Princeton University

Make no mistake: there is more to Princeton than white baseball caps. Princeton is an unabashedly undergraduate-focused university. While a powerhouse in the world of academic research, Princeton’s professors are renowned for their focus on teaching. The campus sits on a beautifully appointed 500 acres of gothic wonderment, and it also sits just a stone’s throw from New York City and Philadelphia. Even if you don’t indulge in one of Princeton’s aged eating clubs, life is good at Princeton University.

Features


Honor Code

Do you trust your peers? Well, you better, because they’re the ones who will be proctoring your exams at Princeton. The Honor Code, a cornerstone of the Princeton curriculum, is meant to foster a certain sense of academic integrity, whereby students are held more accountable.

Real Grades

Princeton recently underwent a grade deflation policy, so unlike at many other elite schools where grade inflation is out of control, the grades you receive are actually accurate reflections of your performance.

Financial Aid

The first college to get rid of loans for all students who qualify for financial aid, Princeton boasts the fewest students graduating with debt… even though 60% of students are on financial aid upon entry.

Eating Clubs

Much like Harvard’s Final Clubs, Princeton’s Eating clubs are the center of the school’s social scene. Each of the 11 (co-ed) eating clubs has a mansion on “the Street”, and serves as a dining hall for upperclassmen, as well as a hub for campus parties, live concerts and more.
