Princeton University

Princeton University is unique in combining the strengths of a major research university with the qualities of an outstanding liberal arts college. Whether through independent study, student-initiated seminars, or lectures in emerging fields such as neuroscience, Princeton students have the flexibility to shape dynamic academic programs that prepare them for leadership and lives of service. Through its groundbreaking financial aid program, Princeton ensures that all qualified students who are accepted can afford to attend the University. Chartered in 1746, Princeton is renowned for its commitment to undergraduate teaching. Its faculty are known throughout the world and it is not unusual for students to learn from Nobel laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, and MacArthur fellows. Students benefit from small class sizes and one-on-one advising with faculty, particularly while doing independent work such as the senior thesis. All intellectual endeavors of Princeton’s undergraduate students are supported by a range of first-rate academic resources, such as libraries, laboratories, and even an art museum. The academic options at Princeton give students flexibility in pursuing their intellectual interests while working toward either the Bachelor of Arts degree or the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree. Students also may choose among more than 30 interdisciplinary programs, creating combinations of academic interests. For example, a student might major in physics while also earning a certificate in Latin American Studies. The University is located in the town of Princeton, which has a diverse population of 15,000 residents and is situated between New York City and Philadelphia, with rail service to both cities. Princeton is a residential university and provides a welcoming environment, advising services, cultural and educational events, intramural sports, and more. Starting in Fall 2007, upon completion of a sixth college, the residential college system will be enhanced and expanded to provide even more housing options for students. The interests and talents of Princeton undergraduates translate into countless ways for students to get involved. Students can participate in more than 200 student-run organizations, the arts, civic engagement, student government, religious groups,and athletics.
