Does Vanderbilt have a supplemental essay or short answer this year?

I'm a little confused because when I went to visit Vanderbilt last month, someone asked if they required an additional essay and they said they did not. However when I went on the website today, it said for the common app they want the common app essay (which I already knew they required) and a short answer. However, I cannot seem to find that short answer question anywhere. Am I missing something? Do they want an additional supplement or not and where can I find a link to what the supplement is? Thanks for your help in advance!

    The short answer is under the writing tab on the Vanderbilt application on the common app and it is an elaboration on one of your extracurricular activities.
