Coach Casey D’Annolfo returns to Tufts after nine year coaching stint at Taft High School
Growing up in West Hartford, Conn., newly-hired Tufts men’s lacrosse head coach Casey D’Annolfo (LA ’06) was surrounded by sports all year-round. Playing football, basketball and baseball throughout his childhood, he quickly developed a competitive and athletic drive.
However, it was not until later in his upbringing that D’Annolfo’s father introduced him to lacrosse. His father coached the sport at the time and D’Annolfo quickly realized his passion for the sport.
“My dad was a typical ’70s gym teacher who coached everything that they asked him to coach,” D’Annolfo said. “So he picked up lacrosse for a few years, even though he had never played it … and when I was in sixth grade he told me to try it, I tried it, liked it and kept playing it.”
D’Annolfo went on to play football, basketball and lacrosse at Tufts, playing quarterback for the football team and as a four-year contributor for the lacrosse team. He is credited as the only athlete in Tufts history to have thrown a touchdown in football, scored a goal in lacrosse and made a field goal in basketball during his collegiate career. On top of the success he enjoyed in each sport, he credits playing three sports for his impressive ability to avoid injury during his career as a Jumbo.
“[Playing three sports] was key in terms of injury prevention,” D’Annolfo said. “You would think that playing a lot of sports, you would be more likely to get hurt, but I always found that I was always healthier if I was playing a lot of sports. I did nine seasons here [and] I missed two practices.”
D’Annolfo was hired in August after longtime head coach Mike Daly was hired by Brown in July to coach its surging, top-tier Div. I program. Daly coached Tufts from 1999-2016 and guided the program to three NCAA titles (2010, 2014, 2015) and seven straight NESCAC titles (2010-2016) during his tenure.
Though this is his first collegiate-level coaching job, D’Annolfo still boasts an impressive coaching resume. After graduating from Tufts in 2006, he went on to coach at the Taft School in Connecticut. He started as an assistant for a year and then quickly took over the head coaching role, revitalizing the school’s lacrosse program and building it up to be one of the premier high school programs in the country. When he started in 2007, the team was ranked No. 802 nationally in the USA Today high school polls and sat at the bottom of the highly competitive Founders League conference. D’Annolfo coached the team to a top 20 ranking by 2014, and the team finished this spring with a Founders League title and a No. 18 ranking in the USA Today rankings.
“When I got [to Taft], the lacrosse job opened up and they asked me if I wanted to do it. I was 23 and liked being in charge, so I took the job,” D’Annolfo said. “We were terrible, but that was really good for me because I got to try a lot of things out, nobody really had any expectations and we just figured out what worked and just got better and better.”
Over his nine seasons at Taft, D’Annolfo saw 70 of his players go on to play in college, including eight high school All-American players.
D’Annolfo admitted that when he began coaching, he never envisioned his current career path.
“My initial plan was not to coach lacrosse,” D’Annolfo said. “My initial plan was to go and work at Taft for two years and then go coach college football at the Div. I level.”
Starting out as a head coach so fresh off of his own playing career, D’Annolfo said he had to learn a lot on the fly. He said he found plenty of mentors, ranging from his father to his coaches growing up to his coaches in college — namely, Daly, under whom D’Annolfo played during his time at Tufts. D’Annolfo cites Daly as a major influence for him not just in coaching style, but also on his development as a young college athlete.
“His major influences have been life lessons and not lacrosse. How to build a program, how to build culture, those were the most impactful things coach Daly taught me,” D’Annolfo said.
D’Annolfo now faces a different challenge as he comes into a Tufts program with an established legacy of success. D’Annolfo does not want to shy away from the expectations placed on the team due to its success under Daly’s leadership.
“I think that a lot of people would see that as a lot of pressure, but for me this would be my tenth season as a head coach, I know what works and what doesn’t,” D’Annolfo said. “I coached 14-19 years olds and what motivates those guys is very similar to what motivates 18-22 year olds. I’m not nervous to get started, I’m just very excited.”

Morris leads Brunswick lacrosse past Taft
GREENWICH — Following a first half of near misses, the Brunswick School lacrosse team found its shooting touch during the second half of it’s showdown against Taft School Wednesday — especially Sean Morris.
A senior attackman/midfielder, Morris found his mark in a big way for the Bruins in the second half, converting shots from all angles.
And when the final buzzer sounded, Morris had five goals to his credit and the Bruins added an impressive 14-9 win to their ledger.
With the Western New England Division 1 home triumph, Brunswick raised its record to 4-1 overall and a perfect 4-0 in conference play.
Complementing Morris offensively were senior attack Jimmy Heidt, who registered four goals and one assist and sophomore attack Christian Ronda (three goals, two assists).
The Bruins faced a 7-5 halftime deficit after the Rhinos (1-4) received three goals from Kyle Salvatore and two from senior midfielder George Grell.
“We shot better in the second half and we played better defense,” Bruins coach David Bruce said. “They are a far better team than their record shows, they have two losses against two top teams in the country. Their top two guys (Grell, Salvatore) took it to us in the first half. But I’m proud of our guys for digging deep.”
Trailing 7-5, junior Harrison Caponiti brought the Bruins to within 7-6 with a goal off a dodge with 10:14 to go in the third quarter.
At the 5:43 mark of the third quarter, the North Carolina-bound Morris put a laser from 20 yards past Rhinos goalie Jake Simon, making it 7-7.
After Nicholas Nelson scored off a feed from Joe Hardison, Morris scored three straight goals, putting Brunswick ahead for good at 10-8.
His go-ahead goal came off a dodge with 58 seconds left in the third quarter.
“We reloaded at halftime and Sean put us on his shoulders,” Bruce said. “He had a monstrous, monstrous second half.”
The visitors cut Brunswick’s lead to 10-9 on Hardison’s man-up goal with 6:56 left in the final quarter. But the Bruins quickly responded, as Heidt spun away from a defender and snuck a shot past Simon, making it 11-9 at the 4:52 mark of the final quarter.
Morris, Heidt and Ronda tallied the game’s final three goals, as the Bruins pulled away.
“This is a huge win for us,” the Dartmouth-bound Heidt said. “We beat Deerfield, so we didn’t want to lose our streak. We were down two goals at halftime, so we knew we needed to catch up. The chemistry we have on attack and throughout our whole team really makes us a tough team.”
Senior attack Alex Buckanavage recorded one goal and two assists for the Bruins, who received eight saves from junior goalie Patrick Burkinshaw and strong defensive play throughout. Simon made 18 saves for Taft.
“Burkinshaw and Max Metalios, who is really crafty with the ball, led us defensively,” Bruce said.
Up next for Brunswick is a matchup against New Canaan on the road Saturday at 4:30 p.m.
“We have to play a more complete game on Saturday,” Bruce said. “It should be an exciting game.”

A little later, Kennedy’s personal doctor, George Gregory Barkley, arrived, but at that moment it was already obvious that attempts to save Kennedy had been unsuccessful. The first lady at that moment remained in the room for relatives and friends of patients. A little later, she tried to enter the operating room. Nurse Doris Nelson stopped her and tried to lock the door to prevent Jacqueline Kennedy from entering the operating room.But the first lady was adamant. She told the president’s doctor: “They shot at him in front of my eyes. I’m covered in his blood. What could be worse ?! ” The medical staff insisted that she take a sedative, which she refused. “I want to be there when he dies,” she told Berkeley. He ultimately convinced Sister Nelson to let Jackie be with her husband, saying that “this is her right, her prerogative.”
Later, when the coffin arrived, the widow took off her wedding ring and placed it in the president’s hand.She told aide Ken O’Donner, “Now I have nothing.” Before the funeral, her wedding ring was returned to her.

After the death of the president, she refused to take off her blood-stained clothes and regretted that her husband’s blood was washed off her face and hands. She remained in a pink suit spattered with blood. In the same suit, she stood next to Lyndon Johnson, who took the oath of office when he took office as president aboard the plane that was supposed to deliver the body of the late President Kennedy to Washington.She told Lady Bird Johnson, “I want everyone to see what they did to John.”

Jacqueline Kennedy herself took over the planning of the details of her husband’s state funeral, which was based on Abraham Lincoln’s farewell ceremony. The funeral service was held at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle in Washington, DC. The 35th President of the United States was buried at Arlington National Cemetery.The widow led the march along with the brothers and relatives of John F. Kennedy. Near the grave, at the insistence of Mrs. Kennedy, an eternal flame was set up, which she herself lit. Lady Jean Campbell later told The London Evening Standard: “Jacqueline Kennedy gave the American people … one thing they have always lacked: grandeur.”
Following the assassination and media coverage that focused on her before and after the funeral, Kennedy pulled back from public appearances and statements.However, she made a brief appearance in Washington to thank Secret Service agent Clint Hill, who climbed the presidential limousine in Dallas to try to protect her and the president. In September 2011, almost 50 years after the death of John F. Kennedy, an interview was released that was recorded after the assassination of her husband in 1964. Approximately 8.5 hours of recordings contain an interview with Arthur Schlesinger Jr. In it, Jacqueline Kennedy shares her views on Vice President Lyndon B.Johnson, about the leader of the civil rights movement, about Martin Luther King. She recounts how she refused to leave her husband during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, when other officials sent their wives away for their safety.
Life after the assassination of John F. Kennedy
A week after her husband’s assassination, on November 29, Kennedy was interviewed by Theodore H. White of Life magazine in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts. In this interview, she compared Kennedy’s years in the White House to King Arthur’s mythical Camelot, commenting that the president would often hum the Lerner and Loewe’s title track before going to bed.After leaving the White House, Kennedy asked her drivers to plot her travel routes so that she would not see her former home.
Her steadfastness and courage after the murder of her husband and the funeral were admired all over the world. Following the death of John F. Kennedy, Jacqueline and her children remained in their White House rooms for two weeks, preparing to leave. They spent the winter of 1964 at Averell Harriman’s home in the Georgetown borough of Washington, D.C. before buying their own home on the same street.Later in 1964, hoping for privacy for her children, Kennedy decided to buy an apartment on Fifth Avenue in New York and sold her new Georgetown home and country home in Atok, Virginia, where she and her husband intended to retire. She spent a year in mourning, occasionally speaking in public. During this time, her daughter Caroline told one of her teachers that her mother often cried. Kennedy immortalized her husband’s memory by attending memorial events. These included the assignment of the name John F.Kennedy aircraft carrier USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67) in 1967 (decommissioned in 2007) at Newport News, Virginia, and a memorial at Hyannisport. They also created a memorial to President Kennedy at Runnymede in England and a park near New Ross, Ireland. She oversaw plans to create the John F. Kennedy Library, which is the archive for the official newspapers of the Kennedy government. Initial plans to build a library in Cambridge, Massachusetts, near Harvard University, where John F.Kennedy, proved to be difficult to implement for various reasons, so the library was located in Boston. The rebuilt library, designed by Bei Yuming, includes a museum and was opened in Boston in 1979 by President Jimmy Carter. In November 1967, during the Vietnam War, Life magazine recognized Jacqueline Kennedy as “America’s unofficial ambassador-at-large” during her visit to Cambodia when she met with the head of state, Prince Sihanouk. Prior to this, diplomatic relations between the United States and Cambodia were interrupted in May 1965.
Marriage to Aristotle Onassis
Aristotle Onassis is the second husband of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy.
In June 1968, when her brother-in-law Robert Kennedy was killed, she felt real fear for her children, saying, “If they kill Kennedy, then my children are also targets … I want to leave this country.” On October 20, 1968, she married Aristotle Onassis, a wealthy Greek shipping magnate who was able to provide her children and her with the privacy and security they needed.The wedding took place on the island of Skorpios in the Ionian Sea, which belonged to Onassis. After her marriage to Onassis, Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis lost her Secret Service protection and franking privilege, both of which are the rights of the American president’s widow. After the marriage, the media gave her the nickname “Jackie O”, which proved to be popular. She never received privacy, becoming even more interesting for the paparazzi after marriage. Many viewed this marriage as a betrayal of the Kennedy clan.Tragedies did not leave her even then. The only son of Aristotle Onassis, Alexander, died in a plane crash in January 1973. Onassis’s health began to deteriorate and he died in Paris on March 15, 1975. The tabloids covered the event with the headlines “Jacqueline is a widow again!” Kennedy-Onassis’s financial legacy was severely limited under Greek law, which dictated how much a non-Greek surviving spouse could inherit. After two years of legal battle, she ultimately accepted a $ 26 million compensation from Christina Onassis, daughter of Onassis and sole heir, forfeiting all of Onassis’s other inheritance.During their seven-year marriage, the couple lived in five different locations: her 15-room New York apartment on Fifth Avenue, her horse farm in New Jersey, his apartment in Paris, his private island in Greece, Skorpios, and his 325-foot (100 m) yacht “Christina”.

The death of Onassis in 1975 made Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis, almost 46 years old, a widow for the second time.Now that her children are older, she decided to find a job. Since she has always loved literature and writing, in 1975 she accepted an offer of the editorial position of Viking Press. But in 1978, Viking Press president Thomas H. Guinsberg bought Jeffrey Archer’s Shall We Tell the President ?, which described the fictional future of President Edward M. Kennedy and an assassination conspiracy against him. After a falling out with the president of the company over the publication and sale of this book, Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis resigned from the publishing house.She then took a job at Doubleday as a junior editor with an old friend, John Sargen, who lives in New York. From the mid-1970s until her death, her companion was Maurice Templesman, a Belgian-born industrialist and diamond trader.
She also received a lot of media attention. The most notorious is the story of the obsessed photographer Ron Galella. He followed her everywhere and photographed her day in and day out, trying to get candid photos of her. Ultimately, Jacqueline sued him and won the case.This situation attracted negative public attention to the paparazzi. In 1995, John F. Kennedy Jr. allowed Gaell to photograph him at public events.
Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis also advocated for the preservation and protection of America’s cultural heritage. Notable results of her hard work include Lafayette Square in President’s Park, Washington, and Grand Central, New York’s historic railway station. During her time as First Lady, she helped stop the destruction of historic homes in Lafayette Square because she felt that these buildings were an important part of the nation’s capital and played a significant role in her history.Later, in New York, she led a heritage conservation company to rescue and renovate Grand Central Terminal. A plaque in the terminal commemorates her contribution to the preservation of New York City’s landmark and history. In the 1980s, she was a key figure in protests against the planned construction of a skyscraper in Columbus Square that could cast large shadows over Central Park. The project was canceled, but the Time Warner Center skyscraper will take over in 2003. From the windows of her apartment in New York, there was a beautiful view of the glass wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which displays the Temple of Dendur.It was a gift from Egypt to the United States, in gratitude for the generosity of Jacqueline Kennedy, who helped to preserve several temples and objects of Egyptian antiquity, which were threatened by the construction of the Aswan Dam.

Kennedy-Onassis was diagnosed with lymphoma in January 1994. Her illness and diagnosis were announced to the public the following month.The family and doctors were optimistic at first. Jacqueline quit smoking at the insistence of her daughter, being a heavy smoker “three packs a day”. Kennedy-Onassis continued to work with Doubleday, but reduced her work schedule. By April, the lymphoma had metastasized. Jacqueline made her last trip home from New York Presbyterian Hospital [en] on May 18, 1994. A large crowd of well-wishers, fans, tourists and reporters gathered on the street near her apartment. Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis died in her sleep at 10:15 pm on Thursday, May 19, two and a half months before her 65th birthday.In announcing her death, Kennedy Onassis’ son John F. Kennedy Jr. said: “My mother died surrounded by her friends and family, her books, people and the things she loved. She did it in her own way and on her own terms, and we all feel happy about it. ” Farewell to Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis took place on May 23, 1994 at St. Ignatius Loyola Church [en] in Manhattan – the church where she was baptized in 1929. At her funeral, her son John described three hallmarks: a love of words, a bond of home and family, and a spirit of adventure.She was buried next to President Kennedy’s first husband, their son Patrick, and their stillborn daughter Arabella in Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia.
Jacqueline as a symbol of style
Jacqueline Kennedy at a formal dinner on May 22, 1962.
During the presidency of John, Jacqueline Kennedy became a symbol of fashion for women not only in America but around the world. She hired French-American fashion designer and friend of the Kennedy family, Oleg Cassini, in the fall of 1960 to create an original wardrobe for her, corresponding to the title of first lady.From 1961 until the end of 1963, Cassini created many collections of the most iconic outfits for her, including the one for the inauguration of the president, as well as outfits for trips to Europe, India and Pakistan. Her suits with knee-length skirts, three-quarter sleeves, coat and jacket collars, sleeveless dresses, gloves above the elbow, low-heeled shoes and pill hats were successful all over the world. The people called her style “Jackie’s style”. Although Cassini was her main designer, she also wore clothes from renowned French fashion designers such as Chanel, Givenchy and Dior.Jacqueline Kennedy’s style has been copied more often than any other first lady by clothing manufacturers and designers, as well as a large part of ordinary young women.
In the years after the White House, her style changed significantly. Her clothes have become more modest, more ordinary. Pantsuits with wide legs, large jackets with a lapel, Hermès shawls that covered either the head or neck, and large sunglasses represented her new image. She began to wear more bright colors more often, and also began to wear jeans in public.Wearing loose raincoats without a belt, white jeans on the hips with a black turtleneck, she thereby introduced a new trend in fashion.
Throughout her life, Kennedy has shown herself a large collection of exquisite and priceless jewelry. It is known that many jewelry stores rented her jewelry, making excellent advertising for themselves. The pearl necklace, designed by American jeweler Kenneth Jay Lane, has become her hallmark as First Lady. The popular “Berry brooch”, made in the form of two fruit brooches – strawberries from rubies, and the base and leaves of diamonds, designed by French jeweler Jean Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co, was personally selected and presented to her by her husband a few days before his inauguration in January 1961 of the year.Schlumberger’s gold and enamel bracelets were worn so often by Jacqueline Kennedy in the early to mid-1960s that the press called them Jackie’s bracelets. The white enamel bracelet and small gold banana earrings were some of her favorites. Kennedy wore jewelry designed by Van Cleef & Arpels during the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Her favorite was the wedding ring given to her by President Kennedy, also from Van Cleef & Arpels.

90,000 faculties and specialties, tuition fees, interesting facts. Admission to Yale University
is one of the most famous universities in the United States, located in New Haven, Connecticut.
Yale is included in the Ivy League
Ivy League is a community of eight of the most prestigious private American universities.
Yale University is located in New Haven, one of the oldest cities in New England, in Connecticut.
New Haven is a port city with a population of 125 thousand people, located 120 kilometers northeast of New York and 200 kilometers southwest of Boston.
University – Lux et Veritas (Latin) “Light and Truth”
Yale was founded 1701
; it includes twelve
90,291 divisions: Yale College, which culminates in a four-year bachelor’s degree; postgraduate studies in various specialties, including the exact, natural and human sciences,
as well as 10 professional departments that train specialists in the field of law, medicine, business, environmental protection, as well as theologians, architects, musicians, artists and actors.
The origins of Yale’s history date back to 1640, with the colonial priests’ efforts to establish a college in New Haven. The ideas that formed the basis for the education of the university go back to the traditions and principles of teaching in medieval European universities, as well as the ancient academies of Greece and Rome, where the principle of liberal education was first developed (from Latin liber – free citizen). During the Roman Empire, this principle was embodied through teaching in seven areas of the “liberal arts”: grammar, rhetoric, logic, arithmetic, astronomy, geometry and music.
While similar ideals were used by the founders of Harvard, many of the faculty and professors soon began to question the university’s success. According to the Reverend Solomon Stoddard’s words during one of the college Sunday services in 1703, Harvard became a place of “Feud and Pride … and Waste … You shouldn’t go to college to learn how to compliment men and courting women.” In 1700, ten priests gathered in Branford, Connecticut to discuss the creation of a new college that would avoid Harvard’s mistakes.Most were Harvard graduates disenchanted with the education they received at Harvard.
In 1701, they officially began work on the establishment of the Collegiate School
, as Yale University was then named.
Sundial on campus
In 1717, the founders of Yale University acquired land in the small town of New Haven, then numbering about 1,000 people. The first building they erected in New Haven was named Yale College.In 1718, the university was renamed in honor of the British merchant Elihu Yale, who donated the proceeds from the sale of nine bales of goods, 417 books and a portrait of King George I. A collegiate church and Connecticut Hall were soon erected.
, which today can be seen on the campus as one of the oldest buildings in Yale.
By that time, each college course numbered about 25-30 students; in total, about 100 students studied at the college.Only young men were allowed to study; the average age to enter college was 15-16 years. The selection criterion for college students was oral examinations, which were taken by the president of Yale College. The exams tested knowledge of Latin, Hebrew and Greek, various classical sciences such as logic, rhetoric and arithmetic. Moreover, Latin was the official language of the college, which not only meant teaching in Latin, but also a strict communication regime, in which Latin was the only language that students were allowed to use in conversations outside the classroom and after class.The use of English was prohibited by college rules.
Latin proficiency requirements have remained in place for most of Yale’s history. In the 1920s, university professors suggested abandoning it, but the twenty-seventh President of the United States, William Howard Taft, a Yale graduate and a member of the Yale Corporation, did not allow Yale to abandon age-old traditions. The teachers made changes only in 1931.
In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, graduate schools and professional faculties-institutes were founded, which turned Yale into a real university.In 1810, the Faculty of Medicine was officially established at Yale, followed by the Faculty of Theology in 1822, and the Faculty of Law in 1824. In 1847, a postgraduate course began to work in the field of exact, natural and humanitarian sciences. In 1861, Yale graduate school was awarded the first PhD in the United States of America. In 1869, the Faculty of Arts was founded in Yale, in 1894 – the Faculty of Music, in 1900 – the Faculty of Forestry and Environmental Protection, in 1923 – the Faculty of Nursing Staff, in 1955 – the Theater Faculty, in 1972 – Architectural, and in 1974 – Faculty of Management.Since 1869, women have been enrolled in graduate school at Yale University.
In the early 1930s, following the model of medieval English universities such as Oxford and Cambridge, all Yale students were divided into twelve dorm colleges, each with about 450 members.
This system combined the advantages of the informal atmosphere of small colleges with the extensive capabilities of a large research university. Each college dormitory consists of several buildings that form a cozy rectangular courtyard with shady trees, lawn and comfortable benches.Such a college-dormitory, with a dining room, library, study rooms and meeting room, occupies an entire city block and creates a unique atmosphere of student life. Here students live, eat, communicate, engage in educational and extracurricular activities.
There are twelve colleges in total:
As of 2010, the university ranks 11th place
in the academic ranking of universities in the world.It trains 11 thousand students from 50 states of America and from more than 110 countries. The two thousandth faculty is distinguished by the highest qualifications in their fields of knowledge. The bulk of the university covers 170 acres (69 hectares) of land, stretching from the nursing faculty in the heart of New Haven to the shady residential neighborhoods that surround the theology faculty.
Yale buildings are many, built by famous architects of their time.
The university also owns over 600 acres (243 hectares) of land, which contains all kinds of sports facilities and forested areas – all a short bus ride from the city center. Since the 1930s, Yale has invested heavily in the development of university premises: a new complex of art history faculty was opened, buildings for scientific laboratories, a sports center and a student dormitory were erected. In recent years, restoration work has been carried out on historic buildings and dormitory colleges.
Yale University deserves special mention. In its general and specialized funds, there are 11 million units; the library owns unique collections, archives, music records, maps and other rare exhibits. It is the third largest library in the United States and the second largest university library in the world. A single computerized catalog brings together more than 40 industry libraries located in different parts of the campus: from the extraordinary beauty of the Gothic Sterling Library
, which houses about half of Yale’s book riches, to the modern corpus of the Beinecke collection of rare books and manuscripts
, with more than 800 thousand collection of unique books and documents.

Yale was one of the first universities to welcome international students: the first student from Latin America came here in the 1830s, and the first Chinese student to receive a university degree on American soil entered Yale in 1850. Today Yale is actively involved in various international programs and research.
The university teaches more than 50 foreign languages and more than 600 courses, one way or another related to international relations.
For God For Country And For Yale
In terms of the scale of the buildings, it seems that the university is gigantic, with tens of thousands of students, but in fact it has only 11,000 students. At the same time, they account for 8,500 teaching and service staff. The annual budget of the university is TWO BILLION dollars.
Over the years, at least ten graduates have held the highest position in the state.
Yale University graduated from Samuel Morse (inventor of Morse code), child psychologist Benjamin Spock (whose books are still used by modern child psychologists), writer Sinclair Lewis, economist George Akerlof, President of Pepsi Indra Krishnamurti Nooyi, Chairman of the Board of Directors Boeing James McNerney, Richard Cheney, John Kerry (George W. Bush’s rival in the 2004 election), Hillary Clinton. The list goes on and on. Suffice it to say that all US presidents since 1989 have graduated from Yale University.

Handsom Dan is believed to have become the first living mascot of an educational institution in America.
The current Hands Dan is serial number XVI.
The tradition dates back to 1889. The Handsome Dan I effigy in a glass stand is currently in one of Payne Whitney’s Yale Gymnasium award rooms as
“eternal guardian of treasures confirming the everlasting glory of Yale athletes.”

– Yale University
is one of the most famous and prestigious educational institutions in the world.The university is part of the “Big Three” Ivy League universities: Yale, Hawrward and Princeton. It is one of 9 colleges founded in the colonial period of US history.
History of Yale University
The official date of foundation of Yale University is October 9, 1701, but the history of the university begins much earlier, from 1640, when a group of clergy-colonists put forward the idea of creating an educational institution in which students could not only receive valuable knowledge, but also live under one roof, adopting traditions and sharing experiences with each other.
Yale University was originally called the “Collegiate School”. The university bore this name for 18 years until it received generous financial assistance from a local entrepreneur – Eli Yale, in whose honor the educational institution was renamed.
Every year there were more students at the university, which led to the formation of new faculties. In 1777, the university introduced a program of the humanities and exact sciences, and during the 19th century, graduate and postgraduate departments appeared.
Studying at Yale University has never been easy. For several decades, teaching within the walls of the university was conducted in Latin. English was banned. Even outside the classrooms, students had to speak exclusively in a dead language. Later, Latin nevertheless lost ground, giving way to communication and teaching English. However, until 1931, Latin was a compulsory subject in the Yale curriculum, regardless of specialization.
The main focus of study at Yale University is Arts
, Humanities and Social Sciences
, but not inferior in quality of teaching and faculties of medicine
, nature management
, Applied Sciences
, and the achievements of researchers in the exact sciences do not lag behind American technical colleges.
Yale University is one of the most famous educational institutions in the world, and, as a result, one of the most demanding of applicants, therefore, the university has many talented people among its graduates – from musicians to heads of state (by the way, five US presidents graduated from Yale University) …
Achievements of Yale University
- A team of researchers at Yale University has recoded the DNA of E. coli. During the experiment, scientists replaced some of her genes.This is the first step towards a new discovery – changing the genes of harmful bacteria, so that deadly diseases can be treated without antibiotics and other drugs.
- Yale scientists have developed a drug that significantly reduces the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. Initially, the researchers developed an anti-tumor vaccine, but a side effect of this experiment was the drug’s ability to restore lost memory.
- Within the walls of the university, antibodies were artificially synthesized to strengthen the human immune system.In the near future, scientists will be able to create a new drug that will help in the fight against cancer and AIDS.
- A non-standard solution to the problem of plastic recycling was proposed by scientists at Yale University: during the experiment, they discovered a special type of fungus, for which polyurethane can serve as a power source. The substance released by the bacteria will help fight overcrowded landfills in the future.
Why Choose Yale University?
- The opportunity to get an education in one of the best universities in the world is absolutely free.According to statistics, approximately 10% of Yale students do not pay tuition fees, and another 51% of students receive financial assistance from the university.

Yale University Scholarships and Grants
Yale is one of the few universities that can afford to fully pay for the tuition of their students, it should be noted, not only American, but also foreign.Grants and scholarships are available to those applicants who speak English at a high level, are engaged in social and volunteer activities, are able to correctly express their thoughts and have high scores on exam tests.
The amount of scholarship assistance at Yale University is from 12,000 USD
up to 35,000 USD
per year per student, which covers the lion’s share of tuition costs. More than half of Yale’s students (51%) receive financial aid from the university. This means that almost every applicant, regardless of nationality and country of residence, has the opportunity to become a participant in the scholarship program.Only for this one should try hard, since the issue of funding and free education has always been a real battleground for applicants, where it is necessary to show their intellectual and research potential, which is not within the power of every participant in the scholarship race. Only the best of the best receive grants to study at Yale University.
Free education at Yale University
The university does not ask for confirmation of financial solvency upon admission and offers financial assistance to all students in need.That is, in any case, if the admission decision is positive (the decision is made on the basis of the applicant’s academic results, interview and motivation letter), then the student can be sure that Yale University will financially provide his education.

Yale Summer Schools
Opens Summer Yale University opens doors for school students to get a taste of university education at one of America’s finest universities. Programs for schoolchildren here are not very diverse, as, for example, at Brown University, but they cannot be ignored, because every year more and more teenagers are interested in the opportunity to undergo short-term intensive training at one of the Ivy League universities.Next, we will consider the main programs offered by Yale for schoolchildren 15-18 years old.
Yale Summer School Varieties
The program offers a wide variety of courses in 50 scientific disciplines to choose from, however, when choosing a specific course, you should carefully consider its availability to school students, since Yale summer sessions are also open to university students. Classes in the summer are held in two shifts, and the total duration of each of them is 5 weeks.The first session is held from late May to late June, and the second from early July to early August. During one session, you need to select courses for yourself that would correspond to at least two study credits.
For example, the course Energy, Technology and Society gives 1 academic credit (classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 to 12:15), plus the course “Calculating Functions with One Variable” brings 1 more academic credit (classes on Mondays , Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00 to 12:15).Hence, the student can combine these courses to improve their knowledge of physics and mathematics. In addition, there is an opportunity to study for two months, sequentially combining two sessions, but this option, firstly, will cost twice as much, and secondly, it will become too serious a test for the student, since he will have to live on campus for a long time. Abroad.
The program is designed for only 32 participants, therefore it has a very high competition.First of all, it is intended for schoolchildren interested in mathematics, astrophysics and high-tech. The program consists of two parts: a two-week distance online training and a four-week training at the Leitner Observatory. Classes are held from early July to early August.
- During training, students jointly write a learning outcomes report in the form of a short scientific article based on learning outcomes. At the end of the program, a conference is held where the student gets the opportunity to present the results of his work.The main goal of the program is to develop practical skills in the basics of programming, mathematics, analytical data processing, statistical analysis, writing and research methods. The program will be useful to everyone who wants to link their future with scientific work.
- All summer school participants live in one of the Yale University dormitories, which are located approximately one and a half kilometers from the Leitner Observatory. The road from the observatory to the hostel is accompanied by adults.The dorm rooms are designed for two people, and the curators, educational leader and teaching assistants live in rooms adjacent to the students.
- Participants are provided with three meals a day: breakfast and lunch are delivered for students directly to the observatory. Dinner is always served in the student canteen.
- No academic credits are awarded for this program.
This schedule applies to the Yale Summer Astrophysics Program. Given the specifics of the subject being studied, students of this program work a lot in the evening.

Nadezhda Stryuk graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Yale University in 2017, where she entered on her own after the most ordinary Voronezh school. After studying at one of the best universities in the United States, she got a job at an architecture firm in New York.Now, on her Instagram and LJ, she talks about entering and studying at Yale University, and also gives advice to those who, like her, plan to get higher education in America. ForumDaily publishes her posts in LJ with the permission of the author.

To begin with, I will briefly tell you about myself and how I managed to get to Yale University. I have lived in Voronezh all my life, and when I was in the 8th grade, my mother’s colleague told me that she was studying at a center that helps schoolchildren and students to enter US universities.At that time, I wanted to become a clothing designer, for this I even went to study at an art school in the seventh grade. But in my city there was no faculty where future designers would be trained, so I began to look closely (or, rather, dream) to study at a foreign university. Before that, I was looking more at Europe, but since the opportunity arose to go to the USA, I thought: why not? Thus, I decided to go to this center and find out in more detail what they do.
The center was called the Voronezh Regional Council for International Education, it was one of the centers of the American company EducationUSA, which attracts foreign students to the United States, helps and advises them at all stages of admission.Education USA oversees hundreds of centers in 170 countries of the world, and it so happened that one of the centers opened in Voronezh about 20 years ago. In the center a couple of times a week, classes were held on memorizing new English words, developing spoken language, as well as meetings with US university students and lectures by the center’s advisers. But basically, all the students studied independently. In the center there was a large library with books and other materials for preparing for exams, and the guys came there almost every day, took the necessary book and studied using it.After graduating from one, they took on another – and so about two years: this is how much the process of preparing for admission to American universities takes on average.

When I came to the center, its head, Alexey Andreevich, told me that with a great desire and efforts, it is quite possible to enter top US universities, like Harvard or Yale, and, most importantly, you can study there is completely free! Of course, at first I was skeptical about such promises, but the real stories of successful graduates of the center who went to study in America and a couple of Voronezh students, who at that time were just studying at both Yale and Harvard, convinced me of the opportunity to enter the United States with their forces.
So, towards the end of the 8th grade, that is, in 2010, I started going to VREC and preparing for admission. I was very lucky that I found out about the Voronezh Center quite early, and I had enough time to thoroughly prepare for admission and at the same time not experience too much stress. Although the last half of the year before submitting the documents was still crazy, and then throughout January and February I was relieved of stress … English proficiency exam, which must be taken for admission.At the same time, I learned all the details of the admission process, because admission to American universities and Russian ones differ radically.
And from the beginning of the 10th grade, I have already started preparing for the SAT – this is something like our USE, only for Americans. In the summer after the 10th grade, I passed the first exam according to American standards. In the fall of the 11th grade, I already collected letters of recommendation, wrote essays in English and certified the statement of all my quarter marks from the 8th grade. Unlike Russia, in America the selection committee looks not only at the test results, but also at the average mark of the certificate, recommendations from teachers, extracurricular activities and the achievements of the applicant.
I was collecting documents (and this is a thick folder for each university) in the fall of grade 11, because the deadline for submitting documents to most US universities is January 1. That is, if you want to go to study immediately after leaving school, you need to prepare documents for universities in the first half of the 11th grade. There were quite a lot of folders with documents, since in the USA you can submit documents to an unlimited number of universities at a time, and usually the guys from the Voronezh center send documents to 12-20 universities.I applied at 10, which seems like a huge number in Russia, but is a fairly average number for America. The decision of the selection committee, as a rule, comes at the beginning of April. So since January there have been three months of intense waiting. But then you can no longer worry about the Unified State Exam and calmly wait for the prom while classmates study the latest materials for the Unified State Exam!
On March 29th I found out that I was accepted to Yale !!! On August 18, I flew to the United States to study, the first classes began on August 28.
Arrival in the USA and first meeting with Yale
I met the first Yale students at JFK airport, immediately upon arrival in the United States. The Yale International Student Support Organization, OISS, ordered a shuttle bus for arriving international students that went directly from the airport to New Haven.
Since orientation for foreign freshmen began on August 19, most of the students, including myself, arrived on the 18th, and it was convenient for everyone to travel on the same bus, which departed on August 18 at 9 pm.But I arrived at two o’clock in the afternoon, and I had to hang out at the airport for 7 hours, after I had already spent 10 hours on the plane … It’s good that the students arrived throughout the day, and I waited all 7 hours not alone, but companies of other international students.
When the bus finally arrived, I was literally falling off my feet. By that time, I had already met and chatted with at least 50 students from all over the world, but I didn’t want to talk to anyone else, because I hadn’t slept for about 24 hours.The only desire was to go to bed as soon as possible. I don’t remember moving from New York, because I slept all 2 hours on the bus.
Finally, I was at Yale. It was already dark, but all around were the outlines of Gothic buildings. At the bus we were greeted by many senior students, handed room keys, Yale IDs and bags with small gifts and orientation timetable.

Anya, a girl from Voronezh, who graduated from Yale this spring and now works in New Haven, met me there.She handed me a set of bedding, a pillow and other things necessary for the first time, since in the rooms we are provided only with a bed, a wardrobe and a mattress. By that time, I was so tired that I only had enough strength to take a shower and fall into bed.
The first three days we all lived in the same building of dormitories, and only then settled in our rooms in our buildings. The room I lived in for the first three days was frighteningly small – it’s good that my regular room is more spacious now.

What and how do you study at Yale?
The teaching system at Yale, as in many American universities (including other universities of the famous “Ivy League”), is called Liberal Arts. The name is translated into Russian as “free” or “free arts”. The meaning of the Liberal Arts system is that a student in 4 years – and that is how long the training lasts – acquire knowledge in a wide range of disciplines.This circle includes foreign languages, the art of writing, social studies, exact and social sciences. The emphasis in such an education system is on teaching students to think critically, analyze, write and have a general understanding of a range of disciplines, rather than on the supply of professional skills.
Cross Campus is the central meeting place for students. The building on the far right is the entrance to the library, located below ground level. In the middle is the building of one of the hostels. Photo from personal archive
In practice, this is done as follows.Each semester, the student chooses his own courses – academic subjects. One course costs one “credit”. To earn a bachelor’s degree, you need to earn 36 credits. Thus, you need to take 9 courses a year. For example, one semester has four and the other five. You can take five times twice, and then next year you can take four, or graduate with a large number of earned credits.
Courses can be chosen from all available disciplines, from physics with chemistry to Egyptian studies and medieval literature.But there are some limitations. The first two years, you can choose anything, but by the third you need to decide on a specialty, which is called major, and take courses on your topic.

Let me explain with an example. Let’s take one of the most popular majors at Yale – economics. To get a degree in economics, you need to take 12 courses in economics in 4 years. 8 of them have already been precisely defined (introduction to microeconomics, mathematical analysis, econometrics, etc.)the student has the right to choose when and in what order to take these courses. The remaining 4 subjects can be chosen independently from the courses offered at the Faculty of Economics. Thus, in your specialty you need to take, as a rule, about 12-14 courses, and the remaining 22-24 – from any other disciplines, such as art history, drawing or pedagogy.

But for education to be versatile, students must comply with the so-called distribution requirements.Each must take 3 semesters of foreign language, two writing courses, two math courses, two exact science courses, two liberal arts courses, and two social sciences courses. The description of each course indicates which science it belongs to. For example, the course “International Economics” will count for social science, and “Roman architecture” for the humanities.
The complexity of the courses also imposes restrictions on the choice. That is, you can take complex courses only if you have completed more simple ones on this topic.For example, you can begin to study “financial theory” only by first taking the “introduction to microeconomics”, and quantum physics – after the basics of physics and advanced mathematics.
It may seem to a Russian student that 4-5 courses per semester is very little, because in the Russian Federation there are 16 subjects at the same time … But the fact that we have few courses does not mean that we are not doing anything here! It’s just that the amount of time spent on one item is much more. And in general, this is not the time spent in the classroom, but the time spent in the library at homework.

There is a general principle that the independent mastering of one subject per week, on average, takes twice as much time as you spend in the class itself. That is, if the class meets 2 times a week for an hour and a half, then homework per week will take about 6 hours. If the course is very difficult, then homework can even take 20 hours a week. Last semester, I had 14 hours of classroom lessons every week, and it took me about 30 hours to do my homework!
How Much Does It Cost to Study at Yale
Let’s figure it out.First, we go to the Yale website and look for information about the cost of training there. It can be found. The total cost of tuition and living at Yale for the 2014-2015 academic year was $ 63,250. This amount includes tuition fees $ 45,800, dorms $ 7,800 and meals $ 6,200, as well as the cost of books and personal expenses – $ 3,450. Of course, no one pays directly for personal expenses and books to Yale: this is the average amount that was included in the total bill to help the student and his family plan their tuition costs.The first 2 years (freshman and sophomore years) of training are mandatory to live on campus and eat in the student canteen, thus creating a close-knit atmosphere at Yale and helping newcomers find friends.

Having named the exorbitant – for both Russian and American families – the cost of 60 thousand dollars, Yale is in a hurry to announce that half of the students receive financial assistance, which does not depend on awards and achievements, but only on insufficient family income.Yale prides itself (which it tirelessly mentions in every second booklet) that it covers 100% of the demonstrated lack of funds to pay for tuition for every student, regardless of citizenship. He is also included in a modest number of universities with need-blind admission. This means that the student’s ability to fully pay for tuition does not play a role in the decision of the admissions committee. To paraphrase into the language of Russian universities, the “paid employees” and “state employees” go to the same competition.
Typically, US universities ask for a parent’s bank statement or other proof of ability to pay for tuition before accepting a student.Financial aid in such universities is very limited, and the competition among students counting on it is much higher. Many applicants are offered to take a loan for education, which will need to be paid after graduation. On the one hand, it is convenient and correct, so higher education is available to more people. On the other hand, after graduation, the person will be very limited, because he will have several tens of thousands of dollars in debt. At Yale, the applicant is considered regardless of his financial capabilities.And if he or she is accepted, then they already look at the family’s income and determine the amount of financial assistance. The university does not oblige to take loans. There are only 9 such universities in the United States, Wikipedia provides a full list:
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
University of Berke17
California Institute of Technology
Yale relies on many factors in determining the amount of financial aid.Typically, families whose income is less than $ 65,000 a year do not have to pay anything. Considering that the price includes food and accommodation, studying at Yale will be cheaper than living at home! You can read more about it.
Important clarification: financial aid at Yale is free of charge and does not need to be returned later.

Scholarships and part-time jobs
Having examined the principles of paying for tuition and living at Yale, let’s talk about smaller things: personal expenses, just $ 3450 from the last paragraph of the budget.
There are no scholarships that come monthly on the card, as in Russian universities, in Yale. Students are responsible for toothpaste and coffee at Starbucks. Of course, there are a lot of offspring of rich and famous families: children of senators, big businessmen, famous lawyers, whom their parents sponsor all their expenses … But there are also many less wealthy or more independent students. They earn their own scholarship.
The most profitable thing is to work on campus. And foreign students can only work on campus.On average, students earn $ 12-15 an hour, which is pretty good considering the Connecticut minimum wage is $ 8.70. There are a lot of types of work – you can help a professor in research, work in a library, help in the IT department, be a tutor in a foreign language or mathematics, a graphic designer, an assistant to a master in your college, a photographer, a campus guide, a laboratory assistant or just a clerk in one from numerous departments of Yale. The work schedule can be very flexible, it all depends on the position.You can work from 1 to 19 hours a week. Usually they work 4-10 hours a week.

Suppose that on average a student will work 7 hours a week at a rate of $ 13 per hour, that is, $ 71 per week or $ 364 per month.
It seems to me that it is almost impossible to work more than 12 hours a week and fully study. I worked 7-10, and it was very stressful … The choice of work is always large, especially at the beginning of the school year.Finding something very interesting or getting a paid job on a research team will be much more difficult than getting a job as a paper shifter.
Last year I worked as an assistant organizer of exhibitions in libraries. I have worked on exhibitions for four libraries (there are twenty of them at Yale) – The Sterling Memorial Library, The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, The Haas Family Arts Library, The Lewis Walpole Library. Note that libraries, like most of the buildings at Yale, bear either the names of prominent people associated with Yale, or the names of families who have donated a lot of money to the development of the university.
Well, libraries keep a huge number of archives that they display from time to time. In the reading rooms of these libraries there are museum glass cases, where archives are displayed. The curators selected the exhibits and planned how to display them, while my boss and I were in charge of labels and decoration. Obviously, for the most part, libraries display books, documents, letters, photographs. We prepared various coasters, substrates, frames, attached objects to them, and then installed them on showcases.Everything was made mainly from cardboard and plastic.

I was in the position of assistant organizer of exhibitions from September until the end of the school year. I worked 10 hours a week – 2.5 hours after class from Monday to Thursday. Here 10 hours is quite a lot. There was very little time left for various extracurricular activities. But the work itself was not stressful – you could listen to music or even watch TV shows from the phone if I did something monotonous.
How future US presidents are fed
Many people ask me how I ate at Yale. I ate three meals a day, in university canteens, of which there are 15. Usually three meals a day cost about $ 3000 per semester, but this cost was covered by a scholarship. Ask how they feed in canteens?
The short answer is good, the more detailed one is below.
Each of the 12 residence colleges has its own cafeteria, plus a huge communal dining room for 1000 people – Commons, a canteen in the graduate building and a kosher canteen.You can eat in any of them. At the beginning of the school year, the freshmen took the test, who had already visited how many canteens. All canteens have a buffet system.

An inspector sits at the entrance to each dining room, who needs to present his ID. He conducts it through an electronic device that confirms that this semester the student bought a subscription to the canteens. Guests can be brought in without a membership, but they will have to pay for themselves with a credit card.Breakfast costs about $ 5, and dinner is already $ 12.

Breakfast is served with 8-10 types of cereals, porridge, toasts, bagels, eggs, 2-3 types of fruits, yoghurts, pastries. There are also waffle irons where you can bake yourself a huge waffle with a Y in the middle.
I baked it myself – I ate it myself! 🙂 Photo from personal archive
A salad bar with chopped vegetables appears for lunch, from which you can make your own salad. Also there are slices of ham, cheese, tuna for sandwiches.There are always grilled hamburger patties (hamburger buns included) made from beef and sometimes turkey, pork, or vegetables. There is always chicken in one form or another – most often the breast (each time in a different sauce), and sometimes wings or legs.
Everyone is very fond of chicken tenders – breaded chicken pieces, in KFC they are called “strips”. Salmon is also sometimes served, but they do not always get it tasty, they cook white fish better. There are days of Mesican cuisine when they cook quesadilla and burrito.Hot dishes are served with a side dish of rice, stews, mashed potatoes or French fries. And there are always so many desserts – cupcakes, cakes, cookies, brownies, strudels, and ice cream.

Dinner differs from lunch in that it is the most. For example, 3-4 hot dishes are served for dinner, while 1-2 are served for lunch. Dinner dishes become even more complicated – if at lunch they can offer tuna sandwiches, then for dinner there will already be chicken in Thai sauce or squid in batter.
Drinks always have 2-3 types of coffee, tea, juices, soda machines like Cola, Fanta and milk. Moreover, the choice of milk is very wide – there is regular, low-fat, rice, almond, soy and soy milk with chocolate …
I really like the food system – there is always a huge selection and the food is generally good. My friends jokingly complain that there are too many delicious sweets to resist. But, of course, there are also disadvantages: ready-made salads are rarely tasty, and the quality of meat, except for chicken, is not necessary once at a time.
How to Apply to Yale
The first step is to realize that the process of entering the United States is fundamentally different from the procedure for entering Russian universities. Therefore, before starting to prepare, you need to carefully study and understand (at least approximately) what documents to collect, how and where to take exams and how to send an application.
7) https://www.commonapp.org/Login – most applications to universities are submitted through this system. It makes sense to register in advance and study the questions and fields to fill out.Each university also asks to fill out an additional questionnaire with its own questions and essay topics. Pay special attention to the essay, you need to start thinking about it in advance!
Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard, Yale, MIT – universities that, in the minds of the average student, are in a different reality: with green lawns, wise professors, old libraries and neat campuses. T&P found out how much the training costs, what the admission procedure looks like and what the top universities in the world have to apply to applicants.New issue – Yale University.
It is believed that it was at Yale that the university symbol first appeared – a bulldog named Handsome Dan. Since then, since 1889, one dog replaces another at the university – now it is Handsome Dan XVI. You can even find biographies and causes of death of all predecessors of the current symbol.
Yale University’s main campus is located in New Haven and covers an area of 260 acres. The golf course and nature reserves in the hinterland of Connecticut are twice as large.In total, the campus consists of 439 buildings. Most of the buildings are made in the Gothic style: on the walls of some of them there are sculptures of people related to the university at one time or another: a writer, an athlete, a socialite drinking tea, a sleeping student. It looks like the walls of the buildings of individual faculties are decorated – for example, the wall of the School of Law is decorated with an image of a policeman chasing a thief and arresting a prostitute. On the walls, you can even find a picture of a student resting with a mug of beer and a cigarette.
In 1894, the Police Department was founded to ensure campus security – there are blue telephones on campus that can immediately contact the police.
The campus is organized following the example of Cambridge and Oxford: there are 12 residential colleges, each of which has its own distinctive architecture, secret courtyards, its own dining room, living rooms. But unlike British universities, where colleges manage the money themselves, decide for themselves which disciplines to introduce and which not, Yale University remains unitary.Of all the residential colleges, only two – Silliman and Timothy Dwight – are freshmen. Colleges are named after important sites, significant historical events, or famous Yale alumni.
Museums and Libraries
The Yale University Library is considered one of the leading research libraries in the world. It contains about three million books and is located in 22 campus buildings. A significant part of the materials is available to students in electronic form. The museum complex consists of Yale University Art Gallery, Yale Center for British Art, Peabody Museum of Natural History and Collection of Musical Instruments.All museum collections are available to visitors.
