Major: Art & Design Department (This Major's Salary over time)
The social life at Princeton is dominated by the eating clubs, which are a combination of country club and sorority/fraternity. The town offers very little to college students, though very safe and clean.

I've had excellent teachers here that excited me in the course subjects and terrible classes in which the material studied was crappy and the professor's lectures consisted of worming his theories into the minds of students. Some departments are well-funded while the programs and smaller departments are not. Anyone who is interested in the arts (performing, visual, etc.) should think carefully before enrolling, as resources for the arts are fewer than those at other similar universities (Yale, for instance).

Too many students here are quietly taking antidepressants, drinking too much, or resigned to being unhappy with the academic side of their college experience. Perhaps these aspects are true for most other universities as well, but Princeton's polish and prestige may mask the more disturbing aspects of campus life to those outside its walls.
