Degree: Pre-Medicine
Graduation Year: 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed my undergraduate experience at Princeton University. Princeton is renowned for its academic rigor and excellence, and I felt very fortunate to be amidst the brightest in the world. I never felt unsupported or alienated on campus. I forged relationships with classmates and faculty that have persisted beyond my graduation date. The tools instilled in me have remained and have served as an asset in my current position and are gifts I aim to keep with me in all of my future endeavors. .

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

Princeton is a wonderful institution in that they provide amazing financial aid to those in need in addition to challenging students with broadening perspectives, not just within the classroom, but with topics of social justice, race, and other important factors in life. However, the university is vary homogenous in terms of race and social class and if you are a minority of lower socio-economic status such as myself, you will feel like a token individual at times. Additionally, some individuals are too focused on climbing social ladders and gaining a network to work with in the future and that was something that made me feel very uncomfortable. In terms of my financial situation, my education, and the opportunities provided, it was a wonderful institution with a beautiful and safe campus with various amenities, in terms of diversity and being conscious of social issues, it was a bit more problematic.

Degree: Molecular Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

Princeton University provides a fantastic and well-rounded education. Because all students have to fulfill course requirements in different concentrations, everyone must explore a new area or one that they might not choose on their own. This is interesting on an academic front, but also encourages different types of students to interact with each other, so one isn't always in the same classes with the same people. One thing I wish was slightly different is that I wish the classes were a bit more applied. The basic information and depth of research was great, but it was sometimes hard to connect it to everyday life and think about it in a bigger context (especially for the sciences).

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2006

While the student body might seen homogenous to some, the size of the school made it much more diverse than some might think it could be. I wasn't the typical white, upper-class, prepster that many associate with Princeton, and I connected with some amazing people from all different backgrounds, races, viewpoints, and religions. I went from big fish, small intellectual pond in HS, to small fish, big intellectual pond and I actually loved that. I loved going toe-to-toe with friends, debating this esoteric topic or that current event, and being around people who weren't afraid to engage with others and the world around them on that intellectual level. Lastly, I'm forever grateful to the school for its policy of mostly giving grants, not loans for financial aid. I left there with zero debt and I now understand, more than ever, how important that was for my financial health as an adult, especially one who entered a field (media/journalism) that doesn't pay much.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2007

My public policy program at Princeton was excellent. I'd highly recommend it. Excellent professors and peers as well as interesting courses. I had small classes and tons of one-on-one supervision. In addition, my program provided me with the opportunity to travel to D.C. and to write a thesis my senior year.
