Extracurricular Activities: I’m a member of the Indian Student Subcontinent Association and I’m associating for a multicultural sorority. Associating is similar to rushing, we just don’t use the term rushing.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
Both of them have had a really good impact. ISSA has had an especially good impact because Baylor is primarily Caucasian and refers to itself as “unapologetically Christian,” so being able to associate with people of my own culture has helped my experience. It’s also helped me grow and the school and find opportunities with people who are in the same situation as me.
