4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I would say that the administration overall works to keep the student's interests at the top of the priority. There have been some issues that have come up, academic and otherwise, but in these cases YCC (Yale College Council) has done a great job of confronting the administration and getting as much change as possible.

Greek Life: I say it's okay because it's so not necessary to have a great social life on campus. Fraternities and sororities have mixers and parties amongst themselves, but there are also plenty of other events that are with sports teams, or open to the student body as a whole. For those who aren't greek, nearly every student organization has a social side, which is why I think Greek life isn't too popular, because no one feels like they really need it.

Scholarships: School is expensive and as long as the federal government allows for schools to charge the max to students, they will continue to be drowned in student loans for the rest of their lives. There is no accountability or sense of responsibility from school administrators of the impact of their budgets being paid out on the backs of their student body.

Academics: I am a dual degree student so I have to take more classes than others, so my workload is quite large. But the teachers and your advisors are there if you need them.

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.
