Office Hours: Wednesday, 6:00-7:00 pm

I’m a senior from Los Angeles, CA majoring in Spanish and Math, and I’m incredibly excited to be overseeing WRVU this year.  I started training as a freshman after bumping into a WRVU DJ at a Smith Westerns concert, and the rest was history.  I served as Training Director for three semesters after that, and then took a semester off to study abroad in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.  Now that I’m back, I’m looking forward to a great last year as a DJ and making WRVU even better than it was before as GM.

Office Hours: Wednesday, 7:00-8:00 pm

I’m a sophomore from Clearwater, FL studying history and music. I worked as a DJ and producer of a 60′s rock and folk show at a Tampa FM radio station and am psyched to now be the program director for WRVU! I’m a singer/songwriter and guitarist and am minoring in voice at Vanderbilt’s Blair School of Music.  My musical roots are in 60′s and 70′s artists, but my branches are all over the place. I own an embarrassing amount of White Stripes and Jack White paraphernalia. Bob Dylan, Brandi Carlile, My Morning Jacket, Donovan, and Neil Young are just a few of my favorites. Let’s spin some records!

Greetings to readers of the WRVU website! I am a junior from Macon, GA studying Math and Economics. I enjoy more than my fair share of music and am always down to compare iTunes libraries. We are living in challenging & exciting times for musicians & listeners, and I look forward to furthering the station’s position and relevance in the fast-paced digital music world of today.

Office Hours: Monday, 8:00-9:00 pm

I’m a sophomore from Murfreesboro, TN, studying Creative Writing and Corporate Strategy. Musically, I love great lyrics and a folksy sound, and some of my favorite artists are Local Natives, The Avett Brothers, and Fleet Foxes. I definitely appreciate the indie rock and electronica genres, too. I’m excited to listen to all the new music that comes to the station in my first year as Music Director!

Sup y’all. I am currently a sophomore studying English and Sociology with some marketing and business on the side. I hail from the cornfields of Indiana and spend most of my free time reading, writing, chillin with my bros, and listening to and playing music. While I listen to an inordinate volume and variety of music, I’ve lately been into the DIY, undiscovered garage & bedroom pop kinda stuff from the depths of Bandcamp. I’m really excited to join the staff and help in keeping the station magnificent.

Hey y’all. I’m a senior from Woodstock, GA, and I got the chance to be a part of WRVU during my freshman year as a DJ. I got a lot of my musical taste from my twin sister, who listens to more music than anyone I know. Everything from 90′s emo to shoegazing is on my show, Pop Rocks and Soda.  I’m studying Econ, Poli-Sci, and Math at Vandy, and besides WRVU, I’m involved with VUTheater and ASB.  I can’t wait to get this year started!

Office Hours: Wednesday, 5:00-6:00 pm

I am a junior, double-majoring in Philosophy and History of Art, with a particular interest in comparative genocide studies. A native Nashvillian (or “townie,” as it were), I revel in the local music scene–be it friends from Belmont playing bluegrass at the Hard Rock or stumbling upon an impromptu jam session involving a sitar and a vintage Moog on a neighbor’s balcony. As such, I’m thrilled to be serving as the station’s publicity director for a second year and continuing to make WRVU more accessible to the community and vice versa. I can be found in the office at odd hours, equipped with a bad pun and a desire to learn about everything.

Office Hours: Monday, 12:00-1:00 pm

I am a sophomore from San Diego, California majoring in music and business. I love hearing new artists, attending concerts, and conducting interviews.  In the next three years I hope to dive more into the Nashville scene, start a band, and continue my involvement with WRVU. As events coordinator, I look forward to bringing the best in new music to our station!

I’m a sophomore hailing from Bowling Green, KY currently pursuing a double major in Chinese and Economics and trying to snag a Music minor. I love playing guitar and piano, singing, playing soccer, writing music, swimming, and going to every concert I can. This past summer I attended my first festival, going to Lollapalooza in Chicago! My musical tastes are rather spastic and range from Jason Mraz to Major Lazer. I’m very excited to join the staff during my first year as a DJ!

I am a senior majoring in Computer Science and Math, but don’t worry I’ve also got the liberal arts covered with my film minor. I’ve been with WRVU since my sophomore year when my roommate, Neal (our wonderful GM), got me to join. I’ve loved every moment with the radio since then. This’ll be my third semester on E-Staff and I’m thrilled to get to make things pretty (its what we graphic artists do). As a random tidbit my favorite artists are iamamiwhoami, Saint Motel, Fiona Apple, The Knife and a ton of others.

I’m a sophomore hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area, pursuing a double major in Film Studies and Human & Organizational Development. My musical taste is random at best, but I could sum it up to Frenchy-folksy-indie pop with a dash of soul and a hint of angst. While my Nashville musical bucket list is long, I did go to Bonnaroo and we all have to start somewhere. I am more than jazzed to train new DJs this year!
