Had a nice tour of the campus. The Yale Art Gallery was the best college gallery we've visited. A lot of history.

Check out the Payne Whitney Athletic Facility. An older classic building which was way ahead of its tim. Also the Yale Golf Course is a must see/play if you golf. Art musuem and Woolsey Hall for theatre/musical events.
