For my social studies methods class, our final project is to create a geodiary about our community and it got me thinking about how my physical community broadened significantly after I got my car this year. So, I realized that this could be an important blog post for prospective Vanderbilt students: do you bring a car to Vandy or not? I’ve boiled all of my brainstorming down to a list of pros and cons:
Overall, I’m glad that I brought my car to Vanderbilt and love the freedom it gives me to decide where I go and exactly how much time I spend in the Vanderbubble (which is probably why my list of pros outweighs the cons). However, I also had the added pressure of my family living in Switzerland to back my decision. Since they’re abroad, I have no family car to bring me up north at the end of the semester or a way to get to work during that time. So, I totally understand people who want to tough it out for a few years and simply hitch rides. :)
…Until next time!
