Wonderful to walk through the main campus on a bright fall day. It is compact enough to see many major sites including Nassau Hall, Whig & Clio buildings, Maclean House, Prospect House, the Chapel, the book store, art museum, Woodrow Wilson school, many dormitories, etc.

While visiting Philadelphia we took a drive to view Princeton and were not disappointed. It is a beautiful campus full of history and charm. The town itself is charming and fun to explore.
