5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene at the eating clubs is great compared to other Ivy League schools.

Majors: I placed out of a lot of my pre-req classes with AP credit and placement tests. You have to choose your major in sophomore year spring semester, and as a freshman I still feel in the dark about what I am supposed to be doing exactly. and what the timeline for these things are. Especially for certificate programs.

Off-Campus Housing: 99% of students dorm on campus so I do not know much about off-campus housing.

Administration: The administration is mostly on your side and mainly enforces the educational aspect of things more than the social/drinking/sex/drug part. However, if you are caught with drugs you can get disciplinary action. The honor code here is unique in that none of our tests are proctored; we just sign a statement saying we upheld the honor code. But if you are found to have cheated you will get suspended, most likely.

Campus Housing: The dorms are amazing and spacious. Although you don't spend a lot of time in them, there are other facilities within the building that make you want to spend your time there. There are so many social events and spaces within the dorm buildings to make that possible.

Off-Campus Dining: The Town of Princeton is known for its restaurants. The scene for dining is so nice and so many little shops around with home-made icecream etc. People come here from other towns to try out the icecream and dining options here.

Off-Campus Dining: Students rarely eat off campus. The dining services provided by the school don't leave you wanting anything more.

Campus Housing: Princeton invests heavily in their housing. Laundry is free. Students are divided up into six residential colleges which greatly enhances the community feel.

Local Area: Princeton has a little bubble. So other than the main street right by campus, most people don't notice the city that we're in. If anything, a student may take the Saturday shopping bus to go run a couple errands, but that's it.

Greek Life: Social life revolves around the eating clubs at Princeton. Greek life has little to no effect.

Administration: It's very lenient where it should be: drinking, dorms, and social events. But it's also strict where it needs to be: the Honor Code. And most students understand and respect where the Honor Code comes from.

Academics: We have some of the best professors and top individuals in their field teaching our courses. The introductory computer science class is also one of the best classes. Workload for engineers and STEM students is significantly more than other majors. We stay up very late most nights working.

Greek Life: I do not know much about the greek life. It is not a big thing on my campus and freshmen are banned from joining their first year. This is for their own good and they can join once they are no longer freshmen.

Campus Housing: I live in Forbes residential college and it is like a home away from school. The cost of dorms are going up year to year but it is still at an okay price. The housing process depends on draw-times which are randomly assigned and upper-class men get priority. If you get good draw time you get good rooms. The social atmosphere is amazing. There is always something to do on campus!

Majors: I have not had an internship yet through the school mainly because I did not take advantage of the opportunities around me and did not go to career service for help. I do plan to have one this summer and do not have any concerns finding one.

Academics: There are so many opportunities to take advantage of especially if you are pre-med. The downside is that pre-meds at my school are very competitive and would kill for an A so if you are in a class with lots of pre-med beware that the curve might not work in your favor!

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Once students get past the relative isolation of Princeton, they immerse themselves in the multitude of campus academic and social activities, from political and humor publications to debate societies to eating clubs. The academic program is demanding, which students appreciate, and it prepares students for not only the work force but also top-notch graduate schools. The historic buildings and eating clubs give Princeton its own sort of feel that may not mesh well with all students but certainly provide Princeton undergrads with a plethora of traditions and opportunities that are characteristically Princeton.

Princeton is not just a school, it is an experience. Students who take full advantage of what Princeton has to offer have the opportunity to work with some of the most talented professors and scholars in the world on an idyllic campus. They graduate with one of the best undergraduate educations in the country and with all the connections the alumni experience has to offer. Some students may not realize the significance of the Princeton experience until they march on to Elm Drive for their graduating P-Rade, but the majority of students know how special the Princeton experience is by the time they are back from the woods on their pre-frosh Outdoor Action trip.
