Why I Chose Yale - Glee Style

Here is something light-hearted for Friday. The Yale admissions office in conjunction with current students and alumni produced this video for prospective students. If you enjoy Glee or High School Musical or just appreciate that type of humor, you'll get a good chuckle as well as an insight on how colleges and universities are trying to reach their audience.

If you are at school, the box below is probably white. You need to go to and do the override at the bottom and then come back to this page and go to View-Refresh and you will be able to see the video.

  1. As a recent veteran of the "college tour and information session" circuit, I found this incredibly amusing because it's so close to the truth! (I believe I've met the couple in the front row!)

    It's also, likely, quite effective. I think we'd do well to pay attention to this trend and come up with something "Oakridgesque" that would appeal to prospective parents and students alike. We have extraordinarily creative, talented and funny kids here who could run with something like this - and do a fabulous job.
