I chose Vanderbilt, because out of all the schools that I visited, it was the only school where I felt that double-majoring in music would be encouraged and where I could feel like a genuine part of the college community.
Describe a favorite activity or organization and why you like it.
My favorite organization on campus is Vanderbilt Off-Broadway. We produce, organize, and perform three full length musicals every year. I joined the organization freshman year and felt so welcomed and appreciated by the members of the organization that I decided to join the executive board.
Describe a favorite class and why you like it.
My favorite class that I have taken at Vanderbilt was "Organizational Behavior" taught by Professor Leddin. Her lectures were engaging and incredibly interesting. She facilitated countless in-class discussions that really helped apply the readings.
Describe your most memorable Nashville or off-campus experience.
My most memorable Nashville experience was going to the Nashville Predators Stanley Cup Playoff game on the last day of the semester with my father, who gifted me the tickets as an end of the semester surprise.
