Favorite part of Branford: This is a tough one! I love so much about Branford, and even more about Branfordians. Though all of Yale is beautiful, I especially love the way Branford changes throughout the seasons -- people bluebooking on the lawn in the fall, the leaves turning colors on the swing tree, the snowmen and igloos that pop up after the first big snow, the smell of the spring blossoms. If you like this, you'll enjoy living in Vandy, too!
Favorite Yale Tradition: No contest here: the Yale Symphony Orchestra Halloween Show. Imagine running out onto a stage to the screams of 2,600 people at midnight on Halloween, dressed up as a Single Lady, Scooby Doo Character or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle! Everyone feels like they're at a rock concert, and if you were in the movie, you're a celebrity the day after.
Favorite Freshman Year Memory: Experiencing the moment that everyone eventually has, when you realize that though you are looking forward to graduation, you are really going to miss Yale. So, enjoy the ride!
