Cultural institutions. - The original source of Princeton University, one of the largest in the United States, can be traced back to 1739, when the Synod of Philadelphia wanted to create a 'university that would rule the comparison with the other major America. Religious disagreements delayed, however, the foundation until 1746: in that year was established under the name College of New Jersey, the new school, which opened in 1747 in New Jersey. Was transferred almost immediately to Newark and, in 1752, in Princeton. In 1754, construction began on the first building, the Nassau Hall (named in honor of King William III of Nassau). There in 1783 G. Washington received the official thanks of Congress for the conduct of the war. The history of the university, who took the title in 1896 and it is unrelated to any religious denomination, is marked only by its progressive development, by successive additions of new faculties and reforms of internal systems, which tend to make more rigorous study. Located in the country (its 7 buildings occupy the center of a very picturesque esplanade) and equipped for the stable permanence of students, stands out among American universities for the character of his courses, in which, except in the right part d ' engineering, and humanistic orientation towards pure science prevails absolutely practical orientation of the applied sciences. This address was also established explicitly for the future, when the school was given the title of university. The curriculum includes a lower course (undergraduate schools), which releases bachelor's degrees, and an advanced course (graduate schools), after which you earned the title of master or doctor. In this course, each student specializes in a branch of studies included in the 15 faculties of the university and at the end of each year an examination which gives comprehensive examination. The final exam focuses on the work of the last two years. The individual classes are split into various groups, in which the lessons consist of lectures deprived of all formality, given by preceptors of arguments. This system (tutorial system) is followed especially in the faculties of philosophy, history, political science, art, languages. The university is governed by a board composed in part by students and chaired by the Governor of the State of New Jersey. Special systems allow pupils who are not able to fully pay their expenses, to cover them in whole or in part without gaining leave the residence in the university. Princeton University has a library of 700, 000 volumes, a natural history museum and one of historical art, an astronomical observatory.

So many apply to the same university

Everybody wants to go to Harvard, or Yale, or Princeton. And nobody wants to go to MiddleofNoWhere State University. Why? Because in the U.S., your university is your ticket to certain jobs.
In the U.S. we pay for the university diploma and not for the educational content. The goal is to have the most prestigious university on your diploma, and that will open doors. But does it have to be that way?
