Princeton University in late autumn 

I walked across the campus from the Dinky station this afternoon, and snapped a few pics that some of you, at least, might enjoy.

Great pictures!

I did this exact walk about a month ago when I was on campus conducting interviews for my firm. Sadly, the day was rainy and gloomy; but it's always a little happier at Old Nassau.

Nice photos, what was your implement of choice ?

If you had been doing that walk about 3 decades ago, you might have been hit near Blair Arch steps with a water balloon launched from a funnelator by, um, friends of mine standing on the roof of Foulke Hall tower. They learned to "walk in mortar fire" as freshmen.

Great shots, though it is remarkable how relatively empty the campus is on a Friday afternoon.

Always thought UVA was bested only by Princeton and Stanford in terms of the beauty of its grounds.

UVA is spectacular. I remember walking across the UVA campus in January 1980, at about 5 in the morning, on my way to catch the Southern Crescent back up to New Jersey. There was a new fallen snow, and that made Mr. Jefferson's already beautiful university nothing short of astonishing.

Great photos of an unbelievably elite university. Long may it last!! Thanx, Tom

Princeton U. is a lovely place...if you can get by its political leanings.
