“A Spot of Old England in the Middle of New Jersey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Campuses don't come any more beautiful than this one. Its many gardens, tree-lined streets, museums, libraries, cafes, and chapels make it a perfect place to spend a day.

“A walk thru history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

What a wonderful place it must be to attend classes here. Even better, anyone can walk the campus, sign up for a tour, enjoy the libraries, historical buildings, and read and experience details of our country from our forefathers words, and marks, all over the campus.

We stumbled on a piano concert in. The on campus church. Saw an interesting Truman exhibit in the Firestone library, and took countless pictures to remember it all! Worth a visit.

“A wonderful campus to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

Princeton has a beautiful campus and many many interesting and varied buildings to see.
It has a top notch Art museum which has an excellent collection for a museum this size. The art museum is free and open every day but Monday. There are many events that take place on the campus throughout the week and weekend. most of these events are open to the public. The University has a large student center with an excellent choice of dining.
