The people and community here is one full of passion, care, integrity, kindness, and enthusiasm that can make any person feel right at home.

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

I love being involved in Vanderbilt Student Government. As a member of this organization, I get to work with administrators as well as other students on creating new initiatives that directly impact and assist the student body overall. The passionate people I get to work with, who are committed to making this school as amazing as possible for each and every student, make the organization vibrant and constantly push me to be innovative.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

I took a class called Law, Politics, and Justice in the spring of my freshmen year with Professor Russell, the director of the Political Science department. We spent each class discussing a court case or political issue that was highly contested, and how we believed the concept of justice as we perceived it applied to those situations. She ran it very similarly to a first year law school class, and the class is one of the resons I am now very strongly considering law school!
