An introduction to CommonVU
Posted by Joe Hills, Designer, Digital Commons on December 14th, 2009 at 12:09 pm
CommonVU, a week-long orientation for first-year students, begins with Move-In Day Saturday, August 21 and ends Sunday, August 29. The week includes special advising sessions, community-building activities, and academic classes. During CommonVU, you can begin to experience and explore the university by building new communities—in your House and its residential floor, across The Commons and the university campus, and in your academic classes. You will be engaged in activities with other first-year students, with peer mentors and with Vanderbilt upperclassmen. Faculty heads of house, academic advisers, and other Vanderbilt professors will join with you and your classmates as you begin to discover the personal, academic, intellectual, and social opportunities of life at Vanderbilt.
When you arrive on campus and pick up your keys and Commodore Card, you will also receive The Book, which contains a detailed schedule of CommonVU week, a campus map, and helpful information for your first year at Vanderbilt.
