We arrive at a Yale for Life program having poured ourselves into sometimes difficult reading in the months before; perhaps a bit uncertain “if we’ve still got it” in class with our fellow Yalies. We find, somewhat surprisingly, that this shared challenge offers us an immediate commonality. As we go through the week, sharing discovery, wonder, laughter, and mutual respect, that shared challenge becomes a bond.
At Yale for Life we share a new experience, a new challenge, with new people – and we have all this in common. We share a love of the truth, of discovery, of the hard work that must be done to really learn – and which we never have the chance to do in our daily lives. To do this in the greatest setting ever created for this – Yale – and in the site of our youth, breeds the Yale for Life community.
