Campus Visit Notes for Princeton University
I expected to either really like Princeton or really not like it, but this was not the case. I thought everything was just okay. The campus was attractive, but not the best looking campus that I've seen. The tour guide was friendly, but generally underwhelming and only moderately informative. The town of Princeton is suburban, upper middle class and not that interesting. The students seemed nice enough and the population seemed diverse.
Nothing stood out as exceptional. Not the description of the study abroad programs, athletics, residential college life, social life. The tour guide said his Econ 101 class had 350 students in it and while he said that that is not the norm, I wasn't impressed with that figure. It's Princeton, so I am sure the education is great, but nothing about the campus tour made me feel like: I really want to go to this school. Maybe this had more to do with the lackluster tour guide and admissions counselor, but I'm not really motivated to learn much more about Princeton.
