“The new Yale”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

They are fixing it up a bit. Nice! The new med school is growing so much. Great to see. But a lot of old buildings are now gone that I knew but out with the old and in with the new. Hope they do great things with all of it.

“Great and peaceful place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

We visited Yale on June 11th - spent a few hours walking around the environments with its old and fantastic buildnings.
The most awesome is the Old Campus - I can stay there for hours feeling the history.

“Great place - Lots of resources”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

Yale University has a lot of resources compared to other universities. I used its libraries on regular basis. There are lots of things you can do in the area. The campus itself is old so there is this antique feeling to it more so than you'd experience at all at all other schools. Basically, I only have great things to say about Yale.

“Beautiful architecture but scary area”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

My husband and I stopped at YALE as we were driving from Connecticut to Massachusetts and drove through New Haven.....pretty depressing. It was hard to believe one of the countries best universities is in one of the worst areas. It also felt odd that their bookstore was a Barnes and Noble. Fun to see but don't go alone.
