The Colleges Program is one of the many reasons for Vanderbilt's success in producing satisfied, happy, and well-balanced students who love their life in medicine. In addition to providing students with individual counseling and assisting them in finding success in medical school, the Colleges Program plays a significant role in many student events throughout the year including the College Cup, Wellness Retreats, Pumpkin Carving, and the Shade Tree Trot (a charity event for the student-run free health clinic).
