Yale Summer Session Student Handbook


Quote: It has been amazing to meet people from all over the world with vastly different backgrounds and experiences. I have formed friendships with people from Singapore, South Korea, Mexico, Kenya and Hawaii. Outside of all that I have learnt through my classes, I have learned a huge amount from my interactions with these people. This has been the most valuable part of my summer experience at Yale.
