  • We came here from California to attend school tour. Amazing school and Amazing staff. Hopfully we will be back. My daughter loves the school. We met Rachel in Admin building, extremely friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. She gave us all the information. We went for a walk before the tour, school is by far surpasses Harvard and Boston U. Very safe place and many amenities. Dormitories look nice and secure.
  • This school looks amazing! I can't wait to hopefully get accepted into this school when I'm old enough. My best friend and I hope to both get into this school together. This school is perfect for the both of us because it's a few hours from home, lovely campus, and has the right degrees for the jobs we would like in the future.
  • AWESOME.I studied here and now my annual salary is 100000$.😄Good if u can get admission.
  • It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times. A comprehensive review of the Yale University facilities. 1. Athletic Center: 2.5 stars No urinals. Signs for not disposing sanitary napkins down toilet. Must have once been a ladies room. Two ply toilet paper. Good and fancy locking mechanisms. Festooned with graffiti Impressive but dirty handicap stall. 2. Sterling Memorial Library: 3.5 stars Two ply perforated toilet paper. Average dull sliding lock mechanism. Tame flush. White tiled walls exhibit cleanliness and uniform. Urenals with automatic flush with excellent response time. Baby changing station that can fit progressively chubby babies. Corners of washing station is not lighted well. Outlets next to sinks and on wall. Ventilation is adequate fastened with Phillips head screws. Very sturdy. Smell of feces taints the air. Handicap bathroom very clean with retractable bar. However it is small, but not small enough for a chair. Bay west toilet paper dispenser. Kimberly Clark air purification technology. Front entrance door is sturdy and solid. If the facilities at this institution are to reflect the academics present there, then the academics must be quite mercurial, vacillating from the astounding to the underwhelming. Yale must remember the ageless maxim: "Everybody poops."
  • The person who runs this is very unorganized, not understanding of what needs to be done and how long itll take and is a very rude lady. It is usually a hectic place from what many of the workers have said. Yes yale is a good school but i would not recommend going to this one. Hopefully they straighten up and get more organized soon or else they will have a bad reputation with people they work with.
