From Princeton

Princeton University is a place where you can allow yourself to be different because you will fit right in. We are a world-class research university and residential community that values compassion for others as much as a passion for academic research. Our liberal arts curriculum allows for deeper, more meaningful levels of learning. Students declare one of our 37 majors and can earn one or more of our 50+ minors or certificate programs.

Here, every student completes a senior thesis in a field of their choice and is guided through the process by a faculty mentor. Princeton’s engaged faculty, small class sizes and accessible advisers ensure that all students are supported, motivated and encouraged.

And know that Princeton is attainable, accessible and affordable. You can graduate from Princeton with little to no debt. Our no-loan financial aid policy replaces student loans with grants that do not need to be paid back. Not only is Princeton affordable, but it can often be less expensive than a state school.
