5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: No student discounts, but New Haven has amazing food

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Wednesdays are pregames for Woads, Thursdays are the Baker's Dozen House and SAE late-night, and then Friday and Saturday are usually frat parties

5 College Freshman

Administration: Alcohol is treated as a medical issue, Frocos (freshman counselors) don't care. If you smoke, you might get 1 or 4 emails from your dean but from my friends' experiences, nothing ends up happening.

Scholarships: Yale is need-blind and they meet 100% of need. After I got my regular decision schools' FA packages, I and my mom both called the office to say that Pomona gave me $5000 more in loan-free package, and Yale ended up matching and throwing in an extra $2000. Always call!

Administration: Standing up to those Fossil Fuel Divestment nut-jobs is one of the best thing they ever did. Plus they use the money for cool things.

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.

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.

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.
