Favorite Moments from Fall

Students in the Master of Advanced Management program share their favorite memories from their first semester at Yale SOM.

Yale is not just a school with reputable professors and talented students—it’s a community with people who care about each other. All the events and people I met here show their respect, inclusiveness, and sympathy for humans’ lives and things happening around them. The faculty, staff, and fellow students formed a family for us international students in New Haven. I am really grateful to be in such a great community.

The beauty of this fall semester is in the myriad of events that have been available to us outside of classes and recruitment. Some favorites include Friendsgiving, the SOM Talent Show, World Cup watch parties, the Harvard-Yale football game, multiple birthday celebrations, Friday Arvo table tennis tournaments, and cohort dinners. Our MAM Class of ’23 loves hanging out together and supporting each other. Thank you to my cohort, Student Life, and AASL for a great first term at SOM—and what a poetic end to the term with the first snow in New Haven!

Morning, afternoon, and evening—each moment ahas a different charm during the beautiful autumn season at Yale SOM. A few of my favorite parts of this semester were tailgating at a football game, Friendsgiving, and the first snowfall in New Haven.

My time at Yale SOM has been filled with so many wonderful and fun new friendships. One of my favorite moments in fall was cooking dinner with my friend Lam. It is always the best gift to cook and spend time with each other.
