Why Vanderbilt

After my visit sophomore year, no other University could capture my attention quite like Vandy could. I felt like why not Vanderbilt. They offered everything I could hope for in a college and more.

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

One of my favorite orgs is VPAWS because I get to go play with puppies to de stress. I also get to do service work to help these dogs in need as well.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

One of my favorite classes was theories of the body. I loved this class because I got to challenge my own conceptualizations about the body and analyze societies stigmas surrounding normal bodies and functions.

Describe your most memorable Nashville or off-campus experience.

My most memorable Nashville/ off-campus experience would have to be going to dinner at 5th and Taylor and then the Lana Del Rey concert with my mom.
