A stroll across Princeton University's campus reveals many treasures to be enjoyed by the attentive observer -- ornate archways, official seals, whimsical gargoyles, flowing epigraphy, and sculpture of all sizes and materials. Together, these create a place of beauty with numerous clues to a unique history. The meticulous details upon the walls of buildings are a monument to the fond dreams of architects and campus planners. Princeton's campus treasures are a rich blend of the old, the new, and the renewed, and like great thoughts, they weather time.
