Making friends, outside of a club
With regard to selective club membership, I should note that I was one of the very few members of my class who were not selected for membership in a club. I was relegated to eating in the dining halls for four years where I also worked, thus saving a lot of money on top of my tuition scholarship. However, I had no lack of friends, both with club members and other classmates in the dormitory and in the classroom.
As a fourth-generation Princetonian I have no regrets regarding my Princeton attendance – even without female classmates!
