Princeton Visit

Our next stop: Princeton.

Princeton was okay, but I didn't like it much. Their mandatory Senior Thesis program sounded interesting. Their campus architecture was beautiful. 

However, the person leading our information session was so long-winded that there was no time left for questions. There was no mention of Princeton's famous eating clubs in the info session, and only a sentence or two for them on the campus tour. It makes me wonder if the subject is purposefully being avoided.

Princeton is also a much larger school than Swarthmore. At Swarthmore, the largest classes, introductory level classes of which a student might only take a few, are around 50 people. At Princeton, these classes are 450 people.

I didn't like how Princeton felt, although there were some aspects of it I liked.
