Video: ‘That’s Why I Toured Yale’

Directed by Kurt Schneider ’10 and starring Sam Tsui ’11 and Simone Policano ’16, “That’s Why I Toured Yale” is a follow-up to the viral 2010 admissions video, “That’s Why I Chose Yale.”

The video showcases both the beautiful Yale campus and a unique Yale wit in a way that will resonate with prospective students,” said Dean of Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid Jeremiah Quinlan in the Yale Daily News. “I am confident it will make a strong impression on our campus visitors, who will watch the video before their information session or tour. I am also optimistic that the video online will reach a diverse group of prospective students from around the world who are unable to visit campus.”

The video debuted on Dec. 8 with a premiere in Davies Auditorium, featuring Schneider, Tsui, Policano and Andrew Johnson ’06 as VIP guests.
