Princeton has amazing things about it. Firstly, the academics are the best on the planet. I could never have received a better education, I think. The location too was impeccable. Sure it's not in a city, but its nestled in a nice place where you can study with no distraction. Also, the campus is beautiful and it looks exactly how I imagined college would look. The bad things are there too. I am from the south, Virginia, to be exact, and it seemed scary that almost every student I met was from the south, and tons were from Virginia. It seemed liked the school was full of southerners, not to say we are bad but the school was quite conservative. The school is not very diverse and has an extremely homogeneous student population. Also, the eating club system should be revamped. That was the worst part about Princeton. The eating clubs are everything they sound like, elitist, snobby and exclusive. I saw many a situation where students from rich families would form an eating club and would not allow in virtually anyone from a poor minority family. That disgusted me. Also, a boy who I looked up to while I was growing up, a boy who was the best at everything, didn't get into the eating club he wanted to get into, and he was depressed for the rest of his time. Also, another sad thing was that everyone can be in an eating club, there are less posh ones that you can just sign up for, and don't have to "bicker" to get in. The sign up eating clubs are the poor kids and minorities. That too was depressing. Basically, the school lives up to the title of being the "northernmost southern school". If I could choose my college again, I would choose a place that's a bit more liberal and diverse. I would probably choose Stanford or Yale.
