5 College Freshman

Diversity: At Yale University, there are paople from almost every state and many countries.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. Everything that I need is very close. One thing I dislike is that Freshmen cannot pick their roommates. Another is that the rooms are very small. Otherwise, I love living at Yale University.

Diversity: As someone who went to a totally homogenous high school, I think Yale's diversity is great. Definitely there are situations that make it more difficult to be of a lower socioeconomic status, but I feel like that's something that's changing and getting more and more attention.

Technology: I haven't met anyone without a laptop here, but the university has so many incredible resources to supplement that, including Bass Library's Media Reserve and IT help.

Majors: There are only a few majors you have to apply for at Yale (including mine), which vary in selectivity. But the rest of them you can just declare whenever you want, and it's super easy to change your mind.

Local Area: New Haven is actually a great city, despite its bad rep for safety. There is so much to do and see, whether you're into the outdoors, the arts, food, etc.

Health & Safety: Yale Health is just really slow, which makes it inconvenient. Lots of times students will go when they're sick and get sent home with cough drops. Yale security does a great job; New Haven isn't the safest place, but they do everything they can to keep us up to date.

Campus Housing: I love living in suite-style dorms, and the residential college system is the best. They're great facilities, and the set-up also really foster's community.

Scholarships: Yale was my first choice school and they gave me the best financial aid package. It's need-based and no loans, and for my friends who didn't get the aid they thought they needed, they were able to work with the financial aid office to work something out. They also have an ISA that helps fund study abroad in the summer!

Weather: New England weather! We have all the seasons, which means snow, rain, sunshine, etc. But the nice thing is that CT never gets anything too extreme. (Exceptions were Hurricane Sandy and Winter Storm Nemo, but hey...)

4 College Junior

Administration: 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.

3 College Junior

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.

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.
