We visited Yale to check it out for our daughter! Needless to say we loved the place and it would be great if our daughter could be accepted there.

As a huge Gilmore Girls fan, a trip to Eat Coast USA wouldn't be complete without a trip to Yale. It is an absolutely beautiful collection of buildings.

Otherwise, you will find typical American Gothic 1890-1930´s buildings the whole city is the different buildings of Yale. A must see is the old books library, that is something and if you are there you must stop by. People very friendly and helpful

Yale is a very beautiful campus in the traditional Ivy League sense, a lot of history and very nice architecture. The original quad on "Old Campus" is very nice and the Sterling Library is impressive.

salve, relativamente alla Yale School of Medicine, volevo sapere se c'è una pausa delle lezioni, spring break, per cui il college resta chiuso per qualche giorni nei mesi compresi tra febbraio e agosto.

If you go alone, you can only visit he University from the outside I think. With the guide you enter at least to the gardens and see things from inside. If you go alone, also you miss lots of interesting information. The... More
