Vanderbilt Road Show
We're going on tour. Come see us in venues across the country.

Each ninety-minute program typically features a media presentation led by admissions officers, a question-and-answer session, and alumni or Vanderbilt parents as speakers. Don't miss this chance to visit with members of our admissions staff and to learn more about Vanderbilt's academic opportunities, student life, and affordability through financial aid.

1. What exactly is the Vanderbilt Road Show?
While we encourage all families to visit campus, the Road Show provides you with one way to learn about Vanderbilt without having to travel. Each 90-minute program typically features a media presentation led by Vanderbilt admissions officers and a question-and-answer session. Join us to learn more about Vanderbilt's unique campus, premier academic programs, the admissions process, and expanded financial aid opportunities. Many events will also feature a current Vanderbilt parent or alumnus/a as a guest speaker.
2. When are the Vanderbilt Road Shows?
In 2014 we will hold one leg of Vanderbilt Road Show events in May & June with another leg to follow in August & September.
3. Will my admissions officer be in attendance at the Road Show in my area?
While we try our best to send admissions officers to their territories, it is not always possible. All of our admission officers are knowledgeable about the admissions process, as well as campus life, so the presentation will be informative and worthwhile to attend, even if your counselor is not in attendance. If you are interested in establishing contact with him or her, you can find your admissions counselor's name and email address on the admissions counselor website.
4. My city is not listed. Will Vanderbilt be visiting my area any time soon?
Our admissions counselors travel to various cities and states to participate in high school visits or college fairs. Please check our college fair website or speak with your high school counselor to find out if we will be visiting your area soon. We also host evening programs across the United States and internationally with other colleges and universities. These joint travel programs typically include formal presentations from each school, as well as time for questions.
5. The event I prefer to attend is full. Is there a waitlist for the event? How can I attend?
In addition to regular registration, each event also has a waitlist set up for registration. If your preferred event is showing as full, we have reached capacity for the venue and the waitlist is currently full as well. We recommend checking back at another time as guests may change their plans and cancel their registration. You may also want to check our travel page or speak with your high school counselor to find out if we will be visiting your area soon.
6. If I cannot attend a Road Show event, how can I visit campus?
All students and parents are encouraged to visit campus. You may schedule an information session and campus tour, or attend any of our campus programs. Please see our campus visit website for more information. Registration is required for all of our campus visit programs, so we encourage visitors to register in advance and confirm your visit prior to making travel arrangements.
6. May I bring my parents or friends to the Road Show?
When you register, you are welcome to include your parents in the total number of people in your party. We strongly encourage additional students to register individually for the event.
7. I am a high school counselor interested in attending the Vanderbilt Road Show. How do I register to attend?
We would be happy to have you! Please email Road Shows Coordinator Andrew Moe with your name, high school, the event location date, and number of guests in your party. Due to seating capacity, please let us know as soon as possible so we can accommodate you.
8. Do I need to wear specific attire to the Road Show?
No. Please come dressed comfortably and you may wish to bring a jacket or sweater as some venues may be drafty.
For further information, please contact Road Shows Coordinator Andrew Moe.
