About this livestream


The college experience is as multifaceted as it is dynamic. You’ve probably spent a lot of time thinking about your applications — but what happens after you actually get in?

In this episode of A day in the life, Hale will be discussing his experiences as a student at Yale. He'll walk you through the typical week in the life of a student and, along the way, provide tips for schedule creation and time management.

Hale will not only be covering classes, but also his extracurriculars and what he likes to do in his free time. Drop by to ask a few questions or stay for the whole stream for an in-depth look at what life is like at a top-tier Ivy League university.

Your host

Undergrad College: Yale University '21

Work Experience: I am a senior at Yale and excited to begin my fifth admissions cycle working with CollegeVine. After four years of working directly with students, I can't wait to engage with the people and the process in new and innovative ways online.
