4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is a great academic school. It also has a great social scene.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: on-campus parties at frats/in dorms, and tons of opportunities in Nashville. Great bar scene, city has great night life, and always things outside of partying to do in Nashville or on-campus.

5 College Junior

Diversity: People underrate how diverse Vanderbilt is. We still have slightly fewer asians than other schools, but trust me, there are a lot. In terms of blacks and hispanics, I'd say we have more than most schools. With that said, there is room for improvement. Vandy knows that, and each class is becoming more and more diverse. Campus is probably close to half and half in terms of political beliefs, we have people representing all sorts of SES (great financial aid), but overall students are rich. Probably fewer LGBT individuals because of stigmas of the south, but a strong majority are open to anyone. Geographic diversity is amazing. We have people from everywhere, and we have been getting more from the West Coast recently, which is the only area that probably used to be underrepresented. Great diversity now, and with the direction of the school, I think we will be one of the most diverse campuses in the country in a few years. Nobody should be afraid of Vandy because they are a racial or ethnic diversity; just because we are in the south does not change the fact that we are a diverse, open environment.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Any student beginning a college career will pass through the phase of questioning his or her decision. For Vanderbilt students, this phase is a short one. The beauty and excitement of campus quickly pushes away any negative thoughts. Southern hospitality is alive and strong around Vanderbilt, and for those out-of-towners, it’s usually a welcome surprise. Taking the time to meet new people, whether they are Southern natives or people from across the country, will make the transition from high school to college a lot smoother. Finding your niche at any college is the most important thing to having a successful four years. Vanderbilt is big enough to accommodate almost anyone’s desires and small enough to make this campus feel like home for the years you spend here. 

While Vanderbilt has a lot of positive qualities, it isn’t the best choice for everyone. Choosing Vanderbilt means choosing to be in a situation where name-brand clothes and high-end cars have a certain amount of importance. Most students come from white upper-class families, and while they may not all fit the stereotype of wealthy snobs, money is in abundance for most on campus. More than anything, however, choosing Vanderbilt means choosing an extremely difficult and intense academic institution. You will pull your share of all-nighters, sit through any number of obvious “weed-out courses,” stress out over harsh grading curve, and panic when professors refuse to move deadlines despite countless other exams and papers. But thankfully, Vanderbilt embodies a work-hard, play-hard lifestyle. The second you make it through the more hellacious periods of school, there will be countless opportunities to throw all cares aside and enjoy your time at Vanderbilt.
