Meet the New Inside ‘Dores

Posted by on Friday, January 16, 2015 in Academic Life, Student Life, Vanderbilt Blogs.

No doubt, you’ve heard us highly recommend visiting campus and joining our mailing list to get to know us better. In addition, the Inside ‘Dores student blog is one of the best ways for prospective students to learn more about life at Vanderbilt. Covering everything from the local coffee shop scene to how to get involved with research as an undergraduate, student bloggers are opening up their doors to you (see what I did there).

This year, the Inside ‘Dores blog has welcomed nine new students to the ranks. Since the fall semester, they’ve been chronicling their time at Vanderbilt and providing insights you can get only from current students. If you haven’t been faithfully reading the blog, it’s not too late to catch up. Consider this post your introduction to the new student bloggers and the highlights of their work so far.
