Vanderbilt University occupies a beautiful 330-acre campus in Tennessee, less than two miles from downtown Nashville. This internationally-recognized research institution offers 70 undergraduate majors in liberal arts and sciences, engineering, music, education and human development. Residential life follows a “College Halls” system in which students and faculty live together in self-contained buildings that include study places, cafeterias, laundry facilities and stores. Vanderbilt’s U.S.-China Center for Education and Culture partners with two top universities in Guangzhou. The sports teams compete in Division I athletics; the mascot is the Commodore, named after the school’s founder. The university has produced two U.S. vice presidents, 25 Rhodes Scholars and multiple Nobel Prize laureates, including microfinance pioneer Muhammad Yunus.
