The newly admitted members of the Vanderbilt Class of 2018 are talented, diverse, passionate, and, judging from their online reactions to the news, very excited. Moments after decisions were released, our newest Commodores started sharing their news on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. It’s been a ton of fun to watch the responses of these students and their families as they react to the news that they’ll be spending the next four years at Vanderbilt.
