Why Vanderbilt

My indecisiveness led me to Vanderbilt. I knew that no matter what I chose to study that I would be in the right hands. Vanderbilt epitomizes an all around work hard play hard mentality.

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

Vanderbilt Students Volunteer for Science is one of my favorite organizations here at Vandy because it gives me an opportunity to help kids get interested in pursuing a STEM career by teaching them fun and interactive science lessons.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

My favorite class so far has been Neuroscience 2201. I love to learn about the complexity of the brain and nervous system.

Describe your experience becoming a part of the Vanderbilt community.

For some people acclimating to the community is a long process. For me I felt apart of the community as soon as I set foot on campus due to the excitement that the north house move crew exerted towards me and my family. That, along with my visions group and my friends in North House, is what made Vanderbilt feel like home.
