I certainly learned how to break down a text at Princeton, which helps me break down a script – or at least that’s the line I feed my parents when they start wondering where all that good money went.

Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi
I arrived at Princeton as a graduate student from the University of Manitoba in 1958. To my great good fortune, I fell into work with Bob Dicke, a truly great physicist who decided a few years before that that gravity is too important to ignore, as it had been in recent years in physics.

Richard P. Feynman
Children are amazing, and while I go to places like Princeton and Harvard and Yale, and of course I teach at Columbia, NYU, and that’s nice and I love students, but the most fun of all are the real little ones, the young ones.

I loved college, I loved Princeton.
In 2010, The Princeton Review ranked Colgate the most beautiful campus in America – I agree.
