4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love it. I would choose it again. It's been a home away from home. Of course, there have been some problems, but no school is perfect (and no home is perfect either).

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Be smart, and you'll be fine. Most of the lines about New Haven being a "bad city" are just racist/classist/stupid. Yale Police and Security are great, and as long as you're personally aware and don't do anything dumb, New Haven is very safe and is a great city to live in.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Had a rough time with some intro STEM classes, but have had the best time in social science classes. Awesome profs, TAs, variety of courses, variety of seminars v lectures. Hard to get into seminars but great when you do.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Can't say too much here, but pretty confident in the career office services here to assist in job/internship prospects.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Very safe - but poor mental health services

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.
