4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Yale Health is meh. Safety here is great. Sexual misconduct is addressed seriously here, but still has major flaws.

Athletics: Decent amount of places to work out, Yale isn't extremely into varsity sports but a good number of people get excited about them. IM's are where it's at, though.

Administration: Yale treats drinking as a health concern, not an offense.This means that health is the number one thing they focus on when it comes to dealing with student drinking.

Scholarships: This school cost me less than any other school I was accepted to. The Student Income Contribution sorta sucks, but the aid here is fantastic for low-income students.

Campus Food: 12 dining halls to choose from plus Commons, gluten-free options, pretty varied, vegetarian friendly, can use Lunch swipes at an overpriced snack store, Durfee's

Campus Housing: Beautiful buildings, residential college system makes for a cozy social atmosphere, costs a lot but what Ivy doesn't, close-ish to most buildings, housing is great

Scholarships: Finding scholarships and grants is relatively easy, however the process is quite hard to apply. They do provide everything online but I feel like I have to navigate through a bunch of pages to find what I am looking for.

Party Scene: It is really fun to have a party in your suite, as well as to go to the off-campus frats for a party. There are also a lot of parties for certain groups and mixers that can be really fun if you are involved in the group!

Campus Food: It's great because there is a variety, and you can always get a salad or make a sandwich. There is vegan and gluten-free options as well. The system of using your lunch swipe for a Durfee's swipe is OK, but the food in Durfee's is way overpriced so you end up not getting the equivalent of a lunch swipe.

Campus Housing: While freshman year you are on "Old Campus", this fosters a close connection between all the freshmen. Then, the next three years you live in the residential college you are randomly assigned to your freshman year. This is awesome because there are amazing amenities like a gym, dining hall, even an art studio just a short walk away from your suite! It is truly convenient and great because you get to choose who you want to live with during these years.

Off-Campus Housing: Due to the safety surrounding the area off-campus housing has the potential for safety issues.

Greek Life: Greek atmosphere does not play into the community a lot.

Campus Food: Eating options are great and varied off campus and not in dining buildings.

Majors: Majors are really easy to switch since you don't really have to commit until junior year (and even then switching is possible). Some majors require applications if there is high demand but not many.

Athletics: Considering we're an Ivy League, we've been sort of overshadowed by other big name sports colleges. However, we do not cease to have endless amounts of spirit and love for our sports teams, especially when Harvard-Yale games come around in any sport. We really love Yale sports (and hate Harvard).

Campus Food: For the most part, the food is wonderful. Probably some of the best college food you'll come across. However, some of the ethnic foods they make aren't quite good due to lack of seasoning/spice. The rice is just always bland, for example.

Campus Housing: The residential college system here is wonderful. The buildings are astonishing externally and more than satisfying internally. You have everything you could possibly need for everyday life within your residential college. The only unfortunate thing is that you don't live in/near your residential college freshmen year, but Old Campus is also beautiful and great, so it's not so bad.

Local Area: New Haven has plenty of cool things to do. However, it's very easy to get bored of things after a while. It takes some exploring sometimes but there are definitely more than enough things to do here. Plus, train access to NYC is really easy and pretty cheap, so if you run out of things to do here, you can hop over to NYC for more.

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many good restaurants in New Haven, including two of the best pizza shops in the country. There are a lot of wonderful Thai and Indian places that I frequent and are basically on campus. I'm convinced no other college has access to this much good local food.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
