From Ancient Greece and Rome, American colleges had to take the  principle of liberal education , which implied personality comprehensive development. And from the oldest English universities, Oxford and Cambridge, a collegial structure, that is, a college dormitory, where students not only study together but also live and communicate during extracurricular time.

It's on such principles Harvard was founded, the oldest university in the United States. Now this prestigious educational institution and Yel's eternal rival, but at beginning of the XVIII century priests, who were took  care of formation of Americans though , seemed university was laying wrong foundations and instead of inculcating virtues, - plants false principles, develops pride and creates unhealth competition.

In 1701, the learned men, including Harvard graduates, and  priests, finally got the right to correct  mistake, and create a new university, which became Yelem. At first , it was called the Collegiate School, and its current name was received only in 1717 , in honor of  British merchant and entrepreneur Elihu Yel, who donated books and money for the college development

It was never easy to study in Yale. At first, the official college language, where teaching was conducted, was Latin, - and all students had to communicate in dead language even  outside classrooms . Later it was changed by English, but before 1931, all the students of Yale, regardless of specialization, were obliged to study Latin without fail.
