Students dove back into campus well rested after a week off and were hit with a flurry of activity. From concerts to on campus celebrations, see what we were up to. 

Sesquicentennial

Vanderbilt celebrated its Sesquicentennial Anniversary this weekend. Alumni Lawn was crowded with games, families and food trucks to mark the occasion.  

Sports 

Spring sports were all in full swing this week on West End, but the Commodores fell short at home. Men’s and women’s tennis both lost SEC matchups at the Currey Tennis Center. Men’s Basketball lost its NIT game against UAB to officially end their season. Lacrosse, however, pulled through with its first conference win of the season against Old Dominion after falling to Towson earlier in the week.

Editor’s picks

After a pause from academics on spring break, students enjoyed concerts around Nashville while they eased back into life at school. Yo La Tengo performed in drag before students were back on campus at the Basement East. Cafuné played at the same venue the following week. Following the Love Rising benefit concert at the Bridgestone Arena earlier in the week, John Mayer performed on his “SOLO” tour March 24.

Back on campus, PETA protesters lingered around VUMC. Some were dressed in monkey suits to call attention to the use of monkeys in NIH’s Dr. Elisabeth Murray’s experiments.
