Even when it is hard, you are with such an incredible group of people that the entire experience is amazing. I have never felt unsafe on campus and I have never heard of anyone else feeling unsafe.

Some of the buildings are very old. You do not really have a choice of where you get placed your first two years, and there is a wide variety of quality of the dorms.

I have had such a great experience with Princeton. Challenging curriculum. Highly motivated student body. The professors and courses were excellent, but mostly I've been so happy to find great people all over the campus, and a community I genuinely click with.

Princeton is very diverse. There are a lot of different perspectives as well. The University truly offers a high quality education, especially as a result of its wonderful professors, some of which are Nobel Laureates. Moreover, the University's network allows for extensive connection between current and graduated students. This leads to great opportunities that would not necessarily be available elsewhere. Lastly, I really believe the Bridge Year program instills a humble nature in students through introducing the opportunity to volunteer for a year abroad. Doing so allows students to mature and experience other cultures prior to embarking on a difficult, yet rewarding task of attending Princeton University.

The people and professors are amazingly nice. Academic resources are outstanding, and the amount of help offered students to enhance both personal and academic life is nearly overwhelming. Classes are challenging yet include stimulating discussion and ample opportunity to make lasting connections with peers, mentors, and professors across campus. Student life is diverse and varied, allowing for nearly any club or activity to thrive if students are interested in participating.

The housing here is pretty great. I haven't had any trouble getting the financial aid that I need and would probably be paying more to attend a community college.

The school is pretty safe thanks to the environment of the town. It offers the best undergraduate education.

The vibrant social life helps counterbalance the workload each week. For big games, a good amount of the student body comes out and supports the team.

I found that Princeton University has a very difficult and challenging curriculum - there is no such thing as an easy major or an easy class. The environment was such that I felt that almost any subject that I wanted to learn or investigate, I could.

I love Princeton University. They are a great school. Amazing school. I visited and I thought the campus was great. I really am hoping I can attend in the fall.
