Vanderbilt represents everything I ever wanted in a school. On any given day, my peers work on incredible academic projects, put on amazing cultural performances, and make this community a place of warmth and care. I love Vanderbilt because it gives me everything I could ask for. I have a social life, my classes allow me to grow, my professors care about me, and my friends are some of the most amazing people I have ever met. Vanderbilt is my home.
List a few of your activities. Describe a favorite activity/organization and why you like it.
Relay for Life Vanderbilt Association of Hispanic Students Tour Guides Alpha Chi Omega Sorority Student Worker Relay for Life is a student org that works to put on a Relay event on campus and raises thousands of dollars every year for the American Cancer Society. The coolest part about Vandy Relay is that millions of dollars raised around the country comes back to campus for cancer research at our Med Center. Cancer affects so many people, and I love being a part of the effort to eradicate cancer in our lifetime.
Describe a favorite class and why you like it.
My favorite class from freshman year was U.S. Culture in World Politics. It was taught by Professor Chiozza and it illuminated many aspects of global politics I had never considered before. I learned a lot about the underestimated effect of U.S. pop culture on the world around us, and even more so on the global political stage.
