Vanderbilt welcomes the Class of 2022

It’s become synonymous with the culture of Vanderbilt University: showing caring and enthusiasm through service. On Move-In Day, that means hauling lots of boxes, clothes, mini fridges and “must haves” for the newest class moving into The Martha Rivers Ingram Commons.

Move-In by the numbers

  • More than 1,500 cars come through during Move-In
  • Roughly 250 carts are used
  • 1,200 volunteers (students and staff) help with Move-In

New faculty leaders

Some new and familiar faces are now calling The Ingram Commons home. Professor Gregory Melchor-Barz, who spent a decade as the faculty head of North House, is now the interim dean of The Ingram Commons. Melchor-Barz chairs the Department of Musicology and Ethnomusicology at Vanderbilt’s Blair School of Music.

A professor of law and chemistry, Sean Seymore is the new faculty head of East House. Dan Morgan, associate dean in the College of Arts and Science and a senior lecturer in earth and environmental sciences, is the new faculty head of Memorial House. And Natasha McClure, assistant professor in the School of Nursing, is the new faculty head of North House.

Earth-friendly Move-In

The VU Cardboard Crew will assist first-year students at The Ingram Commons with recycling their cardboard, styrofoam and plastic film wrapping. Learn more about how to support sustainability on campus here.
