Why Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt provides countless opportunities for any student to grow personally and professionally. The community is unprecedented and I couldn't imagine myself anywhere else!

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

I love Vanderbilt Student Government because it allows me to explore a vast array of interests within one organization. The club offers opportunities for service, entrepreneurship, professional development, interpersonal relationships, and so much more!

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

Introduction to Philosophy was my favorite class because it opened my mind to a world of opportunities and convinced me to pick up a Philosophy minor. I had the best professor who helped me dive deep into my interest in ethical consumption. He took time to help me understand the concepts in a deeper way and even took time to send extra materials on my interests!

As a transfer student I couldn't imagine a more warm and welcoming environment to come into. Though I had my doubts and fears, Vanderbilt soon a place I could call home
