It was cold in March but still we could walk around and feel the campus and its history. It was not very crowded, not so many students around as it was holiday I think.

Walking around campus of this Historic Ivy League University is interesting and fascinating. The architectural styles on the buildings are amazing. Well-maintained and clean campus.

I can't say much of the school itself but that it is a beautiful historical site. If you around, take a tour. It is really nice.

Small and in the middle of new haven which can be sketchy but beautiful. Great to walk around and just be able to take it all in.

I think your tour experience depends on your tour guide. Mine was gorgeous but lacking in excitement. Very knowledgeable though and you could clearly hear the school pride in his experiences at Yale. Amazing architecture!

Yale University seem to be top notch from what we gathered during our visit. The tour by student was thorough and informative. I had misgivings about safety in New Haven, as I lived there one summer many years ago, but the campus community seems to...More
