Why join?

It's a fun and exciting opportunity to energize a student organization and make it the most known and active council on campus!

You have the ability to participate and shape the future of this organization and have your voice be heard compared to other organizations, which rarely give freshmen much power.

You have the opportunity to become involved in Vanderbilt and Peabody while strengthening your ties with your classmates.

It's a valuable way to gain leadership experience and have fun in the process!
