Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 2011

College Life Rating

Vandy's long standing motto is: WORK HARD, PLAY HARD. As much as students are dedicated to their studies and to their extracurriculars, the social scene is still very much a big part of any Commodore's life. Whether you are Greek or just like to explore Nashville, if you're into science, chess, fasion, etc, you can have a wonderful time.

Former Student - Last Attended 1996

College Life Rating

Great music scene, strong greek life, competitive sports, and a diverse student body, it's truly a great way to spend four years. A typical weekend will find you attending a sporting event, followed by a party at a fraternity or club, capped off with time hitting the bars conveniently located around campus.
