Black and Gold Days


Black and Gold Days

Black and Gold Days is a half-day visit program for high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. Over the course of the day, visitors will attend sessions on preparing for college, selective admissions, and the financial aid process. They will also participate in a panel discussion with faculty and current students, and take a student-led walking tour of Vanderbilt's 330-acre, park-like campus.

Black and Gold Days is the perfect way to begin the college search process!

Please check back in fall 2015 for more information.

We typically offer five to six Black and Gold Days in January through March. Dates and registration for 2016 Black and Gold Days will be available in December 2015.
