Truly an iconic Ivy League university! The moment you enter the gates you can feel the 300 year history of this legendary university. The time capsules for each batch are a beautiful tradition and placed in a very aesthetics manner. The town of Princeton around the university is a great place to walk around among a truly accomplished crowd of people!
Beautiful campus and historic buildings. I always enjoy working in the university area. Good food options on Nassau st
