In the interest of protecting the health and safety of the Vanderbilt Community from the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the University has suspended school-sponsored events through April 30.

This impacts Welcome Weekend as previously planned. We are actively evaluating solutions to provide opportunities for incoming students to interact with each other and learn more about life at Vanderbilt and in Nashville.

We will be monitoring this complex and fluid situation and will continue to keep you informed of any changes. Now, more than ever, we will pull together and do what Vanderbilt does best – collaborate, find solutions, and move forward, together.

We certainly want to stay in touch and answer any and all of your questions. Our recruiting teams are available to chat via ZOOM meeting, phone call, or email.

Visit vu.edu/coronavirus for the latest information about COVID-19.
