One of the most influential universities in the United States, located at New Haven, Conn. Only Harvard University and William and Mary College are older among American institutions of learning. Four signers of the Declaration of Independence and three members of the Constitutional Convention were Yale men. The founding of the Institution dates from 1701.
A great place to visit, or study. Walk amongst the old buildings on campus, or take a coffee at one of the many cafes. You'll feel smarter just hanging out here
