      Overall Rating:

      Very huge campus, lovely greenery and landscaped garden every where you throw far your sight. Good hostels for young students to stay and study undisturbed in quiet environment.Small monuments placed at random places like Lion, Panthers and Statues makes it look mesmerizing. We enjoyed the visit to its campus.

      Overall Rating:

      Visiting was a wonderful experience. Being 13 years old and wanting to be a part of the Princeton educational system when I graduate from highschool, so far, has been a struggle but I'm working at it with a solid 4.0 GPA. I have gotten made fun of, people calling me "nerd" for working so hard at it, but the joke is on them I will become a successful person and they will be working for me

      Overall Rating:

      "The best old place of all" - high caliber educational institution, a gift to her students, a joy to her alumni, a beautiful place. Her community is my community. Too much mud in the springtime. ;-) I'm grateful to God I went there.
