    Freshmen can participate in the interdorm competitions, representing their house and making great friends along the way. There are also lots of great concerts and sports teams.

    Although Nashville is considered the home of country music, there is much more to offer than a Brad Paisley concert. Many artists like J. Cole come through Nashville monthly either on tours or other work in music city. There is also a live theater near campus that holds musicals and even a symphony- all at a discounted price for students. Many restaurants are within walking distance of campus and downtown Nashville is but a 10 minute bus ride away. On campus, clubs and organizations host a number of different activities for students to participate in from cultural showcases to acapella performances to live bands. Have I mentioned that the Melodores, the first collegiate group to ever win the Sing Off, are Vandy students?

    Nashville is music city, so there is plenty to do outside of campus. There are also plenty of organizations and events on campus to get into.

    Definitely do the Nashville touristy things if you have never been. Visit the various areas of nashville as well. Inside the campus: Fraternity parties are a must. Extracurricular Activities. Vanderbilt football and basketball and baseball games. Ummmmm typical college-lifestyle stuff. Walk around campus, do homework outside in the grass. Play frisbee. Etc. etc. Check out the Centennial Park just across the street from campus.

    Nashville has a great student life to offer. Although, Nashville isn't a very big city (#25 in the USA), it does have a big city feel in a smaller city. We have the Tennessee Titans, Nashville Predators, VU Commodores, and not to mention...it's MUSIC CITY, USA!!! It's very likely that you'll spot Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, or Nicole Kidman at the local Starbucks. Also, actors from the show Nashville are frequently seen just hanging around town as well.

    There is always Frat Row, but there is soooo much more to campus than greek life. Vanderbilt has literally hundreds of studnet organizations that cover all of your interests - religious to political, cultural to major specific, service based to just for the arts. Speaking of the arts, there is always a performing-arts show coming up on campus. Vanderbilt has a ridiculous number of A-Capella groups, including the world-famous Melodores, tons of multicultural dance groups, and even a juggling team! If you find time to go do something fun, don't worry- there will always be something to do.
