Why Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt has such a great balance between schoolwork and campus involvement! The professors here are so helpful and knowledgeable in their fields, and there are so many opportunities to broaden your horizons through different student orgs.

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

I love Vanderbilt Student Volunteers for Science (VSVS). Every week my team goes to a local elementary school and teaches an exciting science experiment to the students. The kids love it and we do as well!

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

My favorite class was Neurobiology of Behavior. In the class, we looked at different unique organisms, and how they are biologically adapted to perform certain functions; for example, how bats echolocate.

Describe your experience becoming a part of the Vanderbilt community.

In my three years at Vanderbilt, I feel like I have become a true member of the Vanderbilt community. From the first-year Commons experience, to my pre-med journey, to the various clubs and organizations I am involved in, I have made such a varied and diverse group of friends
