Welcome, Chattanooga 'Dores
Welcome to the Chattanooga Vanderbilt Chapter! With more than 1,300 alumni in this area we have a great community of 'Dores. Whether you are new to the area, or have called it home for years, the Chattanooga Chapter is a great way to reconnect with old Vandy friends and meet new ones. Our chapter events have included lectures from Vanderbilt professors about such hot topics as health care reform ; meetings at the Hanover Gallery and "An Artful Event"; monthly social hours; and cheering on the 'Dores at various sporting events. Our chapter is open to anyone associated with the Vanderbilt community, including alumni, spouses, students, parents, friends and faculty. Interested in joining the email list to receive more information on upcoming events in our area? Be sure your email and mailing addresses are current on VUconnect. You can also join us on Facebook. I hope to see you at a future event.
Northshore and downtown are fun places to live, but can be considerably more expensive. There isn’t really much traffic, so living in the Brainerd, East Ridge, or Ooltewah areas could help you save money, while you can still get downtown in 20 minutes or less! These areas also have access to whatever you want or need. Recreation opportunities abound—you will enjoy the outdoors here! ’15
There is an up-and-coming hipster scene on Frazier Ave on the north side of the river. Much like 21st Ave. near Vanderbilt, it has boutique shops and incredible eateries. It also has easy access to two riverfront parks for gorgeous views of the river. ’15
