  • Just had a visit to this place on a Sunday. Amazing and historic structure. Beautiful buildings with great architecture. Lush green campus with lot of shops in the vicinity.
  • Unique Princeton Reunions coming up the first weekend of June. Be prepared for enormous alumni(ae) crowds. Thursday through Sunday. If you are coming for the event, or visiting the campus just to visit, you will see a one of a kind reunion experience. Special P-Rade Saturday at 2pm of all classes, not just Reunion classes. On main campus. Can view anywhere along the route. Fireworks near Princeton Stadium on Saturday night starting about 9pm. You'll never see so much Orange and Black. One of the most beautiful campuses in the world. Just be prepared for huge crowds this weekend June 2-4.
  • Great place, everyone is great, helpful. I don't have to wait long when I press the call bell their on it. Perfect cancer center....
  • People that got somewhere in life went here so I'm guessing its a pretty good university. Maybe not the most prestigious but okay and it's has a beautiful campus.😊
  • I love the basketball program. Had an AMAZING time on Campus
