  • ...and that's why this is such an important decision

  • because it is one that will follow you now,

  • and into the future.

  • And that concludes another traditional Yale information session.

  • There will be a guided tour beginning in fifteen minutes.

  • In the meantime, I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have.

  • Yes, um...

  • When was Yale founded?

  • Great question.

  • Yale was founded in 1701.

  • Oh, um yes, you?

  • Is it true that all Yale professors teach?

  • Another great question.

  • It is true that every tenured Professor in Yale college teaches undergraduates,

  • so even a freshman might be taking a class from a Nobel Prize winner.

  • Any more questions?

  • Yeah, I have a question.

  • Why did you choose Yale?

  • When I was a senior in high school,

  • colleges called out my name.

  • Every day I'd debate

  • where to matriculate

  • but every place seemed the same.

  • Yet after I went through the options,

  • only one choice remained.

  • I wanted to hail from a college called Yale.

  • Now let me explain...

  • It's a place where you'll learn quintessential knowledge,

  • and you can live in a Residential College,

  • and you can put your hearts into all the liberal arts.

  • And that's why I chose Yale.

  • Of course, you'll get a first-rate education,

  • but also thrive on classmates' conversation.

  • Here is where we thread

  • Shakespeare Studies and Pre-Med.

  • and that's why I chose Yale.

  • One of the reasons I chose Yale was for its housing system.

  • Before students arrive as freshmen,

  • they're randomly assigned to one of twelve smaller communities

  • called Residential Colleges.

  • These colleges have nothing to do with academic subjects or extracurricular activities.

  • But rest assured,

  • they're quite a bit more than just living spaces.

  • Excuse me?

  • Yeah admissions officer?

  • Tell us a bit more about

  • Residential Colleges.

  • Sure thing.

  • Students here at Yale come from everywhere around -

  • with every type of interest that can possibly be found.

  • Do our passions divide us?

  • No, our colleges provide us

  • with family and common ground.

  • For all four years we'll all reside together in colleges,

  • united by pride.

  • With such great facilities to hone your abilities,

  • you'll never want to go outside.

  • Every college has a dining hall with a salad bar and grill

  • and organic options for every meal.

  • I'm going to eat my fill.

  • Each one has a common room, which we could not live without -

  • to study or to meet in groups

  • or simply to hang out.

  • And when the dining halls are closed there's butteries for snacks.

  • And if you need a study break,

  • there's game rooms to relax.

  • I can get to my college library

  • without stepping foot outside.

  • And just right down the hallway,

  • my clothes are washed and dried.

  • I work out in my college gym, a mere two floors below.

  • Then I meet my friends for rehearsal in the dance studio.

  • There are tons of music practice rooms where I can hone my skills. We even have a movie theater This one always gives me chills!

  • We don't have normal dorms at Yale.

  • Instead, we live in suites.

  • So you may have a roommate.

  • We have matching sheets!

  • Outside there's a common room, so come and stay awhile. There's space for couches and TV's

  • or a lava lamp if that's your style. At the head of every college is a Master and a Dean.

  • They live with us and eat with us

  • and everything between.

  • Am I taking the right class?

  • Will these credits suffice?

  • I've got the flu. Need a pass.

  • Can I get some adviceWhat's a good summer program?

  • This fellowship is nice.

  • Thank goodness that we have our Dean.

  • A Master brings us all together

  • as our senior prof.

  • hosting study breaks and lectures for when we need time off.

  • Who'd like to see a Broadway show?

  • I'll gladly subsidize.

  • Let's host another concert -

  • I'll proudly harmonize.

  • There's free food in the evening for all of you to share, and a Master's Tea tomorrow too. I hope to see you there.

  • Master's Tea's are a chance to see all your favorite celebrities.

  • Hear their stories and ask advice.

  • ...which is why I had to interview him twice.

  • Residential Colleges, come give a cheer.

  • A place to call our home for all four years.

  • A sense of unity, immense community

  • Our friendships will prevail. That's why I chose Yale.

  • But when you do step outside your Residential College,

  • who knows what you might run into.

  • But mostly, I chose Yale

  • for its superb academic opportunities.

  • I came to Yale because I wanted to learn

  • and I wanted to learn from the best.

  • I was tired of memorizing figures and facts just to pass another test.

  • Last year I spent the summer abroad, I helped to monitor a foreign election. And now I volunteer at a law school clinic on human rights protection.

  • I want to be an architect someday -I want to help save a city that's dying.

  • That's why I needed a school that would push me to see that my coursework has a grounding in reality. Now I grasp the bigger picture - my perspective has a different scale.That's why I chose Yale.

  • I came to Yale from across the world, because I wanted a global education. Now I'm bringing clean water to the countries that need it through the H20 Africa Foundation.

  • I'm taking a class called Philosophy of Art, to see where truth and beauty connect. What is the concept of art, and why should we care?

  • Where do Plato and Picasso intersect?

  • I study real world problems that need to be solved,

  • because the climate is changing fast.

  • I'm working on a project I designed myself

  • for submission to a conference on the Polar Ice Shelf.

  • With the faculty's help, I know that I won't fail.

  • That's why I chose Yale.

  • How do I know which class to take?

  • There's over 2000 here.

  • More than 50 foreign languages.

  • It's only our freshman year.

  • Well, as your freshman counselor,

  • I was chosen by the Dean.

  • I'm a senior in this college,

  • and I know just what you mean.

  • The first two weeks of classes,

  • take any course you choose.

  • Then you pick your favorites -

  • there's no way you can lose.

  • And when it's time to study for that intensive course,

  • and you're looking for the perfect resource,

  • Yale's libraries have got what you need -

  • dozens of collections sure to help you succeed.

  • Within this mountain of books, between these walls

  • you'll find music and film,

  • ancient maps and all.

  • You'll want for nothing

  • someone clearly thought of every detail.

  • Do you mind?

  • This is a library.

  • ...sorry.

  • That's why I chose Yale.

  • Everyone here is on a similar mission

  • where great classes and professors are a campus tradition.

  • The students are able and the classes are small,

  • so go audition all your courses in the lecture hall.

  • Come on people, time to hit the ignition

  • in science or in chemistry or as a musician.

  • Meet your professors over coffee or dinner -

  • with their help you're sure to be an academic winner

  • We're housed in suites in our residential colleges.

  • There's no debating it, everyone acknowledges -

  • we've got it made with a Master and a Dean,

  • and a freshman counselor to show us the scene.

  • Residential Colleges give spirit and unity to every single person in the Yale community

  • We eat there and we study and we joke and relax

  • and go to masters teas and study breaks for nighttime snacks.

  • That's why we chose Yale!

  • All right then...

  • "Cats" was better.�

...and that's why this is such an important decision
