Video: Finding their passion

It’s just something you have to see to believe: move-in day for more than 1,600 new undergraduates and the official Founders Walk welcome. Our VUCast crew tags along as the new students begin their Vanderbilt journey.

Vanderbilt’s video production unit won five Regional Emmy awards in 2007 in advanced media for videos produced for VUCast, Vanderbilt’s news network. This was the first time the university received television’s highest honor.
