I chose Vanderbilt because it had everything that I was looking for. It has amazing study abroad programs, undergraduate research opportunities, great connections for internships, and excellent academics in both of my majors. When I visited, it moved beyond statistics and I realized that I was comfortable here.
Describe a favorite activity or organization and why you like it.
My favorite organization is Inside 'Dores because it helped me decide to attend Vanderbilt and is a way I can reach other students who have some of the same questions that I did. It is gives me an excuse to try lots of new activities so that I can write about them.
Describe a favorite class and why you like it.
One of my favorite classes so far has been Developmental Psychology. It relies on background information from all of my previous psych classes and expands on that knowledge by examining the origin of issues. The professor is also highly entertaining.
Describe your most memorable Nashville or off-campus experience.
One of my first weekends after moving to Nashville I got to experience Shakespeare in the park. They were performing A Midsummer-night's Dream and it was amazing. It was a good start to being a student here at Vanderbilt.
List some of your favorite books, movies, TV shows, or musical artists.
My favorite show is Psych. I like mystery books and classics, like Slaughterhouse-5. I love action comedy movies.
