5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are the finest of their fields and love teaching. Yale is one of the premier research universities, but a special emphasis is placed upon the undergraduate college. We have hundreds of amazing extra curriculars and an unparalleled course catalogue. Yale is a very special place, not the least of which is because of its people.

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus and am extremely comfortable walking alone at night. There is always a security presence at all hours of the day and night. I have never experienced or known anyone who has experienced any form of crime on campus.

Campus Housing: The dorms vary extremely depending on what college you belong to, but every dorm and college has an amazing community of people that it really doesn't matter where you live as long as you are with those people. Each college has their own amazing amenities such as a gym, late night snack store, theaters, and other unique amenities. The housing process is relatively straight forward and not a huge topic of drama or hassle.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It is possible to be very much a part of the social scene at my school without participating in Greek life. There is no real difference between Greek and non-Greek participating students. Greek life is mostly seen as a way to meet new people by those involved and as the party capitals of campus for those not involved in Greek life.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports do not play a huge role in campus life except on some occasions, such as when playing our rival. The biggest sporting event is "The Game," a football game between Yale and Harvard that is well attended and includes a lot of spirit. This is not the norm however and most people do not participate in the sports culture.

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.
