Brought together in an environment that encourages academic excellence and that supports a vibrant campus life, Princeton students have much to offer each other, both in and out of the classroom.
Princeton undergraduates benefit from academic and extracurricular opportunities that help them achieve at the highest scholarly levels and prepare them for positions of leadership and service.
Central to student life is the four-year residential college system, where students develop friendships, receive academic advising and participate in intellectual, cultural, recreational and social activities.
Beyond the classrooms and the residential colleges, students have countless avenues to explore new interests and connect with others. University-sponsored programs and more than 200 student-run organizations offer undergraduates a wealth of opportunities ranging from the arts to civic engagement, from student government to athletics, from religious and cultural groups to journalism and debate. Many students pursue opportunities beyond Princeton's gates, including overseas study, research and internships.
Every Princeton student has an individual story about who they are and what this University means to them. Taken together, these stories offer a good sense of what it is like to be at Princeton. We invite you to meet some of Princeton's current students.
