Description
Princeton University is a private research university located in Princeton, New Jersey, United States. It is one of the eight universities of the Ivy League, and one of the nine Colonial Colleges founded before the American Revolution. Princeton provides undergraduate and graduate instruction in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering. Princeton does not have schools of medicine, law, divinity, or business, but it does offer professional degrees through the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, the Princeton University School of Engineering and Applied Science and the School of Architecture. Founded in 1746 in Elizabeth, New Jersey, as the College of New Jersey, the university moved to Newark in 1747, then to Princeton in 1756 and was renamed Princeton University in 1896. The present-day College of New Jersey in nearby Ewing, New Jersey, is an unrelated institution. Princeton was the fourth chartered institution of higher education in the American colonies. Princeton had close ties to the Presbyterian Church, but has never been affiliated with any denomination and today imposes no religious requirements on its students. The university has ties with the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton Theological Seminary, and the Westminster Choir College of Rider University. Princeton has been associated with 35 Nobel Laureates, 17 National Medal of Science winners, and three National Humanities Medal winners. On a per-student basis, Princeton has the largest university endowment in the world.

地理位置
Princeton, New Jersey is an upscale college town that features lots of high-end stores and restaurants, with some bargain eateries in the mix as well. It’s about an hour from New York City and Philadelphia. The town of Princeton seems smaller than a lot of other college towns, and perhaps a little higher end than some, with less specifically geared to students. However, the area is beautiful, quiet, and very safe. I feel like I would be safe walking around here at any time of day or night. Lots of good restaurants in walking distance, but a trip to route one by car or bus is necessary for larger-scale shopping trips.

校园
Princeton University’s suburban campus covers 600 acres in Princeton, NJ. The architecture ranges from neo-Gothic in the portions of campus usually shown on tours to more modern buildings (not on the tour routes). Frist Campus Center, a dining and social hub, was built in 2001 in the middle of Princeton’s campus. Dillon Gymnasium is also conveniently located near the campus’s center. The university’s six residential colleges for underclassmen are interspersed across campus with academic buildings. Mathey and Rockefeller Colleges are in the northwest corner; Forbes College is in the southwest corner, as is Whitman College, which opened in 2007; and Wilson and Butler Colleges, the most centrally-located, are slightly southwest of Frist Campus Center.

Underclassmen at Princeton live in one of the university’s six residential colleges, while upperclassmen live in dorms unaffiliated with these colleges. However, the university is currently introducing a four-year residential college system at Whitman and Mathey Colleges as an alternative to the eating club system (which many students use as a dining option after sophomore year). Freshmen are randomly assigned to one of six residential colleges for their first two years at Princeton. These placements give each student a different perspective on life at Princeton. ‘Up-campus’ colleges Rockefeller and Mathey are the oldest and most Gothic in architecture. With their stone walls and traditional courtyards, these are the dorms that are most often photographed for postcards and guidebooks. Butler and Wilson colleges, on the other hand, were mainly built during the latter half of the 20th century, and while they offer both large suites and more singles than Rocky/Mathey, are generally considered less attractive. In the fall of 2007, in fact, the university razed most of Butler College and began construction on a more up-to-date facility. The dorms that were once known for cement walls and waffle ceilings will soon be the newest, and possibly most luxurious, on campus. Because it was once a hotel, Forbes College has its benefits, like a large number of singles with private bathrooms. The major drawbacks to Forbes, however, are somewhat more notable. Rooms in the addition that was built to add more space are graced with cinderblock walls and a sort of basement or temporary housing feel. Additionally, Forbes is not technically on Princeton’s campus, and thus the commute to class can be long and irritating. However, because of its slightly isolated location, I think it is safe to say that Forbes residents develop the strongest community bond and allegiance of any of the residential colleges, plus they have the luck to enjoy a view of the golf course every day. Finally, Whitman is the newest residential college, built to look like an old, long-standing part of the campus, but what it really resembles is a massive fortress. Still, with air-conditioning and shiny new hallways, Whitman is generally considered the nicest place to live. Upper-class housing offers countless options, from the off-campus vegetarian co-op to Scully Hall, the long snake of a building that sits at the very bottom of campus. Additionally, Dodd Hall has the best senior housing with tons and tons of recently renovated singles and an attractive basement study area. Also popular are ‘the slums,’ which are really not what they sound. Architecturally similar to much of Rocky College, these dorms are simply not as shiny on the inside. Nevertheless many upperclassmen, especially those who are looking for quads, draw into this series of dorms between the U-Store and the Dinky station. Entering junior year, students have a number of choices regarding housing, which is largely related to their eating decision. Those who wish can remain in a residential college (either Mathey or Whitman) and continue to eat at the dining hall (this living option is also available to those who negotiate a split meal plan with their eating club). RA’s also live in their respective residential colleges, and get dining meal plans, although they can be club members as well. Independent students get priority in the draw, and are allowed to live in the apartment-style Spelman dorms, which have kitchens, or just choose rooms near other dormitory kitchens. Members of the dining co-ops have first priority to choose dorms near those kitchen facilities as well (Brown and 2 Dickenson). Lastly, there are a number of upperclassmen dorms, where the vast majority of juniors and seniors choose to live. Seniors get to draw rooms before juniors, meaning that they usually boast the nicest rooms, and juniors, except those who are exceptionally high on the draw list, usually get some of the worst room options. Most of the upper-class rooms are in the same area, known as ‘the slums’ (although not an accurate description), with the exception of the Dodd (a very nice dorm, mostly seniors), Brown (known to be less nice, but generally pretty social), Little, and Scully (farthest away, mostly single rooms, boasts air conditioning). The slums area is usually very social and active, especially when the weather gets warmer and many people can be found tanning, playing Frisbee, and studying out in the courtyard.

体育培养
Princeton’s 38 varsity sports teams complete in the NCAA’s Division I. The school also offers almost 40 club teams, and more than half of the student body competes at the club or varsity level. There are about 300 intramural sports teams as well. Princeton’s men’s and women’s crew teams have won a number of NCAA and Eastern Sprints titles in the past few years. Between 2001 and 2004, Princeton’s teams won 36 Ivy League conference titles, and in 2005, the soccer team was the first Ivy League team to advance to the NCAA’s Final Four. And between 1992 and 2001, the men’s basketball team competed in the NCAAs four times. The men’s lacrosse team has been particularly successful, with thirteen Ivy League titles and six national titles since the 1990s. As reported by Katharine Westfall ’09: “Princeton is not exactly known for its skill or prowess on the football field, but the Homecoming game against either Harvard or Yale draws a huge, enthusiastic crowd every year. In 2006 the Tigers won the Ivy League and the university celebrated with a bonfire of epic proportions. Lately, Princeton’s lacrosse and basketball teams have seen a lot of success, and the hockey team has been featured on NHL.com.”
