            Top-class Library and lab.

          • Testimony
            1967-1971, BSEE

            I decided to go to Princeton when I was 18 years old. Looking back on that decision, I now realize how fortunate I was to make the right decision. I know so much more now than I did then, but I have never regretted that decision and would not change it even if I could. The quality of my education, both in and out of the classroom, was superlative. My regret - that I have not been able to make it back to more reunions.

          • Testimony
            1978-1985, Masters

            The value of my education has increased over the years. I was fortunate enough to win a full scholarship thanks to the generosity and funding of this university. It doesn't get much better than that.
