Notable alumni include James Madison, Michelle Obama, Jeff Bezos, Woodrow Wilson, Alan Turing, Richard Feynman, F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Currently, the university offers 55 interdisciplinary undergraduate certificate programs, 18 master’s degree programs, 42 doctoral departments and programs, and 33 interdisciplinary and interdepartmental programs. The university offers extensive academic and research support to students with a five to one student to faculty ratio.

Princeton Research in 2019 raised total funding of $383 million. Just in that year, seven startups were formed from discoveries made at Princeton. It also had 120 industry projects and was granted 48 patents. The institution boasts of 816 professors who are engaged in research.

Today, the university is ranked by some as the number one among national universities. It has always been a top-ten school in the world when it comes to reputation. And it is ranked as the top university for the physical sciences.

The university has a vibrant campus life. It has more than 200 campus buildings with 6 residential colleges sprawled across its 600 acres. Around 98% of their undergraduate students live on their campus. Additionally, students get to choose from and join more than 300 student organizations.
