4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Yale has many precautions and information sessions regarding safety and sexual assault. There are many resources and much awareness.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not really well informed about Greek Life and don't know much about it.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The facilities are great and Payne Whitney Gym is one of the greatest gyms in the country.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not aware of many off-campus housing options because I am required to live on-campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Depending on where you go, you have different experiences. My favorite is an Indian restaurant named Tikkiway.

4 College Freshman

Administration: There are some great faculty members on campus who are there to look out for you and only have your best interests in mind.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The Yale party scene is pretty fun if you have connections and know where to look.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Yale, with the size of its endowment, should have better financial aid policies. Even if families do not have to contribute, students have to pay up to $6,400 just from their student job. This contribution limits students' abilities to perform since they are so busy working, and despite Yale's promise that students will graduate debt-free, many students must take out loans to cover their contribution. In comparison to other Ivy Leagues, Yale could do better.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food, like at any other university, has its good days and its bad days. There is always variety with some regular staples like a salad bar, a yogurt bar, a cereal bar, and Stiles always has pizza and ice cream readily available.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Yale is a wonderful campus with beautiful architecture and people.

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.

5 College Freshman

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

5 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

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!

4 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

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.
