Why Yale: Yale has been a part of my life since I was a 6-year-old swimmer, diving into the pool for the first time. Since then, the college has become a home of sorts, a place where I looked forward to visiting every time I got the chance. Once my knowledge of the campus expanded past the athletic complexes, I fell in love. The brilliant professors, the active student lifestyle, the rich history, even the school colors all made me realize that there really is no college more perfect for me than Yale.
