TISL Mini Guide

November 12, 2017

In less than a week, the empty halls of the Tennessee Capital building will be filled with bustling future politicians, lawyers, and politically intrigued college students. Through the various workshops and disclaimers, it has been expressed that TISL IS NOT A PARTY! However, you can still enjoy the beautiful city of Nashville.


As college students, every penny saved is a penny earned, so here are a couple of hotspot food options that will not break the bank.


1. Fresco Southwest Grille


This restaurant specializing in Mexican cuisine is highly rated amongst the locals and offers affordable food options suitable for a college student’s budget. Fresco is offering many vegetable based dishes. The average price for an entrée is $6.50. Fresco prides themselves on serving every patron with fresh ingredients and creating lasting memories.


2. Jamaicaway Restaurant and Catering


Want to spice up your same old same old? Well, this spot is bound to make your taste buds do a double take. Jamaicaway offers authentic Jamaican food such Curried Goat, Jerk, and Oxtails. In addition to the exotic meats, Jamiacaway is vegan and will accommodate your preference. Their meals range in price from $2.99-$10.50.


As mentioned earlier TISL is not a party, however, the beautiful city of Nashville has some

exhilarating sites and events that will take place.


1. The Nashville Parthenon


Have you ever wanted to visit Greece, well now you can…sort of? Nashville houses an exact replica of the original Parthenon in Athens, Greece. The Nashville Parthenon was constructed by William Crawford Smith in 1897, it now stands tall on 5 beautiful acres with breathtaking landscape.


 2. Joe Biden: An American Promise Tour


See former vice president Joe Biden in full discussion that will go beyond the typical news cycle or social media post. Jon Meacham, a renowned presidential historian will serve as the moderator for the night. This event is November 19th at 7:30 pm at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, every ticket purchased earns a copy of Mr. Biden’s memoir Promise me, Dad: A Year of Hardship, and Purpose. This is an amazing way to conclude the TISL experience.





I hope this mini guide will catapult you and your delegation to explore Nashville more and immerse yourselves in its rich culture and history. I wish everyone the best of luck in all endeavors!
