'Dore For A Day

Academics 

 

About

This half-day visit is designed for high school juniors, seniors, admitted and wait-listed students and offers you a chance to shadow a current Vanderbilt student. You will meet your Vanderbilt host at the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 1:00 p.m. CST and eat lunch together at an on-campus eatery (lunch included). With your host, you will attend a class and spend time together exploring campus. Your visit will conclude at 4:00 p.m. Although we try our best to match you with a host in your area of academic interest, we cannot guarantee this due to host availability.
