Administration: Public safety is pretty chill and there are almost no consequences for drinking

Campus Food: If you like non-bland food, late meal will be your only salvation. Dining hall food sucks. Eating club food is sometimes good but sometimes sucks too.

Off-Campus Housing: Very few people live off campus & I'm unaware about the particulars of what it's like.

Majors: If I could do it all over again, I would choose Princeton 100% but perhaps choose a different major. It's difficult to choose your major and then you get so swept up and away by it that by the time graduation rolls around, some people think their lives would have been easier/nicer if they had chosen a different major.

Majors: Honestly, it's so selective that the most qualified of candidates could potentially not get it. I would suggest participating in activities you love and not because you want to get into PU. It is better to do a couple things well for a long time than to do a mediocre job at many things.

Campus Food: There are multiple colleges within the Princeton University umbrella, and each college or pair of colleges has its own dining hall (all dining halls are open to all students). Eating clubs and the Frist campus center are also food options. With so much food everywhere, you will definitely find what you want to eat. And the food is great! People who whine about the food are spoiled by all the choices. Ask those same people who complain how they fair with food after graduation.

Athletics: The amount of attention and success is sport-dependent.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: Great free gym for working out, safe campus paths for running, beautiful libraries, comfortable and fun campus center with food (convenient store, desserts, icecream, cafe, etc), tables, lounge chairs, study rooms with chalk/marker boards, televisions, piano, etc.

Campus Quality: Academically, athletically, monetarily (i.e. financial aid), socially superior.

Campus Housing: Freshman year is a toss-up because you're new and thrown into a dormitory with people you don't know, but after your first year, you are able to room with whomever you choose. This process is done in a fair, random lottery system.

Guys & Girls: There are many different types of people at Princeton, and I am sure that if you are looking for a significant other, you will find him/her.

Local Area: Princeton is a wealthy, quiet, safe neighborhood.

What's so great, though, is that NYC is a train ride away, and the school provides insanely discounted tickets to Broadway plays, professional sporting events, and museums/shows.

Scholarships: Princeton University probably has the best financial aid gifts/process in the country. If you need aid, they will provide it and work with you. If PU thinks that you are a qualified candidate to attend its institution, they don't want money to stand in the way.

Drug Safety: I am not into those things, but I don't think it is that bad...

Off-Campus Dining: I don't really go out to dine, but the prices are worth it...

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty expensive and it is also not air conditioned, so it gets hot during the summer.

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.
