Yale in September


September at Yale means green grass, green leaves, blue skies, abundant sunshine, and cheerful, cordial freshmen.  Students embrace "shopping period," strolling to class in shorts, shades and flip-flops.  September days are precious, because the best of Yale is outdoors. On Cross Campus lawns, in courtyards, on intramural fields, at the Yale Bowl, on the steps of  Lanman-Wright Hall on Old Campus, at a sunny setting outside Beinecke Library, or on sidewalks along Chapel Street.  The scenes below depict a recent afternoon in September New Haven.
