Notes on the Thanksgiving Holiday

Posted by on Wednesday, November 27, 2013 in General Information, Vanderbilt Blogs.

What are you thankful for this year? Tell us with the hashtag #VUThankful.

As Thanksgiving approaches and I reflect on the many things for which I am thankful, near the top of my list this year is the fact that I am a part of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Vanderbilt community. This year my wife and I are hosting Thanksgiving for my extended family at our house, and on my list of holiday to-do’s is to bring my grandmother to campus to show her where I work.  (Other items on my Thanksgiving to-do list include eating massive portions of my grandmother’s pecan pie and watching “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” with my little boys.)

As we at the Office of Undergraduate Admissions prepare for the Thanksgiving break, we want to insure that you have the most timely information regarding our office hours and schedules. See the information below for details.

From all of us in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, we wish you a restful, relaxing break and look forward to speaking with you when we return!
