Princeton University reviews
A very scenic campus with traditional gothic architecture. It has the look and feel of an Ivy League school (and not all do). Very nice walking experience around campus.

While the Princeton campus may be open, their free art museum is going through some construction right now. Bummer! Wish we could've seen it after such a long drive. It is certainly classically...

This is a very old school with charm and beautiful architecture. I just walked through the campus, but it was quite lovely. I cannot attest to the education, but from what the school has posted everywhere, it seemed like a very “where are your papers?” university, which is quite something. I will not doc any stars because of it, but I was not allowed in the university chapel because of it (only students, faculty, or staff allowed)- I know it’s a private school, but I though these places were supposed to be open to all, like their predecessors in England like Cambridge or Oxford.
Beautiful campus and historic buildings. I always enjoy working in the university area. Good food options on Nassau st
