One question many prospective students may ask as they begin the college search process is, "Will I fit in here?" The publication "Experience Princeton: Diverse Perspectives" aims to answer that query by highlighting Princeton University's diverse and welcoming community of students, faculty and staff.

"Princeton University is home to a diverse community of scholars and students who hail from a dazzling variety of ethnic, religious, racial, geographic and socioeconomic backgrounds," Princeton President Christopher L. Eisgruber said. "The perspectives that all of us bring to campus enrich the University in a myriad of ways, smashing old stereotypes, provoking new visions of what our world can be, and creating a campus life that is vibrant, colorful and inclusive."

Students come to Princeton from across the United States and the world. During this academic year, approximately 42 percent of undergraduates are Americans of color and nearly 12 percent are international students.

"Diverse Perspectives" highlights the variety of individuals and interests that exist on campus, enriching the education that undergraduate students receive during their four years at Princeton. Current students, faculty and administrators talk about the interests and perspectives they bring to campus and how they learn from those who differ from them — in classrooms, residence halls, dining facilities, athletic fields and across the University.
