About Vanderbilt


"It would be easy to say it's not important whether you're a classical pianist or nationally ranked athlete, a home-educated student or a prep school grad. The reality is those differences are important because the greatness of this community stems from students who are talented, dedicated and inspired about a wide range of things."

~Katie Walden, Class of 2014, Blair

What's a 'Dore?
The mascot of Vanderbilt University is the Commodore, in honor of our founder, Cornelius Vanderbilt, who gave himself that title. The Commodores compete in the Southeastern Conference and field 15 men's and women's varsity teams. Go 'Dores!
