America. Not only does it provide students with a great academic life, but it also provides chances for everyone to meet new people and create a community.
its pretty good, very nice town and cute shops! the dining hall food could be a lot better though. add more veggies!
Princeton University is one of the top schools in America. Not only does it provide students with a great academic life, but it also provides chances for everyone to meet new people and create a community.
As an entering student, I visited Princeton University in the middle of April. The campus is coated in blossoming trees, while the buildings are old yet renovated inside. The air is cool and moist, but not humid like southeast Texas.

Another thing I enjoy is the commitment to sustainability, especially in projects abroad and the dining hall food. The Princeton Environmental institute does classes with local farmers using a variety of methods and chefs from many culinary backgrounds.

What I like most about Princeton is the community. My host and his friends had endless intellectual and personal discussions and readily invited me into their part of Princeton.
The students at Princeton University are so bright and are willing to share what they know with the community. The area surrounding Princeton is beautiful, and has a lot of food options. The sports aren't great, but they're still fun to go to.
Great university. Provides many research opportunities. Professors are very open and willing to meet with students after class. Would highly recommend.
Great scholarly environment. However, the fast pace makes it much more academically challenging than it needs to be.
I have attended their campus tour and information session since I am a future applicant. I have no complaints and this is my dream school.
It is an amazing school. Visiting the campus at Princeton, and learning about its various course options is a true joy.
The campus culture here is amazing. It's rigorous academically, but the vast majority of people are supportive of each other. There is a problem with diversity - or a lack thereof - but the university and (mostly) students make support networks.

In my experience, which has only been one semester, Princeton is a wonderful place. It has comfortable dorms, beautiful study spaces, delicious food and amazing professors. I am pursuing a BA degree rather than a BSE, and I was able to take a wide range of classes that I enjoyed. There are endless oppportunities for extra cirriculars. It is however, a stressful environment depending on how many things you decide to take on, in addition to the pressure of going to such a prestigious institution with students that have the same goals of achievement.
I found that Princeton University has a very difficult and challenging curriculum - there is no such thing as an easy major or an easy class. However, it really sets you up for the mentality that there will always be something new to learn and ways to improve yourself.
Princeton University is a stellar institution with a strong focus on undergraduate teaching. World class faculty are approachable and invested in the success of their undergraduate students.
