Alumni & Student Reviews

Career Preparation

What letter grade would you give your school on how well it prepares students for a career in the real world?

4.1428571428571 Based on 7 Reviews
  • Alumni
    Economics, Class of 1976

    Princeton is a liberal arts school with limited training in specific tools, but is an environment where learning is valued, so I felt prepared to acquire whatever skills I needed.

    5 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    Psychology, Class of 2010

    There is a system where one can reach out to alumni. There are also career counselors (e.g.: pre-law advisor).

    4 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    French and Italian, Class of 2006

    Alumni networks, internship and summer programs

    5 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    History, Class of 1984

    Good alumni network, helpful career counseling (most useful up to 5 years out)

    4 Rated January 2016

Students and Culture

What letter grade would you give the students/culture at your school?

4.4285714285714 Based on 7 Reviews
  • Alumni
    Economics, Class of 1976

    There is no single culture or typical student. But most students are driven to want to be the best (and willing to do the work to get there).

    5 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    Psychology, Class of 2010

    Competitive but accepting of others. Everyone is used to being a high-achiever, so one is made to feel ashamed of wanting to work very hard for high grades.

    4 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    Mathematics, Class of 2014

    They were very smart and hard-working.

    5 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    History, Class of 1984

    Brilliant and fun. Culture suffers from usual "correctness" issues, periodically.

Facilities

What letter grade would you give the facilities at your school.

5 Based on 7 Reviews
  • Alumni
    Economics, Class of 1976

    Ivy League -- excellent facilities. The student gym is showing it's age. Dining halls, labs, etc are all state of the art.

    5 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    Psychology, Class of 2010

    High quality, usually the latest model/edition/version. There is old, historic architecture so those buildings tend to be more difficult to modernize, but generally there is no real difference. Many of the dorms have been recently renovated. Dining halls (especially the older ones) have a very nice environment to sit and eat within.

    5 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    French and Italian, Class of 2006

    Excellent quality, well-funded (no surprise)

    5 Rated January 2016

Activities and Groups

What overall letter grade would you give the activities/groups at your school?

4.7142857142857 Based on 7 Reviews
  • Alumni
    Economics, Class of 1976

    Princeton students are all over the map with regard to interests and activities. So there is a student group for almost any activity, and there is leeway to create a new group if there is a critical mass of interested students.

    5 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    Psychology, Class of 2010

    Eating clubs are very popular. Also sports teams (Division I and intramural)

    4 Rated January 2016

    Literally hundreds of activities --
