That's why I chose Princeton

A month after the release of the 17-minute YouTube clip “That’s why I chose Yale,” the Princeton University Office of Communications has uploaded a 2-minute video “Year of the Tiger.” However, to those of you hoping to see University students lip-synching in high definition, be prepared to be underwhelmed.

The clip’s high point is arguably a montage of Princeton student organizations’ performances, which are spliced with pictures of tigers and an accompanying adjective. Apparently, “A Tiger is… Magnificent, Strong, Intelligent, Bold, Proud, Fierce, Graceful.” Clearly, you should come to Princeton.

In the Office of Communication’s defense, they do include clips of students and alumni doing the locomotive cheer at the end of the clip, and honestly, how can you say no to those blazers?

The real problem is rhyming Princeton, lots of nice rhymes for Yale.
