The library was filled with stained glass and beautiful art. The ceilings are decorated, every inch of the building is beautiful and this is why it reminded me of Europe. Stop in and look carefully at each of the details in the buildings.

While it's true that Bridgeport is New Haven without Yale, it's a coin flip the trade off is worth it. While the classic buildings and the charity events and art festival are appreciated, the people inhabiting those buildings are a drain. The entitled attitude is...More

I'm a big fan of architecture, and it was nice, but just not as spectacular as we thought it would be. It did get dark early in November, so that could have played a factor in it. Most things were locked down (gates, etc.) and...More

Had a nice tour of the campus. The Yale Art Gallery was the best college gallery we've visited. A lot of history.

Check out the Payne Whitney Athletic Facility. An older classic building which was way ahead of its tim. Also the Yale Golf Course is a must see/play if you golf. Art musuem and Woolsey Hall for theatre/musical events.

This campus is right out of a movie...Harry Potter or otherwise. Rich collegiate gothic architecture abounds, with multiple quadrangles and walkways, etc. Roam around, the place is huge. And there are some Revolutionary era buildings at the core. Then take a stroll to the art...More
