We visited Yale University at the end of october. It was wonderful to walk around the campus, even without a guided tour. We would highly recommend to visit the Yale Art Gallery. We also visited Harvard and Brown, but we found Yale and its historical...More

They do nothing for the town of New Haven, crummy access to anything. Harvard is more well rounded. Love the blue horns at Football games (haven't been to one in a long time, however).

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...More

Granted that I don't visit that many institutions of higher learning, I was still astounded by the exterior beauty of many of the buildings at this famous university. Inside some of the dorms is less memorable, but Yale has a wonderful atmosphere of history mixed...More

One of the most beautiful campuses I have ever been to. It's downtown, and many of the courtyards are closed to the public (the students use access cards to get in and out), but you can get in and grab some shots as they go...More
