I could not possibly estimate how many times we have done so since, whether alone, with our son, or with other family or friends. We love the campus so much that people often assume one... More

Today I decided to take my readers to a paradise where the most precious treasure is knowledge. Come and explore with me the main library of Princeton University (also called the Firestone Library) - an abode of books. On entering the main library hall, I noticed the inspiring sentence written on a wooden plank. "This hall leading to the endless... More

A stroll through the vast Princeton University campus with its enormous architectural diversity is a feast for the eyes. Historic Nassau Hall is directly across from downtown Princeton's Nassau Streets shops. It's not surprising that this campus has been used as the setting and background for many popular movies over the years. Whether you visit the University Chapel, the University... More

In one or two hours, one can walk from the original, mid-18th century campus green on Nassau Street with Nassau Hall, Stanhope Hall, and Maclean House;... More

Great old campus, with many different kinds of architecture. Check out the campus chapel, with its arches and banners; straight out of Hogwarts.

I took AP classes here as a student at Lawrenceville. Haven't been back in forever. The Cathedral is the same, as it has been for a hundred plus. Still have the 1943 battle flag from the US Princeton Carrier. We had the pleasure of hearing an organist play on a saturday arternoon. Fantastic (like they would allow an idiot to... More
