Princeton University

How many students does it take to change a light bulb at Princeton?

Two - one to mix the martinis and one to call the electrician.

What says...

This college is in many ways the most Ivy of the Ivies, a school steeped in East Coast tradition and catering to the most elite, and often most privileged, students America has to offer. Academically, it is a wonderful choice, competing with Harvard at the top of the rankings and in possession of some of the best professors on that side of the Atlantic. So if you can deal with wearing an awful lot of orange for the rest of your life, then this internationally acclaimed university may well be a good choice for you.
