My Junior Year Living Experience
“I have 9 roommates, 5 of which are guys.”
Most students at other campuses are very surprised to hear the statement above but at Vanderbilt, this is a unique living option for sophomores, juniors, and seniors. I live in a Mayfield, which is a small lodge with 2 floors, 1 kitchen, and a common space.
Living in a Mayfield is not all fun and games; it is a beneficial learning experience. Each of the 20 lodges is required to complete a yearlong project of your choice. Ours is focused on bridging the gap between campus and health professions.
This has been a great opportunity so far to live in a homey situation (contrasting from the dorms I live in the past two years), meet new people, and work on a fulfilling project.
Another great perk is that each of us has our own room. Furniture is provided but I opted for a bigger bed through BlackStar.
Living in the Mayfield has thus far been a rewarding and fun experience. Check it out if you want to live somewhere different than the traditional dorm or off-campus apartment. It is awesome that Vanderbilt offers this unique living experience, and I would recommend it to all!
