No campus tour available on the day we were there, so we just walked around the campus itself. So picturesque and tranquil; and such wonderful architecture. We also explored the newer part of the campus (devoted to engineering and the sciences) to get a better feel for the old and the new. Well worth the time spent, and there are... More

The Princeton campus is worth a walk. It is a journey through history, architecture, and tradition. Certainly one of the country's great universities, a blend of modern and Renaissance, inspiring and nestled in a rural/urban part of New Jersey.

For the last several years, a trip to our family out east mwould not be complete without a a drive around/walk through the Princeton campus grounds. The architecture/atmosphere is both stimulating and profound. The buildings are a visual feast one can indulge for hours. The sense of history and tradition are like a blanket one can wrap around their feelings... More

One of the most prestigious university has a very calm presence and invites victors and students alike. I was in town for business meetings and went to university campus on Saturday, you feel inspired and rejuvenated visiting the campus. Liked it a lot.

Princeton is an international community of people who share important value of life with education, health and great community service. I have been leaving here for the last 18 years and will for the next 100 years. There is no better place to be. They are open space, great shops, food and restaurant, university art museum and if you are... More

Whatever the season , something is always happening at the University. Lectures , tours , and enthusiasts of architecture admire the old meets new . The traditional buildings of Princeton University and the prestigious homes that now serve as sororities and frat houses ( still well kept ) are worth the couple of hours walk .
