Why Vanderbilt

I absolutely fell in love woth the campus when I visited, and that along with the balance of academics and campus involvement that a lot of the students have were major reasons I ended up deciding to attend Vanderbilt.

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

Vanderbilt Student Volunteers for Science is a program where groups of students go to elementary and middle schools around Nashville every couple of weeks to teach short science lessons to classes of kids. It’s such an amazing and fun program that is super rewarding! It’s definitely something I look forward to whenever we go! 

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

One of my favorite classes so far has been my introductory computer science class, we learned the basics of coding in Java and got to make tons of cool little programs! I had never taken a coding class before, but the class really showed me how much I actually enjoyed it!

Describe your most memorable Nashville or off-campus experience.

My friends and I went roller skating at the Brentwood Skate Center and it was an absolute blast! We had so much fun and the place looked like it was straight out of the 70s, which gave it such a cool atmosphere! Also we found out they were having a raffle drawing while we were there, and one of my friends ended up winning a Nintendo Switch, so that was pretty wild.
