Yale University is a large research institution chartered in 1701, making it the third-oldest institution of higher education in the US. On top of the numerous academic undergrad degrees at Yale College, students also have access to Multidisciplinary Studies, which examine pressing social challenges, Special Programs, such as Studies in Grand Strategy, and International Experiences, which 64% of the Yale student body utilizes. Before their freshman year, all students are randomly divided up into twelve residential colleges on the New Haven, CT, campus, where they will live and socialize for the next four years. The campus is also home to the Marsh Botanical Garden, Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, an observation and planetarium, farm, art gallery, museum of natural history, and the Yale Center for British Art.
Yale's plethora of books, resources, and cafe's is what attracts students and staff the world wide to study and teach in this revered university. Nestled in the heart of New Haven, Connecticut, Yale brings with its prestige an old time charm and a medieval feel, as most of the buildings are reminiscent of castle fortresses. There is certainly something for everyone to be found within these hallowed halls and wrought iron gates.
