I looked at several colleges where athletics were the selling point of the school, and obviously this is not true for Yale. If you're looking for a school where football is king, look elsewhere, you will be disappointed.

Guys & Girls:
In my personal experience, guys here are attractive. They're generally really fun people, but they all have this really odd quirky side that I guess can be attractive, but most of the time, it's just not. Then there are the guys who are preppy as all get out, and might as well be swaddled in their douche-baggery.

The atmosphere is okay, like I honestly don't have much to say on the subject because if you want to you can actually just ignore the city population or the population of nearby universities, but on the other hand if you want you can totally interact a lot with other universities. It's just your personal preference.

I am basically not paying a dime to attend Yale. Their financial aid department is actually one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I'm more thankful for the financial aid at Yale than for anything else.
College Freshman 2013-12-15T20:50:38Z
Okay, you get to live in f***ing quasi-castles. End of story. It's amazing.
College Freshman 2013-12-15T20:49:34Z
It's pretty diverse. Basically my world view has rapidly expanded since I've gotten on campus. The diversity is incredible.
College Freshman 2013-12-15T20:47:59Z
It's definitely much better than any other campus I've been on, but I guess like any dining experience, it has its bad nights.
College Freshman 2013-12-15T20:46:21Z
I'd choose this school over any other school in the country. It's fantastic. On top of incredible academic opportunities, I still have the opportunities to break loose and relax and be an actual person in college. It's the best decision I've made so far in my life.

Okay, I'm from the South, like extremely southern, like coastal southern, and that probably makes me biased. However, it's freezing in the winter. I mean FREEZING. I've never felt cold like this in my entire life. I mean, finally seeing snow for the first time was awesome, but then it NEVER WENT AWAY. It's not enough to make me regret the decision to attend this school, but let's just say I don't leave the dorm much when it's winter.

Health & Safety:
We're always notified if there is crime on campus, and there are security numbers you can call at any time of day to get someone to walk you anywhere if you feel unsafe. There are security phones all over campus you can call if you need help, and you can always see a security guard walking around at night. It's really safe.
College Freshman 2013-12-15T20:40:29Z
Honestly couldn't be better. Police and Security guards are super helpful and the campus is extremely secure. Administration treats underage drinking as a health issue and not a disciplinary one, so freshman ragers are commonplace. No one cares if you bring people in and out of your suite. It's actually the best campus I've been on in regards to personal freedoms.

It's pretty decent. In suite parties vary from place to place, but most are pretty good, just depends on who's throwing the party. Toad's is a wasteland, but when you're finishing up a sloppy saturday or wednesday it can be a fun place to land. Box is cool, but honestly I don't go much. On the most part, you're pretty limited to party suites or mixers sponsored by organizations, and those vary a lot on how much of a success they are.

School-sponsored parties are great, but the nightlife in the city is average
College Junior 2013-11-29T03:41:08Z
I'm in grad school, so I'm not familiar with how strict the school is with undergraduates
College Junior 2013-11-29T03:37:13Z
When the shuttle is running on time, it's pretty convenient, but it often does not function well and having to wait outside in the cold is terrible
College Junior 2013-11-29T03:35:02Z
Off-campus dining is actually pretty good, but it's difficult to get food late at night and there are absolutely no options that are close to the graduate school buildings on Science Hill
College Junior 2013-11-29T03:33:23Z
Financial aid process is great, but the financial aid that's actually given is pretty mediocre
College Junior 2013-11-29T03:32:40Z
It's New Haven - enough said
College Junior 2013-11-29T03:31:12Z
I do not live in campus housing
College Junior 2013-11-29T03:30:00Z
Guys & Girls:
The dating scene is absolutely abysmal. Most guys only want to hookup
College Junior 2013-11-29T03:29:03Z
Wonderful community of students, but not sure if the degree that I'm getting has much value
College Junior 2013-11-29T03:28:34Z
Not sure what great or bad means in this case, but I think that drug use is not prevalent
College Junior 2013-11-29T03:27:33Z
Social scene is good, but the graduate schools don't have great campus space
College Junior 2013-11-29T03:27:33Z
Science and technology facilities are mediocre, but the school has wonderful speaker series
College Junior 2013-11-29T03:24:58Z
Quality of off-campus housing really depends on how good of a landlord you have. If you have a bad landlord, then housing will be a huge issues because the school does not aid students at all in finding campus housing
Sorry, there are no reviews.
