Loved walking around the grounds - the old buildings are just gorgeous and a stop in the cathedral is recommended - beautiful and impressive with the organs playing

My friend took me and family to this great university for a tour and we loved the sight of youngsters on the campus as also in playing fields, street and shopping areas. It made me feel younger by several years!!!

Princeton University lives up to its Ivy League reputation when it comes to its campus. I found myself walking the campus on a beautiful late fall day and was taken back how nice the campus grounds our. It was a lively place and projected itself as a larger campus than I believe is reflected in the population of the students... More

Princeton University is better than ever. I earned my PhD there thirty years ago. The infrastructure was excellent then. Now it is much more than that. But, it is not the buildings but the people that make it exceedingly interesting.

While I am biased as an alum, the Princeton University campus is a special place -- it has tremendous history and great architecture of course, but what truly stands out to me are the dramatic transitions through beautiful arches from one magnificent place to another. Nassau Hall, the Chapel, the Art Museum, and Prospect Garden are highlights. A hidden gem... More

Spend sometime wandering in the nice downtown. Going south you can find the sports area, the football stadium can welcome 25000 people ! Founded in the 17th century, the university offers a nice unity in term of architecture.
