Princeton University

Princeton University is a private Ivy League research university in Princeton, New Jersey. 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. The institution moved to Newark in 1747, then to the current site nine years later, where it was renamed Princeton University in 1896.

If a eating club is not a "bicker" club, then it is a sign in club. While Princeton's social scene is often criticized for being elitist or closed-off, sign-in clubs are meant to remedy this misconception. Entry into a sign in club is as simple as signing ones name, as well as showing interest in the club. Additionally, sign in clubs tend to be more inviting in general, host more open events, and have more diverse crowds. The choice of whether to choose a sign in or bicker club is entirely dependent on how attractive a club's culture is to the student. Very often, students choose to undergo bicker because they feel they would be more at home, welcomed, or have more fun with the type of people who belong to a bicker club.

Princeton has a rather unique social scene, in that it revolves around one street (Prospect) which is directly on campus. Lining both sides of the street are eating clubs, which serve as the party, dining, as well as social centers for a majority of the student body. Admission to the clubs depends on the club, and there are two different types. Bicker clubs require prospective members to "bicker" to enter. Similar to pledging a fraternity or rushing a sorority, most bicker clubs require students to undergo numerous nights of various social events, which allow members to get a feel for the prospective members. Alcohol is officially banned, but the culture of the different clubs determines if people show up sober, kinda sober, or drunky.
