Came here with my daughter and was remarkably impressed. If you go to the informational meeting prior to the campus tour it is held in the classroom in which Einstein taught. That alone makes this a must visit stop. Walking the rest of this pristine campus was just icing on the cake.

We enjoyed touring the campus. The buildings are beautiful, the town centric location a plus and of course the University has so much to offer...

Great architecture and university town feel with wide selection of restaurants. There is also the scenic Delaware canal running past the university.

I love university campuses, and so I will stop at any chance I can get to visit them. On a recent trip through New Jersey, I was able to detour with the family to Princeton U, and found it to be everything you'd expect from such an esteemed institution. You can feel the wisdom of the ages as you wander... More

This campus is beautiful. Even if you are not looking at colleges, it is well worth a visit to view the architecture and learn the history of the school.

This is a great looking campus to visit, beautiful architecture and lots of science history here. Also, visit Arts Museum and surrounding streets for a good dining or light shopping. Or you can rent a bike or a kayak on the canal and enjoy the nature right outside the campus. I would definitely say this place is a must visit... More
