The Commons Center


Located in Suite 225 of The Commons Center, the College of Arts and Science Pre-major Academic Advising Resource office (CASPAR) provides academic advice, information, and support to all students in the College of Arts and Science until they declare a major.  CASPAR advisers help students make sense of incoming credit, interpret academic requirements, select appropriate courses, develop a workable schedule each semester, and make long-term plans for a successful college career and beyond.  CASPAR advisers also help students identify other campus resources that will encourage their academic success at Vanderbilt - like the Writing Studio just down the hall.
