  • The simplest home medical tests might look like a deck of various silicon chips coated in special film, one that could detect drugs in the blood, another for proteins in the urine indicating infection, another for bacteria in water and the like. Add the bodily fluid you want to test, take a picture with your smart phone, and a special app lets you know if there’s a problem or not.

  • Meet economics major Jayson Chung. #HumansofVanderbilt

    Q: Why did you choose Vanderbilt?
    
A: I chose Vanderbilt for two reasons, kind of three. First was I didn’t want to go too far north because I don’t like the cold. The second reason was the great financial aid that they offer. I come from a low socioeconomic background so going to a college with great financial aid was definitely a priority for me. And the third reason was the #1 happy students in the nation. I heavily relied on the statistic since I wasn’t able to visit Vanderbilt before I came.

    Q: Of all things at Vanderbilt, what are some of the experiences you feel you gained the most from?
    
A: I would say the most impactful experiences I’ve had have been from the organizations I’ve been in - just being in a community of kids your age that are just as intelligent as you and just as passionate about things that you are. . . seeing the end goals and meeting them. There’s one organization I’m in called Martha O’Bryan World Cup. Every Thursday we go and volunteer with kids for 2 hours at this middle school that can’t afford a sports program - we go and train them in soccer. They love it because it’s the most exposure to sports these kids ever get to have.

    Q: Regarding your passions, where and how do you think you discovered them?
    
A: I definitely discovered everything I’m passionate about in my childhood and in high school. I had these passions before I came to Vanderbilt, but it’s the different avenues Vanderbilt has of letting you explore these passions that I like best. I know a lot of people who discovered passions at Vanderbilt, though. I think I was lucky enough to kind of know these things before I got here so instead of looking for new passions once I got here, I was able to explore and dive deeper into the passions I have. Vanderbilt has definitely offered multiple ways of actually doing this and getting to know why I am passionate about these things and get hands on engagement.

  • Vanderbilt’s baseball program has a proud history that stretches all the way back to 1886, but much of the team’s success has happened under head coach Tim Corbin. To his former players, he’ll always be as much a father figure as he is a coach, known simply to them as “Corbs.”

    “The kids who come to the program are bound together by a sport,” Corbin says. “But inside the sport, there’s a family as well. To have success, it’s necessary to nurture that family. The benefits from that are not always exposed on a scoreboard, but they are seen in the relationships the kids have and in their emotions about Vanderbilt once they leave.”

  • “To many Americans, D-Day demonstrated the exceptionalism of the United States, its willingness to sacrifice for freedom and liberty for others,” says Professor Thomas Schwartz, professor of history, political science and European studies.

    “It provided the confidence that shaped the postwar world order and helped build the domestic political support for a sustained role in world affairs.”

    Schwartz says the size and scale of the D-Day amphibious invasion in Normandy, France, was unprecedented in its time and unlikely to ever be equaled. Nearly 160,000 troops crossed the English Channel on D-Day. #DDay75 Read more at https://news.vanderbilt.edu/2019/06/06/75-years-later-d-day-continues-to-represent-exceptionalism/

  • New signs of polarization suggest Tennessee may be at a political inflection point, according to the latest Vanderbilt University poll.

    “What is happening nationally in terms of polarization is beginning to infiltrate state politics,” says John Geer, poll director and Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor of Political Science. “We’re at a crossroads—going forward, our state leaders can choose to address issues that divide or issues that unite.”

  • Meet juniors Ceara and Karrie. #HumansofVanderbilt

    Q: What's something your roommates and friends don't know about you?
    K: I don't know if my roommate or friends know, but I wanted to do a gap year after I complete my undergrad and go on the show Survivor.
    C: Well, my friends do know this, but I want to go on the Amazing Race with my boyfriend. We've been addicted to that show recently, and I think we'd be so amazing at it.

    Q: Did you guys know you both wanted to be game show stars?
    C: I remember we had a brief conversation about it.
    K: For me, I feel like game shows are the tunnel in. Sometimes, Survivor winners go on to the Amazing Race or Big Brother. It's kind of a little tunnel into reality TV.

    Q: So if you guys were on the same season of The Amazing Race...
    C: Oh, she would definitely lose, but that's beside the point. I don't want to be a reality star. Actually, I have never wanted to be famous.
    K: That means she's not going to win.
    C: However, I'm very competitive, and I feel like I don't have any of the fears that are ever introduced on the Amazing Race. I have no fears of heights or dying... and I'm very athletic and smart enough. Overall, it's a good competition for me.

  • Introducing our newest series...#HumansofVanderbilt! Our first feature is on rising senior Atlee Witt. #VU2020

    Q: What brought you to Vanderbilt?
    A: I honestly had not heard of Vanderbilt before coming here - I only applied because my counselor told me to check it out. When I visited I realized it was the only school I toured where all of the undergraduate students smiled at me as a prospective student.

    Q: What would you say is the most impactful experience you’ve had at Vanderbilt?
    A: Being a part of discussions with administration regarding tour guides and compensation - it’s been a big opportunity for me to not only think about issues bigger than myself and bigger than myself as a student, but also to think towards the future and how things impact future generations at Vanderbilt.

    Q: What are the things you’ll miss the most at Vanderbilt once you graduate?
    A: Rand cookies. And because everything is so central on Vanderbilt’s campus I feel like I can walk 30 feet and be with any of my friends or go to any events - I’m not going to have that when I’m an adult. There are just so many cool opportunities.

    Q: As you are looking forward, what do you think Vanderbilt has provided for you in terms of your personal development?
    A: To question things. I came in and never really questioned how I’d been brought up or my values or beliefs, and at Vanderbilt you’re surrounded by so many different people that you have to question what you believe. You have to question what you’ve always been told, and it lets you build on your beliefs and change your perspective. It’s been really challenging, but a great growth opportunity, and I want to take that into my professional life when I’m an adult - to continuously question things.

    Q: If you could say something to our followers, what would it be?
    A: Anchor Down! And if you can, visit campus. If you’re thinking about coming here - visit campus. If you already came here, visit campus again. Because every time I come here I fall more in love with it.
