Why Vanderbilt

I went on my tour and fell in love with the campus immediately. The trees and architecture are absolutely beautiful, combined with warm weather and a bustling city only minutes away.

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

My favorite organization is of course being a tour guide. I love getting to show people how much I love Vanderbilt and how they could too!

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

My favorite class right now is country music. I know absolutely nothing about country music, and although I previously viewed it with disdain, I have grown to love it. The fact that we are in the capital of country music only adds to the fun.

Describe your experience becoming a part of the Vanderbilt community.

I was terrified about moving to a new part of the country knowing no one or what it would be like, but I met new people every day and I ended up being great friends with them, making me feel like I am part of one huge family, while also still meeting new people every day.
