The ILC’s Maiden Voyage to Vanderbilt: First Day in the Music Capital of the World

Today was not the day, but the eve of the day before we started our World Religions class at Vanderbilt University. We left the illustrious confines of the city of Atlanta to travel through the vast country to Music City U.S.A, Nashville, Tennessee. Today we took time out to relax before our real educational adventure. We visited Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse to wind down and enjoy dinner after our 3 hour trip.
We enjoyed an extraordinary dinner—which afterwards we worked off at the gym. I find it extremely important to bond with my cohorts and my chaperone because this experience is a true partnership. We are sent as a group to these trips for a reason, we were chosen as a unit for a reason. I find it rewarding to be able to take time out with my group to further strengthen our bond, allowing us to be more productive, and helping us to discover what was seen in us that made us seem like a prospective group.

  1. Kye,

    I give up. You’re now three for three. You all head off to a STEAK house and none of you has a steak. Aiyana goes for the poultry, Julia goes for the fish and you go for a big bug that lives on the bottom of the ocean. I just don’t get it. Where did we go wrong?

    [By the way—that itty bitty slice of beef on your plate hardly counts. You go to a steak house for a slab of beef that hangs over the sides of the plate.]

    The next thing I know you’ll be heading off to a KFC and asking for a steak sandwich.

    At least your bug looked good.

    I hope you sent that dessert back, though. Someone too a bite right out of the middle.

    You get a gold star, though, for understanding completely about working as a team. We didn't send three of you to Nashville. We sent a COHORT to Nashville.
