With the demolition of the power plant coal stack now underway, the ADA accessible entrance to Sarratt Student Center|Rand Hall coming from the west (Vanderbilt Place) has changed. While construction is in progress those needing accessible access are instructed to travel north on West Side Row around Cole Hall, then head East and South East into Sarratt Student Center|Rand Hall. The path is clearly marked with signs.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
The Student Centers Social Media Team invites you to join us in celebrating 24 Hours at the Centers on Thursday, April 9. 24 Hours at the Centers explores everything (and we mean everything) that happens in our facilities over the course of 24 hours by encouraging patrons, staff, and students to share what they do in our buildings on social media. 24 Hours at the Centers will start at 12:01am on April 9th and we invite everyone to share how they interact with our five centers (Sarratt/Rand, Student Life Center, Alumni, Kissam, and Commons Center), be it for meetings, meals, coffee breaks, special events, or just walking through! We will also have free #24Center stickers for participants; find us in Rand or stop by our office for yours! Use hashtag #24Center and if you haven’t already, follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook (@meetatVU) to see why we are the “center of it all.”
Vanderbilt caters to the experiences you desire, whether would like a private party, or simply an upscale buffet to share with your friends and family in between the commencement madness. All of these options are on-campus so you do not have to worry about getting parking spots, sitting in traffic, and making sure your entire party will arrive at the destination—let alone planning the party.
Private receptions are capstones to your newly graduated loved ones’ college life—an on-campus celebration. Your party can walk directly to your private room with a package including lunch, champagne and mimosas, tables, chairs, linens, and décor. Audio Visual options can be added to any package by calling our office. We can customize your reception so you do not have to worry about the planning making the beginning of post-grad life as unique as their experience here at Vanderbilt University, allowing you to enjoy the festivities with family and friends. The Private Commencement Receptions start at $60 per person and are available on May 8, 2015 beginning at 12:00 pm. Please contact us for more details, as the reservation deadline is April 17, 2015.
Our Commodore Ballroom Buffet Lunch in the Student Life Center is an upscale on-campus option offered for lunch. If you do not want to rent an entire room, the Commencement Lunch reservations are only $30 per person and include buffet lunch, champagne bar, and seating times to accommodate your busy schedule. You can choose to be seated at 12:30 pm, 1:00 pm, 1:30 pm, or 2:00 pm.
