Extracurricular Activities: I’m a varsity athlete, I’m in Habitat for Humanity, Colleges Against Cancer, and Bentley Marketing Association. I’m also in a sorority and [hold a leadership position].
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Being a student-athlete has. The balance of being a student-athlete is definitely difficult but you meet people really early on. It’s similar to Greek life because you also feel like you’re part of a much bigger community because you have your team or your sorority, and then you also have the greater community of student-athletes or people in Greek life.
