Why Vanderbilt

I love the fact that Vanderbilt does not have a competitive nature at all. The environment is extremely collaborative and everyone is helping each other in order to succeed. I also really admire that I am able to get the academic rigor that I want, but I also get the experience of going to a school in the SEC and being able to have a fun time.

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

My favorite organization is Vanderbilt Student Government because of the impact that I'm able to make on campus. I enjoy working with other member to constantly improve Vanderbilt's campus and it is extremely rewarding when you can see all of the efforts you've made improve the community. I also really love how everyone in VSG is from various backgrounds and different communities on campus, that way I'm able to learn about other cultures as well as meet people that I may not have had the opportunity to meet otherwise.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

My favorite class so far definitely has to be my Civil Engineering module. I was able to design, build, and test my own wind turbine, which is something I could never have imagined I would be doing. I had professor Adam for this course and his passion and love for the subject was so inspiring and very contagious!

Describe your most memorable Nashville or off-campus experience.

One weekend, my friends and I decided to go on a small shopping spree at Green Hills Mall. It was really nice to just get away from campus for a few hours and have a good time with my friends.
