Why Vanderbilt

I chose Vanderbilt for several reasons, but the main reason was the environment on campus. I am constantly impressed by the ambition and accomplishments of my peers, but at the same time I have found it to be a very collaborative environment. Additionally, the strong neuroscience program and the access to academic opportunities, such as research, played an important role in my decision. I also picked Vanderbilt because of the wide variety of activities to become involved with both on and off campus with the city ofNashville.

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

One of my favorite organizations is Vanderbilt Emergency Medical Society. Through the organization you can take a course to receive your Emergency Medical Responder license. Once you have your license, you are able to volunteer with Vanderbilt LifeFlight. This includes opportunities in the VUMC Emergency Department and also at events around Nashville, such as concerts at Bridgestone arena.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

One of my favorite classes was a selected topics humanities course on the refugee experience in Nashville and beyond. I really enjoyed the class because it was taught by two professors and they frequently brought in speakers who were experts in this field. The class also had a final research project  and my project was on refugee education in Nashville, which is a cause that I am still involved with today. 

Describe your most memorable Nashville or off-campus experience.

During my first year my friends and I found out that the Titans were unveiling their new jersey design on a Wednesday night on Broadway. To celebrate, Florida Georgia Line played a free hour and a half concert, which me and all of my friends were able to go to.
