Vanderbilt is the place where I found curious, collaborative students. The professors here make me smarter as a student, but the people make me more educated as a person.
Describe a favorite activity/organization and why you like it.
I love being a Resident Advisor because it is a job all about connections. I spend a lot of my time thinking about the common ground that all of the students here share, but also how we all differ, and how that looks. It has been so challenging and so fulfilling to serve in this role, and I feel like I am making the school a better place because of it.
Describe a favorite class and why you like it.
As a Bio minor, I took zoology as one of my elective classes, and I am now it's biggest advocate. Once a week we had a lab where we got to see live examples of whatever we were studying, and we also were able to do dissections of preserved specimens. I was so excited for class and lab every week, and it has completely changed how I look at the world around me.
