Exam time is upon us here at Vanderbilt, so we here at The Commons Center are trying to do everything in our power to assist you in your time of extreme studying.
All meeting spaces in The Commons Center are available for studying when no events are being held. This means that the Fireside Lounge, the MPR, the Towers Conference Room, and all other areas on the first two floors are open for business.
Additionally, look for special deals and study breaks, such as last night’s Chick-Fil-A surprise.
Finish out the year strong!
Feeling drowsy from all of that studying? Well take a break! April 25th, 26th, 29th and 30th, the Dean of Students Office and Sarratt Student Center bring you free coffee drinks from 6PM to 9PM. Come to the Last Drop Coffee Shop and enjoy some caffeine, on us!
There is only one way to end the year with a bang… and that is the Commons Carnival!
Come out to hear student performances, learn the winner of the Commons Cup, and say goodbye to four of our departing Faculty Heads of House. We will wish Jo-Anne Bachorowski, Mark Dalhouse, Ron Schrimpf, and Sharon Shields a fond farewell amidst balloon animal makers, funnel cakes, and line dancing lessons.
The Commons Carnival will be held outside the Commons Center on Sunday, April 22nd, from 4-8 PM. House alums are welcome to attend. We hope to see everyone there!
It is that time of year again, the summer months are approaching and with that comes finals. If you need a place to study the Student Centers have you covered. Sarratt Student Center will be open 24/7 and the Student Life Center will be extending its hours to 12am during finals.
Starting April 24, Sarratt meetings rooms will be available for study space, unless posted otherwise. In the SLC, the Board of Trust Room and Lower Level meeting rooms will be available from 7am-12am on weekdays, and 9am-12am on weekends. Both centers will have space available until the end of exams on May 3.
Whether studying alone or in a group, Student Centers is the place to be!
Student leaders are now able to renew their organization’s registration for the 2012-13 academic year. All organizations must renew their registration annually in order to be recognized by the University as a registered student organization (RSO). The deadline for renewal for the 2012-13 academic year is April 16, 2012. We encourage you to complete this process as soon as possible so that you are able to begin using Anchor Link for your organization.
This year, the registration will be conducted through Anchor Link.
Sarratt Student Center is collecting all t-shirts, flyers, posters, and photos from past student events to help decorate the new spaces in the renovation. We want your organization to literally leave its mark in the building. Drop off any old promotional items to Sarratt Suite 100.
VSG’s April Movie of the Month will be held on Friday, April 13th, at 7 and 10 pm in Sarratt Cinema. The selected movie is “Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game of Shadows” and as always, free drinks, candy, and popcorn will be provided for all who attend.
With the approaching renovation of Sarratt/Rand, we are excited to announce that more meeting rooms will be available Fall 2012!

Renovation is well under way and its time to start packing up our spaces! To help energize the packing process, Sarratt will be throwing a packing party Tuesday April 10th at 7pm. Pizza and wings from Jet’s on us!
There are two things in life that are certain: death and taxes! Come out for the final Current Events and Critical Conversations gathering of the year as three Vanderbilt professors square off on the value of taxes in our society today.
Free food will be provided. That means you pay no taxes on it.
