  • Yale!! There is a charisma to this place which cannot be redone. Also, amazing food options... definitely a stop for those on college tours
  • Yale goes all out to impress. The architecture is mainly Gothic. We took a tour with our daughter who is applying for colleges. It seems like Yale is trying to outdo Harvard for the most impressive buildings. We were able to tour the library which is designed like a Gothic Cathedral. Definitely over the top.
  • Yale university is one of the colonial colleges and 3rd oldestis a great and well known school for the highly (academically or athletically) qualified scholars. It comprises of different colleges but very organized as I have seen in the past 2 months.
  • Cool and unique place. A large and spacious university complex, with various facilities: shops, supermarkets, coffee shops, souvenir shops, clothes shops, etc. Magnificent architecture, nice and looks solid. Students look energetic and happy if I can study here :)....can I?
  • The day we visited campus, it was overcast and foggy. It was also quiet since it was during holiday break. Overall, it was like being in a different century with the beautiful, old architecture. You could feel the history and imagine carriages and horses passing up and down the streets. The doors, windows and details on the buildings were amazing and suggest a careful detail to creating beautiful minds through knowledge and the pursuit of truth.
