Princeton University is a private Ivy League research university in Princeton, New Jersey, an hour from the cities of Philadelphia and New York. Founded in 1746 in Elizabeth as the College of New Jersey, Princeton is the fourth-oldest institution of higher education in the United States and one of the nine colonial colleges chartered before the American Revolution. Nassau Hall, built in 1756, is the oldest building on campus and former capital of the United States. To the south of Nassau Hall lies a courtyard that is known as Cannon Green where commencement activities are often held. Princeton provides undergraduate and graduate instruction in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and engineering.
