About
A small, private, multi-faculty research university in Nashville, Tennessee, Vanderbilt is often ranked in the top 20 colleges in the country. Named after the 19th century industrialist Cornelius Vanderbilt after a gift he hoped would help heal the post Civil war wounds. The university campus is beautiful and on-campus life dominated by the thriving Greek life (Frats & Sororities), but off-campus life also has a lot to offer given Nashville’s vibrant culture & entertainment scene. Vanderbilt is relatively strong across academic disciplines.
