Visiting my nephew

Beautiful campus. It was actually quite some time ago. March 2016 was the latest it would let me choose. There was a fun bookstore we were able to buy our kids some Vandy hats.

Always travel a yearly road trip from Jax FL. Nice place to stop by small towns like Valdosta. Always go by Atlanta and Chattanooga! Might try Ruby Falls next! The mountain views are nice. Nashville is a beautiful city!

Nice to rid thru to see the campus architecture. Be aware there are several one-way streets that can make the ride thru longer, and more interesting.

What a gem in downtown Nashville. A well known university situated in the heart of Nashville. Has a collegiate feel to the campus but an urban location. Top notch college to boot

Our son was here for a week long athletic camp. Great facilities and the staff we encountered was very helpful. Campus is situated among bars, restaurants, grocery and coffee shops. Multiple hotels in the area too.

Thank Kimberly R
