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.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 1978

My undergraduate degree only affected my career as far as that it helped me get into an excellent medical school which helped me do very well in residency and get a position on the faculty of the medical school where I have worked for many years. Even though I did not end up using it in my career, it was a great experience during my undergraduate years to do cutting edge research in genetics (back before the days of gene mapping and cloning)and I wish that I had talked to more people and had the courage to pursue the area in which I had a more passionate interest (genetics) rather than choosing to pursue medicine because the job market was more certain at that time. I have come to believe that , if you are passionate about an interest, you can find a way to earn money with that interest and will enjoy your career a lot more. The other great thing about my undergraduate experience was going away to a college out of my state and meeting a lot of people there who had come from very different backgrounds than I had come from and having the chance to be exposed to different cultures and ways of thinking. My political views and moral values were influenced greatly by my relationships with other students and teachers. The greatest impact of going to a school like Princeton was the chance to become friends with a lot of very smart and talented people who constantly challenged me to reconsider my outlook on the world.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

Tell us about your college experience.

It was absolutely the best choice for me. It had a ton of opportunities and I was surrounded by people who challenged me every day. The financial aid was really good too, so I graduated without any debt.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I'm torn on this issue. I loved studying psychology because I was so interested in it, and I managed to find a good job even though it wasn't the most rigorous major. Sometimes I wonder whether I could have done even more if I had chosen something like computer science instead.
