Hanging out with Vanderbilt Students, Academics Edition

Posted by on Tuesday, October 20, 2015 in Balance, Freshman Commons, General Information, Living on Campus.

If you’re a high school student in the midst of the college search and application process, you’re probably getting tons of information directly from colleges. You likely get lots of emails and beautifully designed brochures (we work hard on those!). You may have traveling admissions counselors visiting your school. And, of course, you’re definitely visiting college web sites and reading blogs — at this very moment, in fact.

These are all great resources (if I do say so myself) that can be vital to helping you in the college admissions process. But sometimes you just want to hear directly from students about their college experience. What’s it like to live on the campus, go to classes, be involved in campus organizations, and live the life of a student at that particular school.

We know it’s important for you to hear directly from students, and that’s the reason we offer the Inside ‘Dores student blog, the contact a student page on our site, and the ‘Dore for a Day program, among other opportunities to hear from VU students.

We now have a new way for you to hear directly from students about their experience at Vanderbilt: google hangouts. These are video conference calls with current students who can talk about their lives as Commodores. Admissions counselor Annalise Miyashiro recently sat down for a conversation with four current students about academics at Vanderbilt, and you can watch this hangout below or on the Vanderbilt YouTube account. Watch for more upcoming hangouts with students, and let us know if you have questions or topics you’d like to see in the future.
