Student Life

As a student at the College of Arts and Science, you won't just get an education: you'll become part of a thriving academic and creative community – for life.

You'll share ideas, initiate dialogues, and cultivate relationships with fellow students and faculty members that herald a lifelong commitment to learning.

You'll find a flourishing intellectual population devoted to expression and investigation in the arts, natural sciences, social sciences and humanities, as well as service to the greater Vanderbilt community.

To fortify these pursuits and ensure success in your studies, the College provides support services such as tutoring, writing studios, grant opportunities and language study centers.

The university at large also offers an abundance of resources to enhance your academic experience. In addition to university-sponsored programs devoted to leadership development, active citizenship, student government and more, you'll have full access to services supporting work study, counseling, wellness centers and outdoor recreation. Arts and Science students participate in and lead a wide variety of student-run organizations, including the Vanderbilt Programming Board and Greek Life. Most undergraduates become involved in meaningful service on campus, and many benefit from leadership development initiatives.
