Why Vanderbilt?

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.
