Choosing to attend Vanderbilt was, quite honestly, one of the most wise decisions I have ever made in my short, 20 year life!!! Vanderbilt offers a wide variety of opportunities for all of it's students. From hosting a beautiful campus, to taking an active stance on student health, to making sure every students is represented, Vanderbilt offers not only a high-quality education, but also a well rounded program suited for any individual!!
