Student Review:


Yale is plagued by the fact that it is in New Haven, Connecticut. Much like Brown being in Providence, this is not an ideal landing spot for any youthful Ivy Leaguer looking to experience the big city, or a beautiful scenic view beyond campus. However the Gothic architecture has allowed for many to tout this school for having some of the most beautiful buildings of any campus nationwide.

Yale’s campus is beautiful on the inside, but unfortunately the location downgrades Yale underneath its many of its competitors.
