In Prospect Garden, where the lush colors of summer abound, water trickles down a centaur sculpture adorning a fountain. This short video gives a glimpse of Princeton's campus in the summer, accompanied by the sounds of the Princeton University Jazz Ensemble.

For the summer, most Princeton students leave campus for destinations and activities around the world. Others remain to continue research and work on a campus warmed by the sun. It is a time for rejuvenation and reflection. It is a time for absorbing the tranquility of Princeton's surroundings.

The song "Crystal Angel," performed by the Princeton University Jazz Ensemble, accompanies this video and offers a sense of the summer atmosphere on the Princeton campus.
