To shake things up a bit, I wanted to give other non-blogging Vanderbilt students the chance to get a few words in. As we finish the Fall 2011 semester, we are excited for the coming of Winter Break, the ability to sleep in, watch TV, and hang out more than is possible while school is...

There are a few items that I either brought to college as a First-Year or bought as the years went by. These items have more or less saved my life (and grades and money, etc) since I’ve been here. Allow me to list them!
Last weekend, one of the service organizations with which I’m involved, Vandy 4 Vision, got together with Alpha Phi Omega, the co-ed service fraternity at Vandy to make occluders for Prevent Blindness Tennessee (PBT).
Almost one year ago, I blogged about Panhellenic Preview Day, since I was interested in joining a sorority. This past Saturday was Panhellenic Preview Day again, but this time I was on the other side, talking mostly to freshman girls planning on going through recruitment in the spring.
“You’ve never been to Jeni’s?! What is wrong with you?” This is how I started my Friday night. When my friend Stephanie found out that I had never been to her favorite ice cream place before, she demanded that I get in her car immediately so we could fix this problem.
This weekend, a friend had a few visitors from out of town to show around. While we did spend a lot of time introducing these people to Vanderbilt and student life here, we decided to go exploring downtown Saturday night and see all the Halloween festivities downtown.
As you may already know, I arrived in Nashville on Thursday so that I could settle myself in before I volunteered for Move Crew. Move crew efficiently moves in the entire first-year class in under 5 hours. I knew that after last year, when the upperclassmen moved me, that I had to pay it forward...
Every year, the week before school begins, Vanderbilt alumni chapters around the country hold Summer Send-Off parties. These gatherings bring together current Vanderbilt students, alumni, family and friends in order to welcome new students to the University. The Send-Off gives these new students (and their families) their first taste of the amazing Vanderbilt community.
