Why Vanderbilt

I chose Vanderbilt because it offered the perfect balance of work hard, play hard. At Vandy, I am able to pursue many different extracurricular activities while maintaining my academics and being surrounded by peers who value the same.

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

My favorite organization that I’m involved with is the Black Student Organization (BSA). Over the course of my time at Vandy, I’ve served as both Freshman Representative and Treasure which gave me the opportunity to get to know a lot of different students and facilitate programming that better served them.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

My favorite class that I’ve taken at Vandy was Constitutional Law with Dr. Carrie Russell. As an aspiring lawyer, the class was a great way to get acclimated to the learning style and expectations of law school. Dr. Russell was amazing as well, and she made the class fun.

Describe your most memorable Nashville or off-campus experience.

My most memorable off-campus experience is traveling with other students to multiple cities in Alabama and New Orleans on the Black Cultural Center Immersion Excursion trip. It was an exciting way to learn about African American history.
