“My Dream Come True”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

Visiting Princeton University was the happiest moment of my life because I value education and good schools. The campus was so huge and the architectural designs of the buildings were simply amazing. Colleges are separated, beautiful landscapes and plenty of trees. It is a nice place to study and belong. So, if you happened to be in New Jersey, don't forget to drop by the town and the university. I still cherish the memories of our trip to Princeton University.

“A Great Adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

This campus is fabulous. As you would expect from a world class institution. Wonderful architecture, a terrific Art museum, beautifully landscaped grounds. The town is a gem in the middle of New Jersey too. If you have a free day make Princeton and the University a stop in your schedule. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Rated one of the most beautiful campuses in the world. Very good art museum free and open to the public. Always seem to have lectures that are open to the public.

“Great walking campus”

If you are in the area, Campus is great to walk around. The university chapel is gorgeous, and is almost always open to the public.

“one of the most beautiful campuses in the US”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The campus is beautiful and looks so different with every season. A great walk with children, they can run around or ride their bikes or scooters, pose on the Tigers by Nassau Hall and look for the class dates on the Ivy-covered walls. Make sure you visit Firestone, the library, by the Chapel, which always has fantastic exhibitions open and free to the public, and also the Cotsen library which is a children's library, inside Firestone.
