Less than an hour away from New York City and Philadelphia, Princeton is surrounded by county parks, lakes, and scenic roads. The school offers solace behind its picturesque ivory towers and 600 acres of sprawling campus greens.

Princeton is consistently recognized as one of the most prestigious universities in the country –and world. The University is home to top ranked economic, history, and sociology programs, as well as the renowned Graduate School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. Princeton’s undergraduate enrollment is just over 5,000, while their graduate programs house another 2,500 students. With 98% of students choosing to live on campus, attendees enjoy an array of various on-campus activities, clubs, and intramurals. Although fraternities and sororities are now allowed, they came to be banned at Princeton and twelve “eating clubs” were established to offer social functions and housing for students.

Traditionally known and recognized for their academic rigor and combination of research and liberal arts, the Princeton Tigers have also experienced great success within the Ivy League -and nationally- competing at the Division I level. The Princeton Tigers men’s lacrosse team has garnered the most recent success, collecting six NCAA championships during the 1990’s and early 2000’s.

Notable Princeton graduates and attendees include 35 Nobel Laureates, U.S. Presidents James Madison and Woodrow Wilson, and prolific American writer, F. Scott Fitzgerald. Albert Einstein was also a regular guest lecturer and supporter of Princeton.
