I visited this University in 2014 for a few days to get an impression of the campus and the surrounding area. I was very impressed by the architecture, the old buildings are remarkably well preserved (for the most part).
As soon as you appear to Princeton you feel unbelievable and especial atmosphere. Streets of Princeton University campus, buildings with fabulous architectural features, monuments with outstanding scientists that oxidized and changed their color for bright green, trees and parks with perfect lawns all this elements facilitates for a unique entourage. Architectural approach of Princeton University campus it’s something incredible. All the time you spent on campus you feel that you turned up at a fairytale with a story times of the Renaissance period. Expressive and unique architectural details of campus seems to form its own character for every building individually. At a glance obvious that overall style is maintained with all proportional approaches relatively each other as at the same time you don't feel that landscape and overall view too uniformity. All this details in general positively influences as on everyday life of residents, as on those who visited this campus for the very first time. Princeton University Art Museum is worth for visit and take a guide across a collection of masterpieces. Additionally I highly recommend to visit local students cafe where you will be treated with good coffee and cookies and you will have a chance to get acquaintance with very curious people. Princeton University impressed at all levels and I love campus as well as a small & cozy city. I highly recommend to visit this unique place.
Awesome. The atmosphere, the history and the architecture made me speechless. May be the best university campus in the US. Walking between buildings, breathing the fresh air of Princeton city was one of the best memories I have ever had. Of course I am writing this review as a tourist.
Princeton is a beautiful college and a beautiful campus. Lots of history and beautiful architecture. take your time to walk around the entire campus but try to avoid going during holiday weekends as attends to be very touristy.
