  • Beautiful University, some buildings open to visits, worth losing half an afternoon. On the way back, stop at the Little Italy of New Haven, very good, very worth knowing. The cafeteria near the law school is very cool, with sensational service.

  • Yale University worth a visit for its old buildings and university environment. There is a mixture of sensations when entering rooms that resemble Harry Potter movies but with a young atmosphere and throbbing. A walk through the streets and malls seems a throwback in some areas but includes some beautiful contemporary buildings.

  • Yale University is an American private Ivy League research university in New Haven, Connecticut. Founded in 1701 in Saybrook Colony as the Collegiate School, the University is the third-oldest institution of higher education in the United States. The school was renamed Yale College in 1718 in recognition of a gift from Elihu Yale, who was governor of the British East India Company. Established to train Congregationalist ministers in theology and sacred languages, by 1777 the school's curriculum began to incorporate humanities and sciences. In the 19th century the school incorporated graduate and professional instruction, awarding the first Ph.D. in the United States in 1861 and organizing as a university in 1887.[6]
  • Theres alot of drugs and crazy parties on the campus, its pretty great.
  • This looks like an amazing school to study at. I would love to go to this school. But I'm going in sixth grade next year but 6 and a half years I'll be going to college soon and this is my dream college.
  • This college is not too good, there is any college better than. this college just expensive, but don't have quality
  • They have the second best art program in the country it would be a honor and a dream to go here but I could never get in! My gfades definitely aren't good enough and i know I can draw but probably not good enough to even get noticed here but I still have a dream to go here.
