'Dores to Divinity Official Visit Days

Dores to Divinity

Come spend a day with us!

We invite you to visit Vanderbilt and see if this might be the right place for you to take the next steps in your theological education.  Official visit days include opportunities to talk with current students, attend a class, talk about the application process and financial aid with an admissions officer, meet faculty, and tour the campus.  Each group visit day also features a session spotlighting some aspect of our community life. 

Check back in early July for a list of fall visit days and registration links!
