What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have enjoyed each of my four years at Vanderbilt. The start of my career was rough, but thanks to the resources offered at Vanderbilt, I entered my second semester with refreshed energy and an improved outlook on my college career. I have been eager to continue challenging myself and my potential ever since. I applied my new life lessons and not only improved my academic performance but expanded my horizons. Sophomore year, I started a mentorship program through our pre-med society for upperclassmen to mentor underclassmen, and I joined a research team investigating PTSD therapies at the Veteran’s Hospital. In my Junior year, I advocated for required relationship education for student groups and organized on-campus facilitators to educate our peers. I also hosted an assembly at my high school for education and prevention of unhealthy relationships. Inspired by conquering my own failures, I found not only personal success, but also ways to educate and benefit others.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Vanderbilt University is an excellent academic school; however, due to the selection of “high-performing” students, the mindset of the general population is unhealthy. Not only do students spend all night finishing assignments daily, other nights they lose sleep by partying in large crowds. The university’s administration is actively trying to change the culture towards tolerance, acceptance, and healthy mindsets and habits, but the population can be disappointing still.

It is an extremely happy place. No student seems to be overly unhappy or stressed. A very positive environment that encourages student learning in a relaxing setting. The professors are always available and always maintain objectivity when faced with important issues.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Though it has its flaws, it's a greats school. It's a good place to balance work and play. The environment isn't competitive even though it's prestigious, which most people enjoy. Still, the food can get tiring and the academics can be emotionally and physically taxing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved the school when I visited earlier this week. There was a great atmosphere and my tour guide was amazing. Her name is Mary, I believe, and she was very patient, informative, and eager. She answered every and all questions and even allowed us to meet professors on campus. The campus appeared to be well kept up and very spread out.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While not very diverse, Vanderbilt is great concerning academics and career-oriented learning. I love that they encourage you to intern, volunteer, or study abroad to make sure that your intended career is something that you enjoy doing. The campus is great and is very close to downtown Nashville and (some) professors live in the dorms with you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you're white and financially well-off, you can have a great experience. Greek Life is huge and allows you to have so many friends and fun events that you can be oblivious to everything else going on. If that is not you, you see nearly everything. They don't often listen to students past what its necessary for them to act as if they do. Meaning, they'll throw a bone every now and then to make it seem like they listen while ignoring 20 other issues brought to them. Classes are difficult for no reason and the stress is normalized as if it is like this at all top colleges, but it simply isnt true.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that Vanderbilt has definitely earned its spot as one of the "Southern Ivy League" schools in regards to academics. The courses offered are indeed rigorous but worth it, and there is a large variety of classes (the History of Rock 'n Roll being a freshman favorite). The university is in a wonderful spot in Nashville, not too far from the major attractions, and Vanderbilt often provides opportunities for students to easily venture out and enjoy the city. Surprisingly (at least to me), volunteering is a huge part of campus life, and many students enjoy participating in the local charity events or helping out at local schools. Vanderbilt also does an amazing job making sure that everyone has a chance to participate in some of its more expensive events. Nevertheless, campus life is not all that it's made out to be. Although it is a "diverse" campus, there is not really a diverse lifestyle. It's easy for one to stick to groups where they are most comfortable and never venture out, and that is what most do. There is intense polarization on campus, although many don't openly acknowledge it. However, Vanderbilt is doing its best to change that, and there has been some improvement in the area. Overall, I believe that Vanderbilt University is indeed an amazing school, one that students should not automatically take off of their list simply because it is private, expensive, and predominately white.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Vanderbilt is uniquely located in the center of Nashville, which allows students the opportunity to get involved in the world outside of school in terms of internships, volunteering, and culture. The outside resources combined with the stellar faculty and the engaged student community is helpful for creating an environment of growth.
