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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that Vanderbilt is the perfect school for me to go to. The campus is great and everything is nearby. However, since the school is almost downtown the availability for parking isn’t so swell because there is a lot of traffic during the rush hour and at the hospital. Other than that, I can’t wait to become a Commodore!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Vanderbilt is a great school for all aspects. There is a variety of extra curricular activities that anyone would like, from sports to greek life to arts to religious groups. The only downside of Vandy is that the academics are very challenging and you may find yourself falling behind if you're not on top of your work.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I LOVE Vanderbilt University. It's been my dream school every since 5th grade, so I truly mean it when I say that attending school here is a dream come true. I love how diverse the student body is because it's allowed me to broaden my own horizons and see a variety of viewpoints from a different perspective. Vanderbilt has so many opportunities to get involved and really makes an effort to cater to all types of diverse populations. I can't imagine being this happy at any other school!
