Whatever the season , something is always happening at the University. Lectures , tours , and enthusiasts of architecture admire the old meets new . The traditional buildings of Princeton University and the prestigious homes that now serve as sororities and frat houses ( still well kept ) are worth the couple of hours walk .

The campus has great architecture and are suitable for strolling around. During fall season the leave changes color and it made the campus even more colorful.

We got a chance to visit the campus while visiting our nephew who is a student there. It is a lovely campus and it had its best "Autumn Clothes" on for our visit. The buildings are old and often Ivy covered. If they are not old, they are made to fit into the ones that are, or they are uniquely... More

Loved walking around the grounds - the old buildings are just gorgeous and a stop in the cathedral is recommended - beautiful and impressive with the organs playing

My friend took me and family to this great university for a tour and we loved the sight of youngsters on the campus as also in playing fields, street and shopping areas. It made me feel younger by several years!!!

Princeton University is better than ever. I earned my PhD there thirty years ago. The infrastructure was excellent then. Now it is much more than that. But, it is not the buildings but the people that make it exceedingly interesting.
