Our Campus is unique because: Not only do we have students from all across the country, but also from all over the world. Even though our students have different cultures and traditions, they all share a desire to learn and succeed.
One of the best ways we have found to connect with new students is: to intentionally develop meaningful friendships with them. All new students on campus hope to make friends and find a place to call home. By welcoming these students with friendship and support, we hope that they will see Christ’s love through our organization.
God is at work on our campus: God is working at Vanderbilt by opening doors for meaningful conversations. Our students are very intelligent and inquisitive. So by meeting their questions about faith and religion with open honest answers, we seek to make Christ known on our campus.
