Yale SOM is closely tied to the broader university both in its location and its programs. That means you have easy access to the splendors of the university's neogothic campus and the wealth of art museums, performance spaces, and libraries. Take classes, attend talks, and get to know students at the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, the Law School, the Medical School, and other programs at Yale.
Yale University is set in a lively and diverse city, with easy access to New York City, Boston, and shoreline New England.
A walk of a few blocks from the Yale SOM campus takes you past the much-loved food carts that pull up along the streets every weekday or one of the city's highly regarded restaurants; the boutiques along Chapel Street or a neighborhood market in East Rock; a top-notch regional theater or the busy nightclub district.
And then there's the pizza—a subject of great conversation and debate here.
Jump on a train and, in less than two hours, you're in New York City for a job interview, other professional activities, or just a night out.
A sample of resources
Museums: The Yale Art Gallery, the Yale Center for British Art, and the Peabody Museum of Natural History, a children's favorite where Rudolph F. Zallinger's famous The Age of Reptiles mural adorns the Great Hall, are all on the Yale Campus.
Restaurants: New Haven has becomea foodie city, from the Wooster Square neighborhood, where locals debate the merits of Pepe's and Sally's apizza, to fine dining establishments such as the Union League Cafe and Ibiza, which one New York Times critic rated the best Spanish restaurant in the United States.
Outdoor Recreation: You'll have easy access to parks and other outdoor facilities, including East Rock and West Rock Parks, which provide hiking and spectacular views a few minutes from campus; Yale's acclaimed golf course; the Farmington Canal Linear Park, a former canal and rail bed converted to an 84-mile biking and walking trail from New Haven to Northampton, Massachusetts; and Lighthouse Point Park and Carousel, a picnic and swimming spot on Long Island Sound.
Beyond New Haven: Just a short train or car ride away from New Haven, you can explore shoreline beaches or visit the beautiful Connecticut countryside. Go camping at Hammonasset State Park in Madison and enjoy the park's beach areas and nature preserve. Visit Guilford's historic Town Green, or shop popular outlet malls in nearby Clinton. In Branford, take a cruise around the Thimble Islands.
