College Town

Best known as the home of Princeton University, the town of Princeton centers around the Ivy League school and its stone, vine-covered buildings. The university's campus strives to emulate the historical European universities that inspired it, and celebrates the visual and performing arts. F. Scott Fitzgerald, Joyce Carol Oates, and Judy Blume have all immortalized the town in literature. The city is equidistant from Philadelphia and New York City, and the region has recently been recognized for hosting competitive rowing events. Princeton is in New Jersey (NJ).
