Why Vanderbilt

I remember on my first tour, I was told that Vanderbilt was one of the happiest universities in the US. At this point in the college decision process, I hadn't heard the same about other universities. This was the main reason I chose to apply and attend Vanderbilt. As the school year went on, I realized that not everyone was happy at one given point. We all are going through our own issues and studies. However, I realized that I was amongst people who were supportive of me and only wanted the best for me. This campus has the most loving and passionate students I know, and that's what makes this campus different from any other. It's not just college - it's a home.

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

I love being a Resident Advisor on main campus! There's a lot of programming and event planning, and it's awesome to be a part of a team that tries to foster community in a residence hall.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

I absolutely love American Social Movements; it's a nice change from all the STEM courses I have to take for my major and I've learned a great deal on different movements throughout history. The current events unfolding concerning various social issues sparks great discussion every class.

Describe your most memorable Nashville or off-campus experience.

One day, out of the blue, I decided to go to Centennial with some friends and just take a tour around the area. At this point in the semester, I was feeling overwhelmed with work and feeling as though I had hit a wall. Once we toured Centennial and walked around, we went to Broadway and walked along the Cumberland River Pedestrian Bridge. This was such a great break from the hustle and bustle of student life. Now, whenever I feel overwhelmed, I know I need to take a step back and get off campus. Nashville is a great city to do that in!
