Previously known as Summer Send-off, the Commodore Launch event is a fresh take on a decades-long tradition of welcoming incoming students and parents to the Vanderbilt community. Parties are held throughout the summer across the globe. We hope you will join fellow students, parents and alumni next summer when we again welcome our newest Commodores and launch their Vanderbilt experience!
