Trailblazers, Yale Alumni Magazine, Sep/Oct 2018

Yale Alumni Magazine carried an article on Yale-NUS’ first cohort of graduates in its Sep/Oct 2018 issue. The graduates shared their experiences as the pioneer cohort of the College, the opportunities provided by the College, and how their Yale-NUS education has helped them in their postgraduate pathways. The Magazine noted that the percentages of Yale and Yale-NUS 2017 graduates who went into finance or consulting are similar—27 percent to 24 percent. It interviewed Yale-NUS Founding President Pericles Lewis who said that the first Yale-NUS alumni have been “broader than our Yale college students”, and he felt that for Yale-NUS students, a lucrative career is “not the driving force in the way it is for certain segments of [Yale’s] undergraduate population.”
