What Students Are Saying

4.59 Average Rating
Princeton has a beautiful campus! The students are friendly and hardworking. You definitely have to work hard to get in!
Gabriella
Princeton is really the best of many worlds - it's a liberal arts college with the resources of a big research powerhouse; it's close to the city but is surrounded by a quaint town; it's 'academic' and Ivy-like, but also knows how to have fun. This is a place that will stretch your mind and challenge you like never before, in a way that's surprisingly exciting. The beautiful campus and storied history also make it impossible not feel proud about being a Princetonian.
