Why Vanderbilt

I chose Vanderbilt because of its strong community full of diverse, talented, and kind people willing to help each other grow as individuals. The faculty and peers that I have met so far have helped me realize some of my personal and professional goals, as well as encouraging me to step outside of my comfort zone. Vanderbilt also provides me the opportunity to explore more deeply all of my passions and develop a path best suited to me.

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

One of my favorite clubs so far is Vanderbilt Piano society, which is a new club this year that has nonetheless grown so much. It provides a fun, relaxing, and stress free environment for piano enthusiasts to share and enjoy music together, as well as pushing each other to become better musicians. I only hope that the club will grow as I move through my years here!

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

My favorite class this semester has definitely been Mind and Brain, which is a cognitive neuroscience class. The class covers fascinating topics like attention, memory, executive functions, and more.
