        1986-1991, AB

        Princeton is a special place for many reasons. Permit me to list three among many: (i) your classmates: while I don't doubt that there are many institutions with wonderful students, I believe that the focus on the undergraduate experience empowers 17-22 year olds to push themselves mentally and socio-emotionally in a protected environment that is unrivaled; (ii) the option value inherent within the degree: from personal experience, I have enjoyed a number of different careers since Old Nassau and I believe that the Princeton degree provided comfort to employers and others that my "professional reinventions" were not without some merit and probability of success; and (iii) the enduring sense of community after the undergraduate years: the Princeton University isn't unique in its support of its alumni, but I posit that it is virtually peerless with respect to the willingness of the alumni to set aside all manner of difference to assist someone just upon...

The school is big enough to offer multiple educational and cultural activities, but definitely not too big. You get to know people from various years, you get to know the faces, and you feel like you belong. Shirley Tillman was the President during my time, and she was remarkable - you could feel her mark in everything, see her smiling at university and community events, and even write to her and get a warm, thorough response the same day. On a less educational note - the ceramics studio was one of our favorite places to go (tucked at the basement of the Wilson building, but this is so typical of Princeton - to get to the good stuff you have to dig in), the students' Shakespeare company was phenomenal, as were student productions of Peter Pan and others.
