Questions with Israel:

Why Yale?: "From the moment I stepped on campus, I knew this was the place for me. Little did I know how quickly Yale would become a second home. That's why when asked the simple "Why Yale?" question, I realized there is not a singular answer, but rather the mixture of people, beautiful campus, and various opportunities that continue to inspire and motivate me each and everyday. That's why I chose Yale."
