Site of the

International Tai Chi Chuan Symposium
on Health, Education and Cultural Exchange

Vanderbilt University in Nashville Tennessee will host the International Tai Chi Chuan Symposium in July of 2009. Located 1.5 miles from downtown Nashville, the Vanderbilt campus is a spectacular 330-acre area that has architectural treasures dating back to its founding in 1873. Designated as a national arboretum in 1988, the beautiful campus has over 300 species of trees and shrubs including one of every species of tree that is indigenous to the state of Tennessee. One tree, the Bicentennial Oak is certified to have lived during the American Revolution and is the oldest living thing on campus.

Located on the Peabody campus at Vanderbilt, The Commons will be the epicenter of the International Tai Chi Chuan Symposium. The Commons is the location of the residence halls, dining facility, indoor and outdoor public spaces, as well as a wireless computing environment.

The Commons Center is the hub of The Commons and serves as both town square and state-of-the-art dining facility. The building includes a main dining hall, private dining rooms, community space for relaxation or social activities, and a fitness facility. The Commons Center is also home to The Common Grounds, a coffee shop and campus market conveniently located very close to all Commons residence halls.

The Commons Center is a place where Tai Chi Chuan enthusiasts from around the world can gather to dine together, practice together and grow together as a community.
