Why Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt offers the perfect balance between academics and a social life. I wanted to go to a university that would challenge me academically without a stressful environment, and a university that would provide me with opportunities to explore interests outside of the classroom. There are so many clubs and events around campus it is so easy to get involved and find something you are passionate about.

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

One organization I am a part of and love is Relay for Life. Our organization raises money for the American Cancer Society and supports a local hope lodge where cancer patients from out of town can stay for free while receiving treatment. The 12 hour event we put on it so incredible because it's not only tons of fun, but it's also a great way to remember and commemorate those who have suffered from cancer.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

My favorite class would be Science for Elementary Teachers. We learn about science concepts and experiments we would actually use as teachers. I love my professor and how hands on the class is.
