Description
Yale University is an American private Ivy League research university located in New Haven, Connecticut。 Founded in 1701 in the Colony of Connecticut, the university is the third-oldest institution of higher education in the United States。 Incorporated as the "Collegiate School," the institution traces its roots to 17th-century clergymen who sought to establish a college to train clergy and political leaders for the colony。 In 1718, the College was renamed "Yale College" to honor a gift from Elihu Yale, a governor of the British East India Company。 In 1861, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences became the first U.S。 school to award the PhD。 Yale became a founding member of the Association of American Universities in 1900。 Yale College was transformed, beginning in the 1930s, through the establishment of residential colleges: 12 now exist and two more are planned。 Yale employs over 1,100 faculty to teach and advise about 5,300 undergraduate and 6,100 graduate and professional students。 Almost all tenured professors teach undergraduate courses, more than 2,000 of which are offered annually。 The University's assets include a US 19.4 billion endowment, the second-largest of any academic institution。 Yale libraries hold 12.5 million volumes in more than two dozen libraries。 49 Nobel Laureates have been affiliated with the University as students, faculty, and staff。 Yale has produced many notable alumni, including five U.S。 Presidents, 19 U.S。 Supreme Court Justices, and several foreign heads of state。 Yale Law School is particularly well-regarded and the most selective law school in the United States。 Yalies compete intercollegiately as the Yale Bulldogs in the NCAA Division I Ivy League。 Yale and Harvard University share a strong athletic rivalry, which traditionally culminates in The Game and the Harvard-Yale Regatta。 The official color of the university and its athletic teams is Yale Blue.

地理位置
Yale University is located in New Haven, CT, the second-largest city in the state with a population of more than 120,000. Both the city and the university have long and rich histories dating back three centuries. While the university does not define the city, it is its biggest employer. Though crime has decreased in recent years and many areas are being revitalized, students still tend to feel safest sticking close to campus. Still, New Haven has museums, theaters, shopping, dining, and other entertainment options to offer, including the New Haven Green. On the North Shore of the Long Island Sound, New Haven is about two hours from New York City and two and a half hours from Boston. It's accessible from major highways, and there is a train station served by Amtrak and Metro North lines.

Yale’s central campus sits on 310 acres in New Haven, Connecticut. The campus has 260 buildings in a variety of architectural styles, reflecting the school’s long history. The Harkness Tower, in Old Campus, stands at 201 feet and is emblematic of the collegiate Gothic style that characterizes the campus. With more than 600 acres of athletic fields, plus centrally-located lawns and courtyards, the Yale campus is something of an oasis in the midst of a decidedly urban area. Undergraduate living is divided among twelve separate residential colleges. The colleges are each city-block sized areas containing dorms and facilities like dining halls, libraries, seminar rooms, and lounges, with courtyards in the middle. Construction crews are recently ubiquitous at Yale. The school is renovating and expanding its facilities, and it's adding two more residential colleges north of Grove Street, by Science Hill. The colleges are expected to open in 2013 and will make this area of campus, currently rather isolated, more central to student life.

宿舍条件
All Yale students are assigned to residential colleges where they live, socialize, and engage in extracurricular pursuits. Each college has a dean, master, and affiliated faculty. The college system, which is modeled after the same at Oxford and Cambridge, was instituted in the 1930s at Yale. They are intended to approximate life at a small college, in turn making the large university setting more manageable and rewarding for students. While freshmen are assigned to a residential college, most students do not begin living in their colleges until sophomore year; first-year students usually live in dorms in the Old Campus. These freshman dorms are made up of four- to six-person suites with a common room, on single-sex floors. The twelve residential colleges at Yale all have their own personalities and amenities that distinguish them from the others. They are: Berkeley, Branford, Calhoun, Davenport, Ezra Stiles, Jonathan Edwards, Morse, Pierson, Saybrook, Silliman, Timothy Dwight, and Trumbull. In 2013, two new residential colleges will open to students. Silliman and Timothy Dwight Colleges house freshmen.

体育培养
Yale competes in the Ivy League Conference, the Eastern College Athletic Conference, and Division I of the NCAA. The school has an auspicious history in college sports—-football was practically created by a Yale man, Walter Camp, around the turn of the century. The Harvard-Yale football game continues to be one of the biggest events of the year. But where Yale continues to excel is on the waterfront—-the Yale Sailing Team has produced a number of Olympic sailors, and Yale rowing consistently excels on an international level. Many students also participate in intramural games between the residential colleges.
