urban setting for its students and an abundance of off-campus activities in music and entertainment. Marked by the emphatic Old Main (now Kirkland Hall), Vanderbilt’s beautiful campus is enshrouded in greens and home to every indigenous tree in the state of Tennessee. Vanderbilt consistently ranks among the top-25 universities in the country.

The University is comprised of 10 colleges and schools and offers its 6,800 undergraduate and 6,000 graduate students access to a variety of rigorous academic disciplines and pursuits. Vandy is also home to the top-ranked Peabody College of Education and Human Development, School of Medicine, and School of Nursing. Aside from the activities associated with living in Nashville, there is a wide spectrum of student organizations on campus; approximately 40% of the student body is involved with Greek life.

The Vanderbilt Commodores compete at the Division I level in the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The men’s and women’s teams are supported by a sea of loyal fans shouting the battle cry, “Anchor Down,” to display their relentlessness and will to never give up.

Notable alumni and attendees include novelist James Patterson, actress Molly Sims, and poet Robert Penn Warren.
