Yale is best defined by the word and. Yale is a research university and a liberal arts college. Its scholars are driven by innovation and more than 300 years of tradition. Yale students excel in the arts, humanities, social sciences, sciences, and engineering at the highest levels. Students of all backgrounds, beliefs, identities, and interests join a global community that values a multifaceted approach to undergraduate education.
All Yale undergraduates enroll in a single liberal arts college with 2,000 courses and 80 majors. Students are randomly assigned to Residential Colleges: close-knit communities housed in stunning buildings centered on courtyards. Each is a microcosm of Yale’s diverse student body, while preserving the intimacy of a small college.
Yale is committed to affordability and meets 100% of financial need - for all students, without loans. Yale’s policies mean that no student will ever need to decline a place in the class for financial reasons.

Yale University Reviews
Academics: some departments are better taught than other departments. Yale can be weaker in CS and Math compared to other universities, but most alums are still very successful. Like most colleges, there is a lot of independent learning and there are numerous resources to help you. The environment is not competitive unless premed.
Social life: Yale has an AMAZING social life compared to other universities of equal caliber. There is always something going on and you can be as social as you want. Social life is nonexistent during midterm season. There are parties, frats, concerts, woads, club formals, and many other events.
Sports: Not a big sports school but many students are involved in club sports.
Yale dining is delicious and healthy!
I admire how Yale fosters an environment that enables the realization of any idea or dream. As an engineer, I have especially appreciated the resources offered by the Center of Engineering, Innovation, and Design (CEID) and Tsai City to transform abstract ideas into physical products en route to commercialization. Yale provides a wealth of resources (mentorship and guidance, funds, and instruction) that allow students to pursue any projects they desire.
