Why Vanderbilt

I Vanderbilt because it was the perfect combination of everything I cared about most in a university. I wanted to go somewhere that was well known for its academics, but I also wanted to go to a school where students wanted to be social and happy and participate in activities besides just academics. Finally, Nashville is the perfect city for me! It isn't overwhelmingly big and it isn't too small. On top of that, its music scene is amazing and the amount of variety in terms of not just music but also food and activities is amazing!

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

My favorite organization so far has been my sorority. It helped me make new friends and become more involved on campus in general! I also really love our philanthropy and the easy opportunity the sorority gives me to give back to my community!

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

One of my favorite classes was my First Year writing seminar called Representations of War! I really liked it because we got to read books and watch movies that I found to be incredibly interesting and important. On top of that, I really liked my professor, who served as an excellent mentor for me during my first semester at Vanderbilt.
