Why Yale? “Once I stepped onto Yale’s campus I knew it was going to be a perfect fit for me. I was able to attend a class and get a glimpse of all of the new things I would be exposed to. The coaches were supportive and encouraging and the team was friendly and welcoming. Attending Yale means that I will have endless opportunities to grow.”
