Campus Food: There is a massive array to choose from at Rand and Commons and the food is extremely high quality. Grins offers high quality vegetarian, kosher options that are as good as restaurant food. Bamboo bistro has delicious pho.

Health & Safety: Despite having a lot of campus police officers around everywhere, both on the undergraduate and graduate campus, there seems to be a relatively high number of sexual assault cases. There was also an attempted kidnapping and there have been numerous thefts on campus. However, it seems that the campus continues to make adaptations and to take further measures to better protect students and is putting forth an effort to decrease these problems. I personally have had no problems. Be smart and you'll be safe for the most part.

Athletics: Football is a very big deal, although the football team isn't that great. They still play other great teams in the conference and tailgating is a lot of fun. Basketball games are great as well and the Baseball team is awesome.

Scholarships: I've heard that the undergraduate programs have much more funding and good scholarships/financial aid. For graduate school I received no scholarships and found that disappointing, although not necessarily surprising. It is a very expensive program but that seems to be the way grad school is anywhere.

Administration: As a graduate student, no an undergraduate student I am not certain that administration is handled the same way in a medical school campus than on the larger, undergrad campus. However administration is easy to contact, responds pretty quickly and are helpful. I have no complains regarding my experience with administration thus far.

Athletics: People definitely pay attention, but we don't have the best sports teams. They're a part of the school, but not an immensely important part of campus life.

Majors: I'm not a part of any program yet (you don't pick your major until sophomore year), but the education is quality no matter what.

Party Scene: I'm not into it, but it's definitely there. Easy to find some place to get wasted on any day of the week. The frats are the main place to be, and it is mostly drinking and dancing.

Scholarships: No hitches with the financial aid at the school, I just wish it worked a little differently with scholarships and the grant. Vanderbilt does provide large grants that make it doable, but there's no denying that there are cheaper schools out there.

Local Area: Nashville has plenty to do, and campus life is full of parties if you're into that. Campus is beautiful with lots of lawns and gives a respite from the city.

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.
