KOEPP: Learning humility in and out of the classroom

I can still remember my first visit to Vanderbilt after being accepted quite vividly. As part of a weekend-long open house for prospective students, I, along with my dad, made the nine-hour haul from Milwaukee to Nashville with the aim of more fully investigating the place I would call home for the next ...

I had no idea how miserable I was in Kissam until I lived in Towers. I spent a year and a half in Warren — in a double during its pilot year and then in a suite upon returning from a semester abroad. I want to be as fair as possible in my analysis of College Halls. I know Vanderbilt had grand plans for...

I wake up 20 minutes before I have to leave for class, showering so frantically that I almost forget my shower shoes (a cardinal sin when you’re talking Gillette bathrooms).

The class of 2016 has its collective tunnel vision locked on a device that is somewhere between a doomsday clock and the countdown to a wedding. As I look at this countdown, I will swing from agony to elated anticipation. I am excited as I consider life beyond commencement: a new city, new experiences...

GUEST: An open challenge to admit your failures

GUEST: An open challenge to admit your failures

Sarah Friedman, Senior Writer

April 1, 2015

The problem on our campus is that everyone here is just too wonderful. The fact is, there is someone here who is better than you at everything, and without effort. And while they’re being better than you, they’re also double majoring in chemical and biomedical engineering, studying abroad and simultaneously...
