Why Vanderbilt

The ability to take classes across different schools (especially a music and arts and science school) was something I really cared about in a college. I also love Vanderbilt's balance of life; I felt that students here could have great academic and social lives, with neither being too overwhelming.

I love the Freshman Commons system here at Vanderbilt. It's a great way to get to really know the people you'll be spending the next four years with, and I love being able to see familiar faces wherever I go.

 Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

My Russian Fairytales class is incredibly interesting. I was able to learn so much about the tradition of magic tales along with understanding the context of these tales and how they reflect cultural issues not only in Russia, but in the modern world and USA today. The tales we read are also so often unexpectedly hilarious.
