Why Vanderbilt

I chose Vanderbilt because I knew it was a place where students are not only some of the happiest in the nation but are also motivated in the classroom. When I visited 2 years ago, I saw how great the people were at the school as well as a beautiful campus surrounded by the vibrant city of Nashville. Immediately I knew I wanted to apply, and by the time I got here in the fall of 2018, I knew I made the right decision.

Describe a favorite activity or organization and why you like it

The Vanderbilt Club Lacrosse team has beenan incredible experience. I have met so many students from all different backgrounds and its great to get out and play a sport I've been playing since I was in 3rd grade.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

Although I'm an Engineering major, my favorite class at Vandy has been my American Studies course. The course covers sensations throughout 20th century America ranging from the OJ Simpson trial to the atomic bomb in WWII. Overall, American Studies helps keep me balanced and is an amazing class.
