Walking around this beautiful campus you can feel the presence of academia in the air. The buildings are old but very well taken care of. I love the town of Princeton. Many, many restaurants and places to shop.

Check the website - search tours and information sessions then click on "current schedule" Looks like they have 2 tours on remaining Sundays in August at 1 pm and 3:30 pm, but check the website to be sure.
