Why Vanderbilt
I had a great experience visiting campus and getting to know some of the professors at Blair. Even through our first meeting, I felt that the faculty really wanted students to succeed and that Vanderbilt wasn’t creating a competitive environment between their students.

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

My involvement in Vanderbilt Off-Broadway gives me so much joy. It’s a student run organization that produces three full run musicals throughout the year. There are great leaders within the group, and this activity has fostered many of my friendships at Vanderbilt.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

My Music as a Global Culture class is very interesting. We learn about the interconnectedness of music throughout the world, to further our own understanding of the borrowing with Classical music. I enjoy how we’ve been able to work outside of the classroom and explore different musical festivals and reach out to artists in Nashville.

Describe your most memorable Nashville/off-campus experience.

On a particularly rainy day of Fall Break, my friends and I found a coffee shop in East Nashville completely dedicated to board games and spent the entire day there. We tried a bunch of games and it was such a great thing to do on a lazy day of break.
