Founded in 1701, Yale University is a leading private, independent university in New Haven, Connecticut. As the third oldest institution of higher education in the United States, Yale is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious universities in the world and it has produced a number of U.S. presidents.
Yale University consists of three major academic components1: Yale College (the undergraduate2 program), the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and the professional schools. In addition, Yale includes a wide collection of centers and programs, libraries, museums, and administrative support offices. About 11,250 students attend Yale.
Yale is well known for the strength of its college, where its 5,200 students learn to lead and serve not only through a strong academic curriculum but also by participation in a lot of extra-curricular activities, from athletics to community service. Yale students are famous for forming and shaping their own clubs and organizations. More than 240 student organizations now exist, some over a century old. Led by a distinguished faculty3, it carries on its education and research on the graduate level in graduate and professional schools: the graduate school of arts and sciences, engineering & applied science, forestry & environmental studies, law, management, medicine, nursing, public health, and four schools of the arts: architecture, art, drama, and music. The University is home to one of the world’s great libraries and three outstanding public museums and galleries — Peabody Museum of Natural History, the University Art Gallery, and the Center for British Art —they help to enrich the cultural climate of the University and the city.
International students make up nearly 9 percent of the undergraduate student body, and 16 percent of all students at the University. Yale’s distinguished faculty includes many who have been trained or educated abroad and many whose fields of research have a global emphasis; and international studies and exchanges play an increasingly important role in the Yale College curriculum.
Today, Yale has matured into one of the world’s great universities. Its students come from all fifty American states and from 108 countries. The 3,200-member faculty is a richly diverse group of men and women who are leaders in their respective fields. The central campus now covers 310 acres (125 hectares). Yale’s 260 buildings include contributions from distinguished architects of every period in its history. Styles range from New England Colonial to High Victorian Gothic (哥特式), from Moorish (摩尔人式的) Revival to contemporary. Yale’s buildings, towers, lawns, courtyards, walkways, and gates make up what one architecture critic has called “the most beautiful urban campus in America”. The University also maintains over 600 acres (243 hectares) of athletic fields and natural preserves.
