Why Vanderbilt: “Vanderbilt offers majors I am super interested in and a level of academic prestige I know will push me to be my best, while still prioritizing excellence in athletics. Additionally, I fell in love with the girls on the team. The city of Nashville was also a big plus. In other words … The degree, the city, the SEC.”
