Common Reflections

About 1,550 first-year students at Vanderbilt are now housed in The Commons in “houses” with names familiar to Peabody alums: North, West, East, Gillette and Memorial. In addition there are the newly constructed Murray, Stambaugh, Sutherland, Crawford and Hank Ingram Houses, built where the Married Student and Garrison apartments once stood. Here, The Commons Center, which stands where the Hill Student Center used to be, reflects the residence of the dean of The Commons, Frank Wcislo, right in the center of things.
