Much of Vandy's social life is determined by the freshman campus, the Commons. This community is separate from the rest of the campus, with its own dining hall, athletic facility, and dorms. When I arrived as a freshman, I found the Commons to be an extremely welcoming environment. Everyone is open to making friends and meeting new people. My best friends at Vanderbilt are people that I lived with my freshman year. The most popular student groups on campus are Greek organizations. About 50% of women and 35% of men are affiliated. Fraternities host regular bar nights on Tuesdays and Thursdays and house parties on the weekend, so they determine much of the social calendar at Vandy. In addition to going out, fraternities and sororities also host philanthropic events, sports activities, and performances regularly. On any given week, there might be anywhere from 5 to 10 different Greek events occurring on campus. I'm in Pi Beta Phi, a Panhellenic sorority. Every semester, we host 3 parties, 2 philanthropic events, and 3 values seminars. All students enjoy attending sporting events. In the past few years, Vanderbilt has begun a big push to encourage student attendance at football and basketball games. Admission has always been free, but now the administration offers additional incentives for students to come - free food, prize giveaways, and games. Basketball games are more popular, probably because our basketball team is stronger than our football team. Beyond the Greek scene and sports, Vanderbilt hosts a lot of programming to engage students. There are lots of theater groups, guest speakers, and a cappella groups.

There are so many organizations for students to join. Numerous clubs, fraternities and sororities, school organizations such as the newspaper or yearbook, religious organizations and more. Students tend to be friendly and are open to meeting new people. Sport games are always fun and there is a lot of school spirit if you want to become involved. Weekends often feature theater shows, movie nights, off-campus activities featured through Vandy, and fraternity parties. There is an endless amount of options, it is a very rare occurrence to be bored while at school.

Recently, we were ranked as having the number one Greek life in America. 40% of the students participate in the Greek system. Even for those who don't, there is plenty to do. Go to concerts, walk in Centennial Park, throw a frisbee, join a gaming club, go to a game, go on an Outdoor Rec rafting trip. If you drink, go out to the clubs during the week and hit the frats on the weekend. If you don't, like me, hang out with friends or find other things downtown that don't involve drinking. Hallmates become best friends and eat together, play sports together, take classes together, and sometimes end up living near each other all four years.

David

The cultural clubs are the most popular. However, Model United Nations, Vanderbilt Student Government, and several others are very popular. I belong to the Asian American Student Association, MUN, VSG, and many other groups and they are all full of people. Athletic events such as basketball and baseball are popular-ish. Football is still not as popular as it should. It's hard to find great things to do if you don't drink, and spending time at fraternities is a big part of social life.

It is hard to say what the most popular student organization on campus are simply because there are so many. Greek life definitely has the highest number of students involved, but most of these students are also involved in other activities as well. Some of the activities that people I know are involved include: Vandy Spoken word, Vanderbilt Student Government, Reformed University Fellowship, Navigators, Interfaith Council, Hillel Jewish Center, Manna, Big Brothers and Sisters, dancing and singing groups, College Republicans and Democrats, Vanderbilt Programming Board, and so many more. The organizations are there for students to get involved in. At the very beginning of your freshman year there will be a student organizations fair that will begin to introduce you to the huge number of organizations on campus and how you can get involved in them. Of course student activities also feature a broad range of things as well. For one, your in Nashville, so you have the whole city to explore. Student Government runs a downtown shuttle that can help you get to other parts of the city and your Commodore card will give you access to the Nashville bus system to get you just about anywhere in the city. On campus there are always activities going on at the fraternities and you have college athletics. Football and basketball games are always great activities to attend with your friends. Then you have performance that are being put on by Vanderbilt students including concerts and plays of every kind. There will even be activities in your dorm so you can get to know the community that you are becoming a part of for the next four years. You definitely will never be at a loss of things to do at Vanderbilt.

The social life at Vanderbilt is great. There's always something going on around Campus. Any interest there's a club for it. Depending on your floor your door may be open or not. Most people leave their door unlocked though, so kids popping in and out of rooms is common. There is a hook up culture and you'll have to accept that if you come. Very few people stay in long relationships. Grad school is for that! Commodore Quake and Rites of Spring are our huge music festivals always selling out. Greek Life is big for those who participate in it. Weekends start on Thursday with the students going going downtown to bars/clubs, Friday and Saturdays are frats that are usually themed. Tuesdays are bar night. Saturday night you can find a lot of activities that dont involve drinking whether it's on campus or off.

most popular organizations are the greek ones. students leave their doors open all the time-- we're incredibly social. athletic events draw the biggest crowds, especially basketball. there's always somewhere to go out and party if you know where to look (generally the frat houses). people party up to 5 nights a week. downtown nashville is a great place to go off campus; there are lots of clubs and nightspots there if you're 18+ or 21+.

Tristan

There are Greek Life members - a lot of them! There are athletes, sometimes a part of Greek life also (more common with girls than guys). Christians are all over the place, and they love to create clubs and groups (not meant to isolate non-Christians but inadvertenly contradicting their central message). There are a million clubs to join, and there are a few students who may or may not be a member of all of them. I have not found a club or group worth talking about yet; I have been a student here for three years. Students like to go to athletic events, but mostly so that they can pre-game the event and leave early once their buzz wears off to drink some more. You are lucky if you find someone worth dating that is interested in a serious relationship. These people exist, but they seem to be hiding. I met my closest friends through Squirrel Camp, and I made more friends through people those friends introduced me to. If I'm awake at 2am on a Tuesday, I could be out partying, up late studying, or just unable to fall asleep. Dressing up for football games is one tradition at Vandy. Hazing is another tradition, but only the boys really know what goes on. People can be found partying every single night of the week. Sunday nights are rare, but not unheard of. If you don't have work (or even if you do) you are tempted by several groups of people to go out. Greek Like is very important, but only to those who are a part of it. Last weekend, I stayed up until 7am on Thursday drinking with a friend, stayed in Friday with a friend, stayed in Saturday with another friend and caught up on work on Sunday. On a Saturday night, if you do not want to drink, find the Christian kids and they will tell you what's going on in sober world. Off-campus, the bars are all great, the concert venues are great, the restauarants are great - nashville is just great! Students DO leave their doors open, but it is not recommended. It's not that it's likely that someone will steal anything, but it happens. There are surveillance cameras.

Rachel

Greek life is very popular on campus. Frat parties make up the main social life, and half of the girls are in sororities. I have left my door open in all of my dorms fairly regularly. Athletic events are incredibly popular - in spite of our losing tradition. At 2am on a Tuesday, I could either be studying or going out. Either is highly possible.

Ryan

Biggest groups: Greek life, Alternative Spring Break, religious life (CRU, RUF, Hillel...), Vanderbilt Student Government (though it's pretty lame), Vandy Fanatics (HUGE sports fans association) Dorm doors freshmen year are always left open, so there's always someone to hang out with--this disappears after freshmen year, so make sure you have good friends to live with and a solid network of other rooms to go over to in place! There's plenty to do, partying or otherwise. People party Thursday nights off campus (downtown bars, with the cool ones changing each year), Friday and Saturday nights at fraternity parties and throughout the week at informal frat gatherings, either at their on-campus houses or unofficial off-campus houses. Outside of partying, there are lots of cultural events and speakers, some really outstanding and some pretty bad. They're pretty well-publicized, but Vandy students tend to be apathetic so it's no telling if you'll be able to rouse friends to go with you or not. The Rec Center is another place people spend a lot of time, working out or playing intramurals, and students usually "run the loop" or the perimeter of campus. There are places just off campus where you'll see students all the time. On 21st Avenue are boutiques, cafes and the hugely popular Pancake Pantry, and on Elliston, just north of campus, are vintage shops, restaurants, a tanning salon... and just west of campus is a giant park and many more restaurants. A lot of local restaurants are "on the Card," which means your student ID can be swiped there, using your meal plan money to eat. Popular places are Bread & Co, a very expensive sandwich/salad cafe were Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban like to eat, Provence Cafe, a similar place on campus in one of the libraries, pizza joints and Chili's, right across from the giant upperclass apartment-style dorms and Greek Row, so a popular place for margaritas and fried mozzarella, etc.

Ainsley

Vanderbilt is a party school, plain and simple. There are lot of parties on friday and saturday and most people are going to them at least some of the time. Otherwise students at vanderbilt will watch movies or talk with their friends. There are great clubs at vanderbilt for almost anything you might be interested in. If there is no club, then you can always create one. There are great guest apeakers on campus but a lot of people who want to go cannot because schedules are often very tight.

Jim

Greek life followed by community service followed by religious groups are the most popular on campus. The fourth is club sports. I'm primarily involved with my fraternity which is unique because it is a mix of northern and southerners. Athletic events are popular (men's basketball, football, and baseball in that order for attendance). I don't know who goes to guest speakers and girls like theater. Dating is for GDI's, frats and sororities are all about hooking up. I met my closest friends in greek life. If you're awake at 2 am on Tuesday you're either studying on adderall for a test, drinking on 21st avenue, or getting high. In the fall tailgating and rush are huge, in the spring day drinking and Rites of Spring (three day music fest) are awesome. Fraternities and sororities dominate everything from social life to student government. Last weekend I went to frat and sorority parties. On saturday you could get high. Off campus I go to bars, house parties, and decent food (compared with on campus).

Beth

There isnt really a dating scene. There are three ways of getting into a relationship. 1. You get really drunk and hook up with someone downtown or at a frat and maybe get lucky that they are attractive and nice. 2. you become friends with someone because you live on the floor above them or down the hall and then get drunk and hook up and start dating 3. a girl goes to the same frat all the time and becomes friends with the guys and then starts dating one, or usually many, of them (this is not a good idea, despite what girls may think guys do talk and you can be labeled the frat slut)

andrea

atheltic events are pretty popular but guest speakers and theater not so much. dating is hard because the guys here are different from home and alot less agressive which could be a good thing. my closest friends either swim with me or are on my hall. im all about convenience and how often i see people has a lot to do with who i hang out with. greek life is pretty important. i like to go to concerts and walk around down town and see all the hidden parts of nashville.

Lauren

Football games create particular excitement on campus. Students take dates to the game, girls wear sundresses, and boys wear ties. Tailgating festivities begin early in the morning. Fraternities blast music on their porches, and hand out free beer to anyone who comes. Most evening activities involve drinking—either directly or indirectly, as they are primarily at fraternities and bars. It is rare to meet someone who doesn't drink. Vandy’s dating scene is a bit schizophrenic. Freshman and sophomore year consist of racking up on the random hookups…but suddenly junior year, it seems as though everyone is in a relationship. Rites of Spring is a weekend-long music festival on Vandy’s lawns. The event inspires all-day tailgating on fraternity porches, and a much needed break from academic stress. Fraternity formals go all out. Most formals take place in Florida, and include nice hotels, fancy restaurants, and of course partying at the beach. --Exactly what you would expect from a Vandy kids.

Jo

The most popular groups on campus are sororities and fraternities. I am in a sorority. Students do not leave their doors open. Athletic events are common. I met my closest friends by joining a sorority. Rites of Spring is a huge tradition in the spring semeseter. People party around 3 nights a week. I eat or shop off campus.

Jacqueline

Greek life is the most popular. I'm involved with AKPsi the professional business fraternity. It has been a great experience to combine academics with social activities and meet some new people. A lot of students leave their dorms open; it's a huge pet peeve of mine because I know a lot of people have gotten stuff stolen. Athletic events are really popular - particularly football, basketball and baseball. I don't really know much about gues speakers and the theater but I know that they do a good job of adveritising for those events through email. Vandy people date, but it is rare. Most people get drunk on the weekends and hookup. I met my closet friends freshman year in my dorm and through my sorority. If i'm awake, i'm probably studying or coming back from the bar. Homecoming is a tradition. Rites of spring is a good one. Most people party more than me. I try to go out on the weekends though. Fraternities are really important to certain people. Last weekend I went out of town to visit a friend, but I know that my friends went to our sorority formal. Me and my best friend stay in a lot and watch nip/tuck and call people. I babysit, go out to dinner, shop, etc...

Kendall

Greek life is huge. If you are apart of it you love it , if not , you hate it. the frats throw insane parties and go all out on decorations. if you dont like to drink, then dont come and dont judge.... pretty much there is something to do every night if you want to go out.... biggest nights are tuesday thursday friday and sat.... time is split between bars, frats, and suite pregames that turn into parties

Kendall

If I'm awake at 2 am on a Tuesday, it's because I have a paper due that week, probably the next day. Or, if I dont have class until the afternoon and I dont have that much work (rare scenario), I might be at a party until around that time. That would be the only time I went out partying during that week. The weekend is another story... and some weekends I stay in and study. it all depends on how much work I have.

Lindsey

I think that some of the most popular organizations on campus are the Greek groups. The Greek life on this campus is very evident in the philanthropies, rows of houses, and t-shirts that can been seen all over campus. Athletic events are very popular and even though are teams have their "trying moments", the students are still very supportive and ready to cheer on the football and basketball teams. On weekend nights, there are usually a lot of student shows on campus ranging from Juggleville performing arts shows to choir concerts and plays. I've been to many productions throughout my time here and have yet to be disappointed with a show.

Marshall

Probably the most popular groups and organizations on campus would be Greek Life but also philanthropy. The Manna Project has become extremely popular as has Vanderbuddies, VSVS, and Best Buddies--all helping mankind. In general, students do not leave their doors open unless they live in Kissam as a freshmen. I met my closest friends from being on my hall freshmen year, meeting on a plane back to school, and through VUcept. Fraternities and sororities are pretty important at Vanderbilt although they are rarely taken seriously (at least by the girls). Although a smaller percentage of men join fraternities than women who join sororities, if you want to party and be social, it's necessary to join a fraternity. For girls, sororities can SEEM extremely important and you can meet a lot of good friends through a sorority but it's definitely possible to have a great social life without it although you may feel left out sometimes especially during rush, little/big reveals, and Greek Life events.

Michelle

The football games and the men's bball games are fairly well attended. The dating scene is a little weird like most college campuses because it all starts with the "hanging out and hooking up" thing. But after that I feel like more people at vandy date than at other top schools. Work hard, play hard. People here like to party. People go to the frats as freshmen and then start to go to towers parties and out to bars afterwards. Most people who aren't drinking on Sat are just hanging out with friends, watching movies or online shopping.

Colleen

Greek. There are always parties on campus that makes me not ever want to spend a weekend away as if I'll miss something.

Becca

Greek life is pretty big, frats and sororities are a large part of the social scene here.

Casey

Greek Life is definitely very important here. Sports events sometimes take a back seat to partying, but for many students here they are priority. I feel like Guest Speakers are not very popular, but not because they are speakers, because people never know about it. When important people come to Vanderbilt it is SOO under-publicized. Right now, my closest friends are either girls who lived on my freshman year hall or ones from my sorority, with a sprinkling of some from my dance team. The dating scene is interesting here. If you are a semi-attractive boy with social skills you have it made. Girls will throw themselves at you. There are some very aggressive girls at Vanderbilt, it's almost pathetic how badly they want husbands. Most people end up dating someone from the frat they hangout at, otherwise its a mix of meeting people through classes, mutual friends, or activities. If it's Tuesday night and I'm up at 2am I'm either studying or wasted.

Jane

ASB definitely has a alrge presence on campus and has a great reputation. VSVS is a very large organization as well. In underclassmen dorms people do leave their doors open. My closest friends lived nextdoor to me freshman year, were roomates, or in my sorority. People party almost every day of the week. Frats/sororities are important in that they open the door to meeting new people and participating in greek oriented events. Last weekend I went to Demonbreun and downtown to Broadway. On Sat nights you can go to concerts, movies, mall, etc.

John

Greek Life is pretty big and a lot of people do it, but it isn't a necessity. You can do a ton of stuff around Nashville if you aren't a fan of parties.

Emma

I think I am the only non-drinker at Vanderbilt. I sometimes go to parties, but it's not really that fun to be groped by some drunk frat guy while you're sober. The best thing for a girl to do if she wants to dance without being pawed is to go to the gay bars on Church Street with some friends - they always have very fun vibes, great dancing, and men who do not want to touch you!

Suzanne

Depending on who you talk to, the most popular organizations will definitely change. I think their are many diverse groups that have large notoriority. One of the bigger groups on the campus, however, are definitely the greek organizations. This spring, I pledged a sorority and am now a member of Delta Delta Delta. Greek organizations by no means dominate Vanderbilt culture or social life, but they are definitely a main asset on campus because they run so many of the philantrophy and campaign events benefitting all types of organizations nation-wide. Students in the dorms leave their doors open at different times. I was very surprised first semester at how quiet the dorms can be and that you can actually get work done in your room. I think that dorm life definitely differs from other schools because of the unisex floor set-up. During the week, people are typically very busy with work and are coming and going. Some people have their doors open so you may walk over to a friends room for a snack, to hang out, or to say hello admidst study sessions. During the weekend, the dorm takes on a much different feeling. Usually starting thursday night, the dorms become much livelier and people are out and about getting ready to go out or to go eat. During the week days you may find people going to bed at very early hours (which is something I think is unique about Vanderbilt, because students actually sleep!) but on the weekends people may be up to all hours of the night. Athletic events are very popular. In the fall, football is a huge events and especially for tailgates on saturday which are a special event to get dressed up and go to the game. During the winter, basketball season becomes pretty big and normally people, especially the boys, get pretty hyped up about the events. Although most students do not go to as many as they should, every week there are dozens of guest speakers from all over the country. The dating scene at Vanderbilt is very limited. Vanderbilt has the traditional hook-up culture in which most people do not start seriously dating until junior year. Most students are so busy they do not have time for serious relationships, but it also takes away from that hospitible charm because people do not have to make as much effort and take people on dates. I was very lucky freshman year and met most of my closest friends on my hall. We had a tight knit group of about 10 girls who did everything together. Although I am still close with them, things are definitely changed since rush as getting into a sorority breaks up your group of friends because people pledge different houses. However, I am still best friends with the girl I met the first week of school. I normally go to bed early during the week or whenever I finish my work. I would never be up at 2am on a tuesday, but if I were, it was because I went out to go hang out at a fraternity house. Traditions/events that happen each year are things like community service events/projects run by various fraternities such as frats at bat, dance marathon, etc. Other traditions include founders day walk for the freshman, rites of spring before finals, tailgates for football games, and the list goes on. People party a fair amount at Vanderbilt, but party culture tends to die down a lot during mid-terms and finals because people are busy studying. Essentially, however, if you have no work, you can go out and do something every night of the week here. People that do go out every night just get their work done during the day so that they can play later. Fraternities/sororities are a big part of party culture. Fraternities are what run all the parties and supply most of the social scene - with all the fraternities there are always dozens of parties to choose from each weekend. Last weekend I hung out with my friends and went out to dinner fri/sat followed by going out to fraterntiy parties with everyone. For people that dont drink, you can go downtown, go to a movie at green hills, go out to any of the fabulous restaurants in Nashville, hang out with friends in the dorm, go to any concerts/performances at blair, go to various speakers or events on campus...the list is endless. Although most students choose to go out and party, other students choose a different scene and that is entirely okay. For students not involved in the greek scene or that do not drink, there are so many things to get involved in, as well as so many groups of students like them that there is not a problem finding a place to fit in at Vanderbilt. There are norms that most students do fall under, but wherever you find yourself or whatever you are happy doing, there will be a place for you.

Dylan

Most popular organizations: greek. I am in it too--> it is a really fun way to meet new people and have some amazing activities to do. Not many students leave the dorms open because we are in the heart of a city and crime is present. The Athletic events are popular directly according to how good we are. If we are doing good man people come. Dating scene is random. You meet random boys and it seems like most of them just want a hookup (especially freshman/sophomore year). Last weekend i got drunk all weekend.

Ellie

Vanderbilt University is one big party starting 10:00 pm Thursday night. Most everyone will go play pong at their favorite frat, or hop around to get the best of them all. The fraternities definitely do have their types, but for the most part they are welcoming, lots of fun, and SAFE. Hookups happen constantly, but so do long, meaningful relationships that last out of college. People can meet anywhere: in class, student concerts, the gym, events. Since Vanderbilt is in the capital of music, one of the best ways to chill and meet people is through music venues across the street, downtown, or even on campus. Rights of Spring, the big end-of-year concert featuring big names in music, is the campus event of the year. Perfect timing, too, when everyone is stressing over exams, and enjoying friends' company towards the end of the year. Downtown (five minutes away) there are clubs, music bars, great restaurants, sports events, big-name concerts, operas, symphonies, ballets, Nashville shopping, and more. You couldn't ask for a cooler college city where the people are friendly, polite, and full of personality.

Laura

Athletics are really popular here, on the Varsity, club, and intramural levels. Basket ball games and tailgating are so fun and something that the whole student body enjoys together. Any given day of the week someone is partying, with the most people going out on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Frats and sororities control the main party scene on campus but they are not exclusive to greek members, non greeks are welcome to any fraternity party or sorority events that are open to the general community. What can you do on a Sat. night that doesn't involve drinking? Stare at the wall? You don't have to participate in the drinking but it will be going on all around you.

Andrea

I think that Greek life is a very big part of campus, as well as basketball. My favorite thing about Vandy is being in a sorority. My dorm is pretty small, so people do leave their doors open and congregate in the hallway a lot. I think that athletic events, especially basketball, are very popular. The game against UT brought so many students out that they had to send people away. I really don't pay attention to any of the guest speakers who come, as bad as that is to admit. The dating scene really doesn't occur until after freshman year, I think everyone is just after random hook ups and getting drunk, which is what the first year of college should be about. I've stayed with my high school boyfriend for many reasons, but one is that I'm so used to being in a relationship and thats the stage of my life that I am in. I don't want to do random drunken things anymore. The guys at Vandy aren't ready for that and I don't want to be single. I met my closest friends in my dorm and now in my sorority. At 2am on a Tuesday I am always awake, usually doing the work that I put off during the day. Most people go out on Tuesday's, but my boyfriend doesn't feel comfertable with me doing that, so its always good to talk, eat, and hang out with friends who are coming back. The only traditions I can think of would be Rights of Spring and Founders day. I wish we had more. I wish we did more freshman year than walk under balloons. I think people party regardles of the work they have. If we could, I think we would all go out every night. It's not uncommon at all for the weekend to start on a Thursday night or have people go out when they have a paper due the next day. I think greek life is very important, as there isn't much to do except go downtown if youre not going to a frat house. I think going out revolves around the frats. Last weekend I had my sorority formal and then the next night I went out with my big in my sorority. There are people in my dorm that don't go out and spend some nights just having popcorn and movie parties or you can go to the mall or to a concert or downtown nashville. But there really isn't anything on campus to do besides frats that youre going to find the majority of students at. I don't really go out of the Vandy bubble or off campus.

Julie

greek life is definitely huge here. i did dance marathon and had such a good experience. i'd say that athletic events are the most popular vandy events... school spirit isn't that high for football.. it's more just the fun of the games. basketball had great school spirit.. i loved being a fan for such a good team. i don't go off campus too often until it's for a meal or going downtown on a thursday night... when i have a car here or have several friends with cars, i want to explore nashville more.

Torry

Most popular organizations are the Greek organizations. I'm involved with a greek organization on campus. It is a large part of my life. Students in dorms definitely leave their doors open. Football and basketball games are a large part of student life. I met my closest friends from freshman year living and my sorority. People party a lot of the time - it depends on if there are parties available to go to or not. Fraternities and sororities are a large part of the social scene. I had two 21st birthday parties, a formal, and a st. patrick's day party to go to this past weekend. I also worked on Sunday morning. You can do a lot of stuff on Saturday night that does not involve drinking - you can go out, movies, dinner, hanging out with friends, or concerts.

Lizzy

Greek life is a big part of campus. Also other organizations such as VSG and volunteer groups are big. Students realize how much they have to offer and love to get into the community to help others. The dating scene is not great. People get stuck going to the same places each weekend with the same people and, therefore, don't meet new people. We go off campus to go to dinner or go to bars. There are plenty of things to do that don't involve drinking. You could go to dinner, a movie, and there are even some dry parties.
