Visit Vanderbilt this Fall

Posted by on Monday, September 23, 2019 in Vandy Bloggers, Visit Vanderbilt.

Whether you’re just starting your college search or deciding where you want to apply, fall is a great time for a college visit. At Vanderbilt we offer several visit options during the fall that can help you learn more about life on campus:

  • Information session and campus tour. This one-hour presentation and 90-minute tour is a perfect place to start getting to know Vanderbilt and our admissions process.  You’ll learn about academics, campus life, financial aid, life in Music City, how we evaluate applications, and more. After the info session, a student tour guide will lead you on a walk through some of Vanderbilt’s 330-acre campus, including a visit to The Martha Rivers Ingram Commons and a look inside a residence hall room.
  • ‘Dore for a Day. This half-day visit program lets you shadow a current student in order to give you an inside look at what it’s like to be a Commodore. You’ll meet a student host at the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and the two of you share lunch (included in the program) at one of campus’s many dining spots. Then it’s off to a class and hanging out on campus before the program concludes. ‘Dore for a Day is designed specifically for high school juniors and seniors (and admitted and wait listed students in the spring). We also offer Global ‘Dore for a Day, designed for international prospective students.
  • Visiting Class. Want a deeper look into Vanderbilt academics? Maybe you’d like to check out a course in your prospective major or see what a college seminar is like. Whatever your academic interests, you can visit a class in any of Vanderbilt’s four undergraduate colleges. Some of the courses on offer this fall include Arts of East Asia, Neurochemistry, Mass Media and American Politics, Developmental Psychology, Introductory Biomechanics, and more. See the full list for each college on our class visits page.
  • The Vanderbilt Virtual Tour. If you can’t fit a campus visit into your plans, you can still make it for a virtual tour. With student tour guides, photos, videos, and more, this interactive virtual tour is the next best thing to being here.

As you’re making your plans to visit, don’t forget to leave some time to explore our hometown, Nashville, which has been named one of the 15 Best Cities in the United States by Travel + Leisure, a top 10 American City for Family-Friendly Travel by Forbes, and #1 Best Leisure Destination in the United States by Global Traveler.
