    Embrace the tradition of pipe smoking at Yale University

    Yale University is the third-oldest institution of higher education in the  #USA founded in 1701. Yale has graduated many notable alumni, including U.S. Presidents, U.S. Supreme Court Justices, living billionaires, and many heads of state. The university's assets include an #endowment valued at $25.4 billion as of June 2016, the second largest of any U.S. educational institution. The Yale University Art Gallery, the country's first university-affiliated #artmuseum, contains more than 180,000 works, including Old Masters and important collections of modern art. One Yale graduation #tradition dating back over 140 years involves graduates receiving clay pipes along with a small packet of tobacco that you’re supposed to smoke and crush afterwards to symbolize the end of an era—a legendary 4-year era. Established in 1872, The Yale Record is the world's oldest humor magazine.
