Vanderbilt University
Commodore Connection | May 2023
Welcome to the Vanderbilt family!  

We are delighted your student chose Vanderbilt University as their home away from home. They will flourish in our dynamic living-learning community that makes the Vanderbilt experience unique. Our outstanding faculty, administration and staff are here to care and support them throughout their collegiate journey.  

Commodore Connection is an email newsletter series created exclusively for families of Vanderbilt students. You will receive monthly issues tailored for the families of transfer students from June until Move-In in August. Once your student is on campus, you will receive a monthly edition that is sent to all undergraduate families.  

We are looking forward to seeing you on campus in August and hope you will visit as often as you can. Please save the date for Family Weekend, which will be Oct. 13–15, 2023. It will be a weekend full of fun activities, so come out to help us cheer on our ’Dores as they take on Georgia.  

As members of the Vanderbilt community, we also encourage you to connect with your local Vanderbilt Chapter through virtual and in-person events when available. To find your local Vanderbilt Chapter and information on events happening in your area, please visit our Vanderbilt Chapter page. 

Additional information for transfer students can be found at Transition Programs. Move-in information and transfer student orientation schedule will be available in early August. 

Please know our office is here to serve and support you in the coming months and years.
