Vanderbilt’s mission is to encourage our students in inquisitive thinking and curious exploration. Our Course Catalog consists of many diverse, unique classes – but what do first-years think their most interesting classes this semester are?
Throughout the academic year, we will be documenting the lives of first year students as we tackle campus life, academic focuses, intramural sports, and extracurricular fields. In our first weeks on campus, finding students of similar backgrounds, creeds, identities, and passions can prove not only exhilarating, but exhausting. In the span of sixty seconds, tour the globe as we travel across two dozen students’ hometowns to make you feel a bit more at home at Vanderbilt University.
