Meet Dustin Lynn

Posted by on Friday, August 27, 2010 in Balance.

My hometown is Waynesboro, Tennessee (named, appropriately enough, after “Mad” Anthony Wayne, a US Army general known for his fiery personality) .

I am the counselor responsible for the areas of West Texas, Rio Grande Valley, and San Antonio.

In the office I serve as the CoRPs (Commodore Recruitment Program) Coordinator.

There are so many great eating destinations, but these three deserve a bite: Loveless Cafe (In true Southern style.), Ted’s Montana Grille (They serve bison meatloaf – ’nuff said!), and Rumba (For a casual yet swanky night out).

The best concert I’ve seen in Nashville was Dave Barnes at Cannery Ballroom. I am more of a theatre-goer, though, and Wicked at TPAC has been by far the best musical I’ve seen in Nashville!

On a Saturday you’re most likely to find me scouting out an obscure new restaurant to take friends or exploring Nashville.

Though not a coffee connoiseur, Fido is my favorite coffee shop in town. If you’re new to the coffee scene, try a “Milkbone.” Lots of tasty froth and cream take the edge off of a traditional cup of coffee. Frothy Monkey also deserves an honorable mention.

Southwest is the airline I most frequently fly in and out of Nashville.

My favorite spots on campus are Peabody Campus or Buttrick Hall.

The best dish at the Commons is the baked chicken with mustard sauce with sides of mashed potatoes and green beans – be still, my lil’ Southern heart.

TPAC (Tennessee Performing Arts Center) is a hidden gem in Nashville. Though popular throughout the Nashville community, lots of Vandy kids forget about this performing arts venue outside of the “Vanderbubble.” TPAC is definitely the best place in town to catch a concert or to see a Broadway play!

Tell me something else about Nashville: Nashville is the only city I know that offers small town hospitality with the excitement and opportunities of a major metropolitan area.

    Hello Mr. Lynn. My name is Emily Gulick and I am a senior at Robert E. Lee High School in Midland, TX. I have been informed that you are my admissions counselor and I would like to set up a meeting with you if possible. I will be in Nashville, TN to visit Vanderbilt. I visited before and I made the decision to apply Early Decision I because I love the university and everything about it! If you are not who I should set a meeting up with please let me know so that I can get that set up before I arrive. I have also sent you an e-mail with this information but have not received a reply yet. I found the blog and decided to post it here. Thank you in advance for your help!

    Who would I need to arrange a meeting with then while I am there? I have been to the basic information session and was hoping to have a one-on-one meeting with someone. I’ve e-mailed Dustin and need to know who I should forward that to. I’m really excited about the university and would like a better feel for it.

    Dustin will get back to you and let you know if he can meet. Otherwise, we always have an admissions counselor on-call every day. Ask for that individual. Also, consider signing up for ‘Dore for a Day to have a one-on-one experience with a current student.

    Thank you so much! I’ll sign up for ‘Dore for a Day and do that. Again, thank you and I will wait for him to reply.
