Favorite things about Yale

<p>What do you like about Yale?</p>

<p>I like the common rooms. They are so ornate, like this one: <a href="http://www.studentsreview.com/univ_pics/260_g_1014486456.jpg%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.studentsreview.com/univ_pics/260_g_1014486456.jpg&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>That's cos you haven seen morse's common room yet. =)</p>

<p>Do you have a picture? I've been looking for pictures of the different colleges online, but haven't found any.</p>

<p>Ooooh the common rooms! I love the one in Saybrook. It's so...grand.</p>

<p>I also love Sterling Memorial Library ("the cathedral of knowledge"), the A Capella traditions (especially Tap Night!), Masters' Teas, college rivalries, the nonstop Harvard bashing, the energy of the student body, the undergraduate coddling by the administration, and the way Branford looks like Hogswarts after dark.</p>

<p>Their old president :P</p>

<p>The food is great too. Plus it's nice that they have a great variety of eating places.</p>

<p>I love everything about Yale!! The residential colleges, the old architecture, the harkness tower with the bell that plays songs, the a capella groups, the traditions, the rivalries. I could go on forever. I really hope I get in!!</p>

<p>cool that's trumbull's common room! i see that everyday, twice a day!</p>

<p>I toured with a student this summer... the cloisters in Saybrook and Branford are gorgeous. the mucial performance halls are SWEET and the architecture is A-mazing. ah! i wanna go. back to english to get an A in the class to send the transript to Yale ... etc.</p>

<p>I loved my tour guides. Did anyone have either a Native American football player from North Dakota or a preppy Connecticut kid who wouldn't stop talking about the food? I did the student forum + tour with them, and they cracked me up.</p>

<p>the music library study room... if anybody's visiting yale, definitely ask for where it is... you don't need an id to get in and it's SOOO gorgeous.</p>

<p>i also LOVE the morse lipstick (j/k, i'm in branford)...</p>

<p>You guys are so lucky! I can't visit Yale so I don't have any "favorite things about Yale" that I could get from a visit, but I'm very interested in their B.A./M.Mus. double-degree program with the Yale School of Music (you can only apply for this in your junior year at Yale College, I think). I'm also interested in the late pianist Vladimir Horowitz's unpublished recordings in the Yale Archives.</p>

<p>I love Branford common room, and the 'secret' nooks in the Stacks... </p>

<p>I do not love morse's common room.</p>

<p>Ah, the glory that is the Saybrook Common Room, Beth.</p>

<p>YSP A Capella rules! <em>starts playing Hallelujah</em></p>

<p>To those of you who aren't Beth, the above will make no sense. I apologize.</p>

<p>I second Nervous... the music study room was so amazing, it almost made me cry. it was gorgeous.</p>

<p>This is probably a silly question, but do you think we'll have access to Horowitz's unpublished recordings (in the Yale Archives) when (if) we're a student at Yale? I especially want to hear his Liszt Hungarian Rhapsody #6, in which his octaves were apparently much faster and more stunning than in his commercial recording.</p>

<p>oh my gosh, i totally had those exact two guys!!! that is so exciting to me :)</p>

<p>when did you go??? i went in august...possibility we were in the same group????</p>

<p>I had the same guys too, I kid you not. The preppy kid had sort of big ears and talked about how great the food at Berekely was. I went in August some time.</p>

<p>I was there August 6. The tour was late for some reason, so the two guys played "Yale trivia" with these postcard book things as prizes... Anyone else?</p>
