Vanderbilt, one of America's finest seats of higher learning, is also one of its most beautiful. The feeling of energy is palpable and the students are reported to be the "happiest" in the U.S.

Nashville is a beautiful city with great parks, restaurants and friendly people. Stayed at the Station Hotel. Very historic. I would go back to Nashville at any time (at least when it's not snowing), and apparently it doesn't snow very often.
