After Vanderbilt University
- Very Good417
I am getting an awesome education and have had numerous opportunities at Vanderbilt. I have enjoyed being part of the marching band, taking part in the student run radio station and many other extra curricular activities as well. Working in a research lab as well as having a TA position has taught me a lot beyond what I would have learned in a classroom. It also helps that the financial aid is great here and my professors have been great as well..
