Campus Dining: some days it's great, some days it's not. typical college dining

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: there's a lot of great restaurants and pizza places

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Yale has an absolutely beautiful campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: They treat alcohol and drug use as health issues, so you won't get in trouble if you are caught drinking.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The administration tries to give the image that the campus is really diverse in all aspects, but when you really get down to it, the majority of students are affluent white heterosexual males. That demographic still holds the highest position in campus, and in some departments, women still fight for acceptance (both as students and professors).

Off-Campus Dining: There are more than 100 restaurants I have yet to try after a year in residence. So far, I have found some of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at in the town.

Health & Safety: The Yale shuttle service provides door to door transportation after 6 p.m. for all those afraid to walk. They will also send an officer to escort you on foot to your destination if you are worried. However, the campus is very dangerous and there are a number of assaults each month.

Athletics: I do not participate in athletics myself, but have enjoyed attending many Yale varsity sports games.

5 College Senior

Majors: I have gotten a lot of professional experience in my field through connections I have made at the school. The pay is a little less than what I would expect after graduation but still quite high for my level.

Campus Strictness: The campus is not very strict, but rather the university takes it upon themselves to educate students to be very safe in terms of alcohol consumption etc.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I don't get involved much with the Greek life, so it is unfair of me to say.

5 College Senior

Facilities: The concert halls, libraries, athletic facilities, and outdoor campus are stunningly beautiful and effective. The opportunities in the community to create off-campus events are also very excellent.

4 College Senior

Facilities: The libraries are fantastic and full of anything you would want to study. The town as a whole is fantastic-though in the central green there is a major homeless problem.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The instruction I receive in my field is second to none for a masters degree in this country.

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Everyone takes their health and hygiene very seriously at this school. It shows in their appearance, vibrancy and ability to keep up with the workload.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: Yale School of Music provides full scholarships and small stipends to all admitted students. On-Campus work pays well and is enjoyable and related to my field of study.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-Campus housing can be nice, but is extremely overpriced for the location in New Haven.

College Junior

Drug Safety: Don't know that a good rating is referring to.

Yale is, in every sense of the word, an incredible place. Students love the faculty, the classes, and the opportunities, not only because they are among the best in the world, but because they are highly accessible and undergraduate-focused. Yale is a place where academic theory blossoms into reality and where experiences exist that can't be found anywhere else in the world. It is a great privilege for students to continually study under the most knowledgeable people in their fields, from Nobel Laureates to international statesmen. Even though the Yale experience can be rigorous and demanding, most students wouldn't trade their years here for anything.

Yale prepares its students to meet the world with energy and knowledge. Its liberal arts education teaches students to think, to analyze, to question, and to consider. Yale graduates can do nearly anything they want, from working with Goldman and Sachs to obtaining a Ph.D. in ethnomusicology. Essentially, Yale successfully prepares its students for the pursuit of their passions in any area of life.

What ultimately sets Yale apart is the people that comprise its community. Yalies (students, faculty, and staff) are dynamic, fascinating people who continually surprise each other with their passions, their opinions, and their enthusiasm. Every student has a unique story to tell and interests to pursue. Yale is amazing because it gathers these diverse and remarkable individuals together for the same ultimate purpose: to learn, to grow, to thrive, and to discover themselves.
