It’s an exciting week for ORA as we open our doors at Yale University for the first time. With 8 students all living, eating, learning and sleeping in the world-famous Pauli Murray College, it promises to be an exciting week full of culture and information.
The Global Leadership course will teach students a range of important skills, including management theory and public speaking, whilst also learning more about Yale itself and the admissions process of colleges in America.
Many pupils arrived via the Amtrak train on Sunday and saw the beautiful New York skyline on their way. As they entered the beautiful Yale campus, many were mesmerised by the stunning architecture and grandness of the College, excited for their stay.
Grabbing their welcome packs, tote bags and arrival information, pupils eagerly entered the College and settled in, acquainting themselves with other students and getting to know everyone quickly. Some icebreaker games ensured that conversations were sparked and pupils felt comfortable and welcomed by their peers.
With so much planned for our students at Yale, the next week is sure to be fascinating, fun-filled and full of activities, so keep a regular eye on the blogs to discover what they get up to.
