Why Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt challenges me in multiple dimensions while coming alongside me to support that growth, whether that be in a class for my major, in a course I'm taking simply out of interest, orin an opportunity outside of academics. I feel encouraged and seen by both my classmates and my professors, and I am constantly inspired by those who surround me. I'm grateful to be a part of such a collaborative environment where the only competition is with myself.

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

Vitality Dance Company has easily been the best part of my Vanderbilt experience. This close group of girls made me feel at home on campus, and I frequently refer to them as myfamily. As a member, I have been able to both create and perform, continue to grow as a dancer, and lead alongside some of my best friends. We have classes open to the Vandy community too so come dance with us!

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

I greatly enjoyed all my semesters in the large ensembles at Blair. Dr. Verrier has served as a mentor for me throughout my entire time here, and he always makes a sincere effort to check in with the well-being of all his students. He supports me as both a student musician and a person, and I am constantly learning from him.
