My experience at Yale was absolutely amazing. The diversity of the student body, the quality of the education, the variety of extracurriculars can't be matched. I was active in the singing community, I did children's theater, I volunteered, I was politically active, and I was always impressed by the amount of support, money and resources made available to undergrads to pursue these activities. However, as Yale begins to focus more on being a research institution, we could all sense a shift away from support of the College. So I couldn't tell you what life is like now. At the time, though, I couldn't think of a better place to be an undergrad.

I majored in philosophy because I was going to go into education. I went into that knowing it was strictly a liberal arts major, and if I had it to do all over again, I would still major in philosophy. Midway through my education, however, I switched to film, but it was too late to get into the few film classes that were offered. The program was very small, almost non-existent (at least it was when I was there), the classes were packed and priority for enrollment was given to freshmen/sophomores. So if I could have changed one thing it would have been to take a film class or two early on.
