Most beautiful campus ever

The campus is spectacular to enjoy on a guided tour or just wandering. Don't miss the chapel and Prospect Gardens, which are in the shape of the university's seal.

There was a lot of walking to do in order to get around as the campus is enormous. Some things such as the museum is closed on Memorial Day! Be sure to see the rose garden.

We took our grandson here for the day just to walk around and have lunch. We had been to many lovely universities in the US and Europe, but this one right in our back yard in New Jersey has lots of history and ivy-covered brick exteriors, just like you would expect from all the stately college photos you've seen over...

In the summer the flowers are fantastic... More

With Spring finally here it's for locales nice to get out and explore Middlesex County. If you've never been to Princeton University it's worth a trip. The architecture of this beautiful college spans more than three centuries and has been laid out to create a beautiful backdrops for photos (and this coming from someone who graduated from a different and...

My colleague and I walked around the University for about 2.5 hours and were delighted to find a Friday night performance by the students of Verdi's Requiem. Wow! Incredible!! Great end to an amazing Friday.
