A Day in the Life at Every Ivy League College

If you want to take a shot at attending an Ivy, it’s worth taking some time to ask yourself where you’d be a good fit. Harvard or Yale? Princeton or Penn? The answer to that question may play a big role in how happy you are on campus.

And even if Ivy League colleges aren’t your bag, have you ever wanted to peek behind the curtain and find out what life is really like there? If so, you can get a glimpse into all of them right here.
