Though a little worn down, Princeton students never stop. Day and night and through the next day, Pton students write, read, and hang out. There's always something new to finish, so study time is always broken by study breaks in order to keep us all happy. Students learn to manage their time well here, but it's a general understanding that as soon as you finish, there's more, so don't forget to take breaks (and eat at meal times) and meet with your friends. I've made several very close friends this past year, and at the same time, several large leaps in academic ability and confidence. At first I took easier courses, but now I feel like I'm challenging myself to my limits. The student body was a strange mass to get used to, but now I'd never leave. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to change what's around you instead of "getting sucked in" as many public school city kids like myself are worried about in entering ivys like Princeton. I'm now studying religion, a topic I abhored in high school, and it is intellectually exciting to the point that I'm looking into grad schools this month. I wasn't a super kid when I applied here, but I feel like I'm on my way now. Above all: the work is heavy BUT you don't have to come prepackaged to be able to do it. I learned when I got here, and there are plenty of university resources (writing center, science/math study halls, study skills workshops) to teach you after you get here. All you have to worry about is having the right ingredients, Princeton will make you into the cake. Feel free to email me with questions!
questionHello, I'm going to be interviewed by an alumn on Friday. Can you tell me some things about the Religious studies program that stood out to you and what I might expect from the interviewer?
