Extracurricular Activities: I’m in the Comedy Club, I do standup comedy, and am in a middle school girl mentor program.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Improv Comedy has. I joined as a freshman and it ended up being a big social group. This was a big introduction to getting to know upperclassman, and making an identity for myself on campus. It’s a pretty serious group, and we practice 6 hours a week. We’ve become a pretty tight-knit group. Bowdoin has this emerging comedy scene that’s popping up and is really cool. I did standup in an all-girls comedy group, and there are other improv and standup groups as well.
