New York Times bestselling author Harlan Cohen talks with Yale students about life in college. These three dynamic students (two of whom are first generation students) share why they chose Yale, finding community as a racial minority, roommates, and how they got involved with student organizations such as Yale Community Council, Yale Association for African Peace and Development, AIESEC Yale. They also share their personal stories of rejection and feelings of vulnerability while attending an Ivy League University and reaching positions of leadership. Watch the entire college conversation with Yale students here.  For more videos visit and subscribe to BeforeCollegeTV on YouTube.
