            Vanderbilt is intimate. The professors push you and provoke you, but they also support you. Twenty-five years after I have left, Vanderbilt has become a University, more competitive, more diverse, and more dynamic than it was when I attended. It produces students with the tools to change the world and the empathy to change it in the most positive, profound ways.
