I love the collaborative, friendly environment.
The food in the Freshmen Commons building at the beginning of the year was not very good, but they have fixed that by giving it a larger variety.
The University offers a life-changing experience. The experience is certainly shaped by the people you surround yourself with, but alongside the aid of some amazing professors and participating in fun organizations, it can be great. The school could benefit from investing more into the dining experience, as it can be tricky to find quality food depending on location.
Make conscious choices about who you surround yourself with and with what you become involved. It can certainly shape your experience. Be sure to ask other students about their experiences with certain professors or in certain organizations.
A phenomenal academic experience and a close-knit community of peers. I will say they have work to do on financial inclusion and first-gen programs, and it is odd living in dorms for 4 years, but overall I am happy to be a commodore!
Extremely competitive, class-oriented, large focus on investment banking and consulting as careers.
I love the balance that all Vanderbilt students have. Students are competitive with themselves and work hard, but are never competitive with one another. Everyone is smart and willing to learn, but also interesting and fun. Everyone is unique at Vandy.
Housing and food are not great. Can be frustrating.
I love the community of people who are excited to learn, while still remembering to have fun and destress every now and then. The campus is beautiful and the professors are very impressive.
The food could certainly be better and the weather can be a bit rough at times, but otherwise, things in Nashville are wonderful.
