My favorite part of Vanderbilt is the culture of the student body. The community provides an extremely collaborative environment where students help each other rather than trying to get ahead of each other. I really wanted to stay in the south while going to a school with rigorous academics and Vanderbilt was the perfect fit for me!
Describe a favorite activity/organization and why you like it.
My favorite activity so far has been the Medlife Spring break service learning trip. I got the opportunity to go to Peru for the first time and help to deliver medical services and development projects to families in need. It was a great experience as I had the opportunity to meaningfully contribute to disadvantaged families and to connect with other students from all over the US with the same service-mindset.
Describe a favorite class and why you like it.
My favorite class so far was the Civil Engineering module. Throughout the module, we designed wind turbine blades to maximize the amount of captured energy. This class provided a perfect balance of a collaborative hands-on experience and engineering theory and altogether was a very fun class.
