Student Profiles

Valeria C.

"Despite occasional late nights working on painting assignments, each day at YSS fills me with gratitude and happiness"
 

Isabela G. T.

""My advice for the future students that come here is to savor it! Be a sponge. Enjoy everything, from doing the events that YSS hosts during the weekends, to going to your professor’s office hours to ask that question that’s been bugging you for hours.""
 

Jordan R.

"“Being a Yale student, I am in New Haven the whole year, so some people are surprised I want to spend even more time there. But New Haven in the summer is absolutely beautiful. Not only is it warm and green, but it is just full of joy. The New Haven community comes alive with concerts on the Green, Salsa parties on Ninth Square, July 4th firework shows on East Rock, and tons of beach excursions.”"
 

Sebastian O.

"“Meeting new people and making memories with these new friends was very fun, especially with all the new places in New Haven that I got to explore with them!”"
 

Jaza T.

"Jaza also encourages future students to take advantage of YSS activities like intramural sports, trips to Broadway shows, or baseball games at Yankee Stadium"
 

Junjie L.

"I wholeheartedly endorse attending Yale Summer Session. It offers a unique opportunity to engage with some of the best professors globally, study in the breathtaking Yale campus environment, and experience the academic excellence of one of the world's most prestigious universities."

Hefina G.

"Hefina’s daily life reflects Yale’s broader synthesis of academic rigor with a robust social experience. She advises future students “to learn to manage their time well because I had many readings to do, and yet a lot of fun summer activities I wanted to join, so juggling between the two was difficult sometimes.” Hefina recommends YSS to other students, due to the unique learning experience not as available in other countries while making fun memories with friends."
 

Daniela G.

"My favorite class was acting because I've only been working on musical theater, so for me, separating the performance on a song and the acting was new. I came to the Conservatory to broaden my skillset and build upon what I knew in order to grow. This class showed me that I really love acting, and that learning and working is the only way to improve."
 

Jasmine B.

"Jasmine found her class, “Writing about Family,” to be one of the most meaningful courses in her educational journey. “We were allowed to be vulnerable with people who were, initially, complete strangers; however, through the course of the classes, I found that despite coming from opposite corners of the world, we still had many similarities.”"
