Why Vanderbilt

Financial aid drew me in initially but ended up falling in love with the school.

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

I enjoy being a part of The Melodores and being able to pursue music alongside my business studies.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

My favorite class at Vanderbilt was American Sociology of Dance.  In this class we'd take a trip to Alumni Hall every week and actually do one of the dances we had been learning in class.

Describe your experience becoming a part of the Vanderbilt community.

I had concerns about being a transfer and being on the outside looking in but was immediately embraced by the Vanderbilt community.
