|Nashville couple pops the 'Vandy bubble'|
By Tony Gonzalez|
When Alice Randall and David Ewing want their apartment to be overrun by college students, they just prop open the front door.
The Nashville couple — she’s an author, songwriter and professor, he’s an attorney and history buff — moved this summer into an apartment inside one of Vanderbilt University’s freshmen dorms.
They left behind a historic home to become live-in “heads of house” on campus, helping to manage the first-time-away-from-home needs of 170 first-year students at Stambaugh House. But their passions were not to be abandoned.
The couple have embraced their roles as cultural ambassadors between the campus and the city, introducing their students to the people, places and history that make Nashville what it is. To pop the so-called “Vandy bubble” that often cloisters students from the surrounding city, Ewing and Randall moved inside it.
