YAL Welcomes Freshmen at Vanderbilt Founders Walk and Community Picnic

YAL@VU made our first impression on freshmen at the Founders Walk student organization banner contest, this year. Student organizations, including plenty of greek life, lined up with their banners along the walking route to welcome freshmen with chants, screams, and hoots. The Founders Walk is an annual Vanderbilt tradition, that "formally welcomes each first-year class into our community. Each House of The Commons, led by its Faculty Head of House and Resident Advisers and accompanied by VUceptors, [is] greeted by students, staff, alumni, administrators, and faculty." YAL@VU members had a lot of fun creating some interesting chants such as: "Y is for you and me, A is for America free, L is for liberty, Y-A-L, Y-A-L."

Afterwards, we approached groups of freshmen at the Vanderbilt Community Picnic to personally introduce them to Young Americans for Liberty and invited them to check out our table at the student org. fair.
