Bulldog Days 2012

Bulldog Days 2012 included tours, talks, demonstrations, performances, and other activities designed to introduce the prospective freshmen to life on campus.
Yale College admitted 1,975 to the Class of 2016. These students were selected from a record-high 28,975 applicants.
The prospective students were welcomed to campus by President Richard C. Levin (left); Jeffrey Brenzel, dean of undergraduate admissions; and Mary Miller, Yale College dean.
One highlight of Bulldog Days was an Academic Fair in the amphitheatre at Payne Whitney Gymnasium.
Professors from nearly every department, from the sciences ...
... to the humanities, ...
... were there to answer questions about classes, majors, and academic programs at Yale.
Admitted students learned about Yale's offerings outside the classroom at the Extracurricular Bazaar held in Lanman Center at Payne Whitney Gymnasium.
Representatives from over 300 student organizations were on hand to talk about their activities — ...
... from performance troupes ...
... to sporting teams ...
... to social clubs.
Students also got a taste of Yale's hometown of New Haven — literally — at a reception on Old Campus featuring samples from some of New Haven’s famous pizzerias including Pepe’s, Modern, Yorkside, and BAR.
