I'm less than than two days from finishing my first year (I'm procrastinating badly) and what a year it's been. If you want to be challenged, Princeton will challenge you and then some. People here are definitely the
work hard, party hard
type. I don't really party…not my thing, but the university definitely provides tons of fun ways to get away from your studies.

Classes are difficult of course, but I've had really good experiences with professors. I'm not the type to be all up for having long, intellectual conversations with professors, but they were always available for me. One of my professors always had a 5-10 minute email response time even in the wee hours of the morning. They seem to really care.

There are a bajillion extracurricular things going on, and most of them are actually GOOD.

The campus is lovely. If you fancy going to hogwarts, you should come here. I basically live in a castle.

The only thing that's not great is the fact that it's SUPER easy to be burned out. I know a few people who have had to take semesters off because of it. There's the policy of grade deflation, meaning that only 35% of the grades in a given class can be in the 'A' range. So there's definitely competition.
