Student Voice. To me, student voice is critical in creating a thriving and united campus. We have over 500 student organizations, which is a testament to how students can create an organization to amplify their voice. Vanderbilt is dedicated to giving you the tools to make any idea a reality. All you need is the idea.
List a few of your activities. Describe a favorite activity/organization and why you like it.
Several organizations that I am a part of include the Honor Council, Vanderbilt Programming Board's The VenUe Committee, and the Vanderbilt Chabad Jewish Student Group. I really enjoy engagement with Chabad because I feel that I gain a stronger connection with my spirituality. The Chabad house, through the wonderful and dedicated work of Rabbi Shlomo and his wife, Nechama, is the epitome of a home away from home.
Describe a favorite class and why you like it.
When you reach out to your professor, you show motivation; When your professor reaches out to you, they show dedication. Back then, I was taking a course titled, "HOD 1300: Small Group Behavior," when I received an email from my professor asking to meet with me. When we met, she began to give me feedback on how I could more effectively lead small groups and when I asked if she met with all students, she replied that she saw how motivated I was. In response, she showed me how dedicated she was in helping me grow, both as a student and as a leader.
