Black & Gold Days
Black & Gold Days is a half-day visit program for high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors and their families. Over the course of the day, visitors will attend sessions on preparing for college, selective admissions, and the financial aid process. They will also participate in a panel discussion with faculty and current students, and take a student-led walking tour of Vanderbilt's 330-acre, park-like campus.
Black & Gold Days is the perfect way to begin the college search process!
