Daily Information Sessions and Tours
Our information session and tour is your chance to move beyond pictures on a website and words on a page into a real-life Vanderbilt experience.
The experience begins with an hour-long presentation from an admissions counselor, who will give you key insights into the admissions process, academic and student life, our financial aid programs, the history of our storied institution, life in Music City, and more. Afterward, a student tour guide will lead you across our beautiful 330-acre, park-like campus, as s/he details the Vanderbilt experience from a student’s perspective. Lasting approximately 90 - 110 minutes, the campus tour includes a visit to a residential hall, a look at several academic facilities, The Commons Center, and more.
