Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey

We didn’t know much about Princeton University and thought we would pass it by on our college visit trip to the Northeast this summer. However, as we were driving through New Jersey on the way to Annapolis from Providence, our curiosity was suddenly roused, and we decided to spend a little time on the campus of Princeton University. Chartered in 1746, Princeton University is the fourth oldest university in the U.S. Home to the most beautiful Gothic buildings we have ever seen, Princeton University is especially known for its top-ranking excellence in undergraduate teaching.

Princeton is a small city with a population of around 30,000 people. On our brief visit there, beside admiring the architecture on the university campus, we also checked out the city’s public library, its main “drag” and Albert Einstein’s house.

The splendid Gothic architecture

The magnificent chapel

We were so enamored of the brilliantly ornate stained-glass designs inside the chapel of Princeton University. I myself would want to attend this university on the sole merit of the luminous, intricate beauty of its chapel’s stained-glass windows.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
