What is your favorite Vanderbilt tradition?

Reunion Weekend has always been one of my favorite Vanderbilt traditions. It has a special meaning now that I am a Vanderbilt alumnus, but it was a fun weekend all four years of my undergraduate career, too. There are special concerts, free t-shirts, reunion tailgates, and thousands of alumni visiting their old stomping grounds, so there is something going on the entire weekend. Go 'Dores!

I still need to learn how to cook... and I've always thought it'd be fun to bake as a hobby. Maybe one day...
