Thursday night socials. Marketing Madness. Tailgate parties. Multicultural events. And yes—salsa lessons.


The days at Vanderbilt are filled with intellectual challenges, rigorous course work and provocative questions crying out for attention and analysis. The nights are often spent in Management Hall with your team getting ready for the next day, the next presentation, the next test.

However, mingled in with the days and nights of hard work, there is a social life at Vanderbilt. Student clubs host a number of activities to bring the community together in the spirit of fun:

  • Hiking and Biking with the Deans
  • Owen Tailgates at Vanderbilt Football Games
  • Student Club Fair
  • Community Barbeque
  • Halloween Party
  • Casino Night
  • Owen vs. Law School Kickball Tourney
  • India Party
  • Holiday Party
  • MLK Jr. Day Celebration
  • Marketing Madness
  • Trivia Night
  • Chili Cook-Off
  • Black History Month Social
  • Monopoly Night
  • St. Patrick’s Day Party
  • Owen vs. Law School Dodgeball Tourney
  • 100% Owen Auction
  • Owen Follies
  • Intramural Sports
  • International Day

Annual International Thanksgiving Dinner

This is a unique Thanksgiving Dinner as we shared with our international classmates one of our favorite things about Thanksgiving . . . FOOD. And our international students brought their favorite dishes from back home! And we played some great board games to keep the party going! More pictures here.

Marketing Madness

This year’s Marketing Madness event was a great success. Teams—made up of MBA and the inaugural class of Master of Marketing students—manned their brand booths, presenting their products and promotional ideas to students, faculty and staff.
