    You are certain to find some extracurricular, be it club, dance group, or volunteer service, to consume your extremely limited free time. You will probably end up a leading board member of said club or dance group while spearheading your own community service initiative. How Princeton students manage to juggle their exhausting rigorous academic schedules and their absurdly over-committed outside-the-classroom lives mystifies everyone, especially the Princeton students. Campus is stunning. The facilities (gym, lounges, libraries) are great and well maintained. School pride is embraced to the point of cultishness. If you don't let your commitments eat you alive, you'll love it here.

    Princeton has a beautiful campus, a good meal plan, a bunch of activities, and multiple student centers. Not to mention more than 300 clubs and organisations! The campus is located just about an hour away from New York City and Philadelphia by train making it just the perfect distance from the city.
