“A university par excellence!”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Everything about this university and its campus is fantastic! Its vision, mission and academic rigor are the best of the best. Under its leadership by President Tilghman it has grown and encompassed the every changing needs of society, economy, business and the arts through an attentive focus on graduating students well-versed in both academic and artistic expression. From its hallowed halls have emerged some of our nation's and world's greatest thinkers, shakers and doers in society and government. Some of the buildings' architecture is quintessential early American with resonance of European influence. Even some of the newer buildings have been built to match in with the original campus. It is very beautiful just to approach it and once on, it's grounds are well-kept and tempting enough to host a picnic during the warmer months.

Possibly the most beautiful campus I've even been to. The gardens, sculpture and architecture are breathtaking.

“Ivy League Experience”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Princeton University is one of the top-notch universities in USA. It is huge and spread across several acres. The university is blessed with lots of trees which help keep it cool at all times. Lovely tracks have been made to walk/jog/ride a bike through the university. There is also an art museum inside which one can visit. The best part about the university is the area surrounding it - full of cafes, restaurants and small shops. The bookstores are to die for. One can pick up Princeton souvenirs at the shops including T-shirts, keychains, photo frames, etc.

A lot of university students and professors are seen milling about.
