Why Vanderbilt?

I really think there's something to be said for students who actively try to recruit more students for their universities.  When I visited, nearly every person I met told me I just had to come to Vandy.  That enthusiasm, plus the perfect balance of academics and activities is why I chose Vanderbilt.

List a few of your activities. Describe a favorite activity/organization and why you like it.

Zeta Tau Alpha, Vanderbody, NAVS.  My favorite is Vanderbody because unlike other health clubs, the goal isn't to lose weight; the goal is to be healthy and happy throughout your entire Vanderbilt experience and beyond.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

I like my First Year Writing Seminar over American Poetry because it challenged me to read between the lines and formulate my own opinions on what the author was saying in the context of the authors moment.

Describe your experience becoming a part of the Vanderbilt community.

The way commons is set up immediately immerses you in all the opportunities available to you at Vanderbilt
