Why Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt and the communities that comprise it encourage me to be my best. The students here genuinely enjoy seeing not only their friends but everyone succeed. Furthermore, Vandy's proximity to the dynamic city of Nashville allows me to grow through the exploration of all my interests, ranging from Indie-Rock Music to Real Estate Development.

Describe a favorite activity/organization and why you like it.

One of my favorite organizations is the Vanderbilt Undergraduate Real Estate club. I enjoy it because I get to help other students gain an understanding of a topic I am very passionate about. Furthermore, being part of the club allows me to meet local and national business leaders who shed great insight on different avenues of life!

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

One of my favorite classes was "The Jewish Diaspora," taught by Prof. Saul Kelner.  The class was awesome because it combined sociological concepts with Jewish Studies and I learned about Jewish life in all areas of the world, from Salt Lake City to Morocco.

Describe your experience becoming a part of the Vanderbilt community.

My experience has been incredible so far.  The Ingram Commons was a great place to transition from my gap year to a college setting.  The friendly faces of other students and the faculty have made joining the Vanderbilt community a smooth ride.
