Social Events

Vanderbilt Recovery Support (VRS) has several social events around Nashville to give students time to develop a community.  Students enjoy spending time together for family dinners, movie night, bowling excursions, and to grab gelato or ice cream together.  Additionally, the VRS Lounge, located in the Center for Student Wellbeing, is available 24 hours a day/7 days a week for students who are members.  The space can be used to study, rest, and socialize in a safe sober space on campus.

VRS Membership is available for students with a minimum of 90 days sobriety.  Students may contact recovering@vanderbilt.edu for an application.  While the recovery support meetings are open to all as well as the many events we sponsor, membership has specific advantages.
