Why Vanderbilt

I love Vanderbilt because of the environment that is created for all of the students on campus. There is such a comfortable environment not only in commons for the freshmen, but all around campus. Also, at Vanderbilt, I have never been in a room with people from the same background or same academic interests as me. This allows me to have diverse and interesting conversations all round campus which again makes a more comfortable environment for all of the students.

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

I love being a floor representative because I get to plan events with my floor and with other floors in my house. By creating fun activities with all of my friends, I am able to create an environment that everyone on my floor is excited to return to at the end of each day.

 Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

My favorite class is ancient art history, despite the fact that I am an Economics and Mathematics major. I love how we take the knowledge beyond the textbook and go on field trips in order to learn more about what we are learning about in the classroom.

List some of your favorite books, movies, TV shows, or musical artists.

Harry potter, the office, parks and recreation.
