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.
According to Totalfratmove.com, Vanderbilt University has the Number One Fraternity/ Sorority scene in the nation! These rankings, compiled by Princeton Review, will be published in their 2012 edition of The Best 376 Colleges. Some of you may be appalled by this award, but quite frankly, Greek life truly makes Vanderbilt unique, even if you choose...
Freshman year is over. Yes, today I finished my final presentation and I no longer have any schoolwork for this semester. My mom has come to visit and help me pack, and by Friday I will be moved out of the beautiful Commons and en route back to sunshine-y Florida.

I am worn out. Not from finals though, but from tumbling for the last hour. My floor went to a gymnastics center about 15 minutes away for an “open gym,” which allowed us to pretty much do whatever we wanted on the equipment, as long as we were safe.
Today, I am moving out of Stambaugh House. I never thought this day would come. Moving out of the Commons is bittersweet. How has an entire year already come and gone? It seems like just yesterday that I moved in. Unfortunately, the move-out process is a little more arduous than the move-in process.
Since I’m almost done with my first year at Vandy (STILL can’t believe it), I figured I would give any high school seniors out there my two cents about freshman year, more specifically, what NOT to freak out about:
