Why Yale?  “I chose Yale because it just felt right. Everything about it. From the moment I stepped onto that campus, I could immediately see myself thriving here and having the best four years of my life. Between the brilliant, driven, passionate, engaging, collaborative and downright amazing students and the endless opportunities I learned that Yale had to offer, especially to underclassmen, I just couldn’t imagine myself going anywhere else. At the same time, I knew that I would be able to have an awesome athletic experience, with a wonderful team and wonderful coaches, next to an equally as incredible academic one.”
