Athletics: Sports are a big part of my schooling as I play on the women's ice hockey team. The school spirit is outstanding and we have a lot of support with our courses while being away for games.

Overall Experience: Yale has not only met all but has exceeded my expectations. I would recommend Yale to anyone and everyone!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: You're in New Haven, which isn't the safest city, but Yale does a lot to make sure you feel safe and secure. Security guards are everywhere. Yale itself is relatively isolated from the surrounding city. You'll be fine if you just follow regular common sense safety rules.

Overall Experience: There are so many course offerings, it's hard to choose. Shopping period is wonderful, but it also can be an added source of stress if you're indecisive, like I am. But if you choose well, you will find that your classes are engaging, your professors really care about teaching, and it's one of the best academic experiences available anywhere.

Overall Experience: I mean it's Yale...it's exactly what you'd expect it to be. Not much else to say here

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The residential college system really does provide a great community. And there are a lot of amenities in each college. Buildings are old though, and rooms are small/not very well kept.

Greek Life: I'm in a sorority, and I really like it. We have lots of mixers and parties to go to. My only complaint is that it's not as satisfying (as far as making actual friends goes) as I expected it would be.

Athletics: No one comes to Yale just for athletics, but if that's your thing, there's definitely something Yale has for you.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
