Vanderbilt's Open Enrollment period for 2015 benefits will happen October 15-31, 2014.
Open Enrollment is the time each year when all benefits-eligible Vanderbilt employees can select or make changes to important benefit programs.
Selections made during Open Enrollment will be effective January 1-December 31, 2015, unless you have a qualifying event such as marriage, divorce or the birth or adoption of a child.
FALL FRENZY---ELITE 8
Congratulations to everyone who helped Vandy defeat Rochester in the Sweet 16 of Fall Frenzy. We were 150 miles behind last Wednesday afternoon, but came back to defeat them 969-900 miles. LSU is on the other side of the bracket, and we'd love to make it an all-SEC championship, but to do that, we need to win our Elite 8 round.
Your Mission: Ride for personal and Vanderbilt glory!
How: Log miles on our Expresso Bikes in the VRWC Cardio Loft
Dates: October 21 and Oct. 22
Time span: 48 hours-every mile logged from open to close
VANDERBILT VS GANNON
Starting tomorrow, Vanderbilt will be in a 48-hour, head-to-head competition with Gannon- an indoor cycling behemoth. We need riders on the Expresso bikes at the VRWC all times of the day, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Every mile makes a difference!
*prizes are limited so get on the bikes and RIDE!
