Why Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt is a place where I can explore academic and professional goals while still having fun nd being involved with campus life.

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

I love the Vanderbilt Rowing Team because I have found a strong community with my teammates and coaches. The team encourages each member to achieve athletically and academically, while building a social base as teammates.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

I especially enjoy my Italian class because it brings people together. Within the first semesters of learning Italian or any new language, the most common ay to practice is to talk bout your life and family. Because of the nature of the class and also the fantastic professors, I can even find community through simply a classroom lecture.

Describe your most memorable Nashville or off-campus experience.

Laser tag in downtown Nashville was a very good off-campus experience. My friends love going out into the world and trying to break routine to have fun, so laser tag was an easy and relatively cheap solution.
