Look, a lot of people I don't think it's that way here. Yeah. What? He's favorite part of your well, my fear of jail is I really like the residential colleges. They're amazing. It's like everybody has their own little community. I really feels like home like first you live on most first years live on like old campus their first year, which is like really big people like, I didn't love that. We, like, know that I'm a soft where I moved my presents in college, looking at your own dining hall like recognized dining staff like all your friends live nearby and you walk in and see people study and way. Vanessa style's best presidents. Yeah, my least favorite part of Yale might be. I don't know everyone to so over successful like Hoover. And like it could be overwhelming time. It's like like any other collars or any other like really beat place. Sometimes you could feel like self doubt like this is too much times like that. I feel like it's best to get off campus for a little like what I'm feeling like that make a lot of press. My parents were really great. It also just, like, really been in every it's going to get up here. So much you are. Okay, so I'm here with my fish from. Could you please introduce yourself on Explain why you choose here. I have names. Have you chose hell? Because of the college system, which is really nice to you. Creates a microcosm of the community, creates familiarity. It's where you live. It's a little with you. Have your own gym. You have your own theory of your own, Dean. It's a small community of four hundred students that kind of makes you feel a lot smaller. Sila College. You? I mean Jonathan Edwards, The best college best on the fourteenth. Could you describe the student body at you? Was to buy a Yale is truly a reflection like United States, Really? And it's like it's increasingly becoming more diverse. We have representatives from every state. We have people from over fifty countries. Over twenty percent of our students are first general income students. So it's truely reflecting the diversity of people in general, Which is really awesome. Okay, could you describe what are?

I'm also musical theater of you as well as I have. I have a job at the Latin American Cultural Center, so there's probably things that you must. What's the academic climate like that he'll like? How much time do you send your studies? And how do you balance that with all your extracurriculars? Office of the academic year is a blessing and a dream come true. It's a place where you're pushed by others, but you're also nurtured by others, and it's not competitive at all. But I also know that, like the incident does like to take, of course, it isn't relax, like jam packed. It's also the most I can. But even with that, I had way. I'm way more time than I school. I probably only do Homer. Maybe like two hours a day, maybe three at the most. That's great. Um, could you tell what your favorite and least favorite part of yell is? Why? My favorite part is the people. The people are just so nice. I love the college system because of lasses and meet people and connect with people honorably individual level Well, I don't like it's just the way I remember saying, Listen, I mean, listen, I got used to the winter, but it definitely was a shock for me coming from sunny Southern California, that's it, Really? For those of you who do not know, I use them there's pronounce they are gender non primary. So I just want I just want youto let all the people who are watching this video no, like what's the What's the climate like for queer people, especially people call it. Yeah, well, you know, Yale has a reputation for being with us, that gay ivy. And I can tell you that truly lives up to that name. I would say over a third of our student body, identify sis, queer in some capacity with general sexuality. And truly, this isn't really a place right. Impossible. Become myself over. Many of us, like our homes, might not be the most safe spaces. But just know that at Yale, that should never begin to back. This is a place for you. Grow so thank you so much away. Okay, so that was Davie's auditorium. I'm now going to show you Science Hill. Find Hill, also known as the Hill. It's where all of this science, math and other laboratories are held at Yale. Straight down like college slash through So that is Morse College on that side styles calling and the soup colleges work Bill. In the past forty years. There I was, getting all the questions.

School and temperature control. This was the public. Those books were so very, very right. Just to be here for you like it? Mine. You're smart. Yeah. Surface. I hear it's pretty cool. So at Yale there are tons of resource is for marginalized communities such as communities of color, low income students. First chance students on behind me is one of those. Resource is so this is the Afro American Cultural Center. It's one of our ethnic and cultural centers on campus. We have four. Then it's the Afro American Culture Center, also known as the House, like a scythe. Latter. Next cultural center, the N A A C C. The Native American Cultural Center and the A C, the Asian American Cultural Center. Calm. So this cultural center was founded in nineteen sixty nine, I believe, um, and a lot of student groups find their homes here, including my archipelago, because we're seeing music of the African American tradition in the African diaspora. Theall Gospel Choir has rehearsals in here are being view. Our black men's union has meetings and as well as our Yale Yale Black Women's Coalition, the Y. W. C. Um, and then also be, say, the black students at Yale has meeting every week here on DH. This house we have a dean and an assistant dean and those people serve as resource is for not just the black community, but for also for tons of students on campus. So, um, I don't have time to take you all around all of the cultural centers on campus, but I'm gonna give you a quick tour of the house, So let's go. This is the banquet hall.

For example, I'm in this building right now for theater studies to ten intruder performance concepts. It's basically like an acting class. It's a lot of fun. There are other students in the class, so it's very intimate, very small. We have a direct link to our professor. It's a great class, so yeah, this is to twenty Great. So we are now at the center of Deal's off campus. So beginning point, actually, where I served monster from here, you're used to where you will live. So this is Maine. Where Lim's. That's something that we have to write college. Benjamin Franklin. Holy Mary. So there you have watched Hall. Here. Find a bill calls good. This is your style's college. It was open in nineteen sixty two. Let it be known for having the best diving for it has been incredible pizza of them on. Many people come here just for the pizza, and that is where the dining hall, usually if it's right there. If we walk a little bit more, you could see Payne Whitney, chairman of the painting. Jim, is yelled largest with him. Bradley was originally meant to be commissioned as a church. What? You have to use it as a gym, Not sure what history there is, but it is one of the largest college nations we are where in the world. So the last crossing? Well, fine. So sponsor, I mean. Sure. Take it. Political polling in the service. What How are less Cheston and a poem Friends Field Goal. All right? Stands were there about this Is this house. So we also going discussing baby there's issues related to I'm here with my friend Simon. Say, high sign. When did you graduate? Simon? I graduated this past may. Oh, my goodness. Spoiled Brad right here. And then I'm also here with my friend and sweetmeat Liam. Uh, Hadley. And when did you graduate? Hopefully, in three years, though. At this point, Who knows? So let's ask them a few questions. So I'm Simon. I was a senior this past spring, so I just graduated. I was an English major, but they did a lot of feeder stuff as well. Um, and what else am I saying? Wait. Oh, I'm from Pittsburgh. Yeah. Let's go. I'm from New York City. I'm I'm undeclared twenty what I want to do. But that's one of the great things about here that you can pretty much not have any idea what you want to do for the first two years of your time here. And it's still pretty chill. Wait, like four majors right now and not having anyone staring it down because all the classes were so amazing. Yeah, I'm so signing. And Simon, could you talk about what you did in your free time here, Hill? Liam, talk about what you're doing. You're so, uh, what I did in my free time, so, like, extracurriculars air. Like what I genuinely did in my free time. OK, Cool. So, like extracurriculars. I did like a lot of theater, which ended up actually being like, professional experience for me, but actually came into hell as a pre med student. So yeah, I just primo stuff for actually, three years, um or two and a half. And then I sort of made that transition on DH er what else do I do with my spare time? I was in an archipelago group called The Dukes of Gale. Do you go to Yale? Rush The Duke's letter? Um, and I took a year off, sort of in the middle of my career, to be in this group called the Within Poofs like playing with. Yeah. So they're this very, very old, aka Telegroup, where basically, if you get in, you take the year off school to tour around the country, in the world with them. So I think over the course of the year we hit up like thirty states and twenty four countries. Um uh, really cool. Awesome experience. Those air, like the big things. I did a non actor way love with clowns. And Leo. I was also in into the woods. I played the cow. When I'm not playing bovine creatures, I also enjoy acting as humans. What else do I do? I do deal Democrats. I, um, kind of put a registration project is midterms are coming up, So go vote, vote and s. Oh, yes, we do a lot of shows here right now trying to get five by doing three shows at a time. So that should be fun, eh? So wish me luck and good luck to you. And last thing. What would be one advice that you would give to a perspective yearly or just a perspective? Polish, too. First. Huge. I would advise you, Teo. Honestly, Teo, to broaden out your base, explore new things. My first year here, I thought I knew that I wanted to, Peter. And so that was really all I pursued. And then as the year went on, there were so many different things going on and it it can feel a little overwhelming, but in the best possible way. And so I really wish that my my first year I had I had focused more on on not just sticking to my comfort zone, but really brought me down my base and and meeting new people who maybe we weren't interested in the same things that I was just getting to know more about those things and those people, even if I didn't end up pursuing their field just to learn about how intelligent and capable and really inspiring other students and faculty. Yeah, I think that's totally legit. Uh, like branching out during your first year is super important and lovely. And I think that actually even apply to, like, prior to your first year at wherever you end up. Like, I think college is a time where everybody sort of grows into the person that they're going to be for the next forty years on Duh, You want to pick a place that likes speaks to you as a person, so that you can, like, don't go into a college being like, Okay, well, this is exactly how it's going. Tomomi goingto go into a college being like. Okay, well, this is a place that I can see being a good place for me to like experience and grow intellectually and that sort of thing. Thank you. Thank you. Know how. But so this is we're now in Benjamin Franklin called Right. So this is Payne Whitney Gymnasium. It is the largest kill, and we're going to take you inside. It has more before that, I think about ten floor fire. Cool. Blocked crew team back there. So now we're going to take a tour of old campus. Old campus is where most of the first year's live. There are a lot of different halls. Residence halls on old campus, for example, the one behind Mia's Durfee. The one right here is Lingam right hall, and each resident hall corresponds to a certain residential college. So last year I was in trouble, so I lived in being home. But so, yeah, let's let's see a little bit of campus. A lot of cool events happened on old campus. For example, our annual spring fling, where we invite musical artist to come perform concerts for us happened right here. Martine Marvin Chun just held a bulldog bash at the beginning of the year, Um, where he invited a salsa band and a deejay to come and play at the beginning of the school year so that we could all reunite and talk about our summers and dance and have a lot of fun. There was a beer garden. There is a kettle corn station. Some pizza was a lot of lot of fun. Okay. Great. So this is cross usually bustling during the day many soon. Fox. My very I'm just a college down there. College. I mean, there were walking towards Sterling Memorial Library right now, that is a library. And that's where we sort of started out tour. So you can probably hear the bells tolling right now. Every day at twelve and six p. M. There's a concert of the bells. And so these bells are situated and Harkness Tower that's in the Brandford courtyard on DH there. Very beautiful, but they may wake you up from a nap if you're in one of the neighbouring colleges or if you live on campus. But yeah, let's listen to Okay. Now I'm gonna take you guys to Hill House, which Mark Twain described as the most beautiful, picturesque streets in America. It's where President Sallade lives. May also have a lot of science or math buildings there, so let's go. Guys. I'm here with my friend Elena. She is an MP in E major Elena. Could you describe what that is for?
