I chose Vanderbilt because it had the best of both worlds in terms of the academic and social realms. The average Vanderbilt student is very intelligent, but also is interested in getting to know other students and getinvolved!
Describe a favorite activity or organization and why you like it.
One of my favorite organizations that I am a part of (besides tour guides and 'Dore for a day) is the Hillel boards. I am fully comfortable and feel secure celebrating my religion at Vanderbilt and I love the people and food at Hillel.
Describe a favorite class and why you like it.
So far my favorite class has been the history of country music. Not only was it right up my alley, but I learned so much information that I would havenever learned if I had not taken the class.
Describe your most memorable Nashville or off-campus experience.
There was a charity concert arranged by 20+ famous country artists performed in Nashville my freshman year and tickets were so cheap. One of my friends and I were able to see them perform and it was amazing!
