Princeton has a very large number of student groups that cater to all the different associations one has. They allow for as little or as much commitment as one is willing to give. The student body is so vast and diverse, studying with all the people around me a true pleasure.
Though when taking introduction classes to specific subjects, lectures are large, however as soon as you start taking an higher level class you are in a class with very few students and the professor. It is very easy to get to know professors and vice versa. They are extremely accessible as well as being required to teach every lecture.
People are involved in various different groups here on campus. I am an Orange Key Campus Tour Guide, the class of 2013 Vice President for student government, and a leader in the Universities outdoors program which runs a large pre-orientation program for incoming freshmen every year.
I literally could not be happier with time here at Princeton. Aside from the fact that the classes and professors are all top of the line, the people I have been exposed to here has been the real treasure. Princeton attracts such an interesting group of students that I have learned just as much from my peers as from the professors. The school is a very personal experience on one of the most beautiful campuses.
I think a common stereotype that Princeton receives is the false assumption that all the students are extremely elitist. This is highly false and only represents a very small part of the population. Princeton is such a vastly diverse student body with people from all different backgrounds, that it is upsetting to hear this wrong stereotype.
