Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
The Association of International Students has influenced my experience here because you get to work closely with the international student center, which is called the Pensby Center, and you get an insight into how it works. Being part of dorm leadership also defined my experience because you work with the residential life office and the dean’s office which made me understand the extent to which they’re involved in student life and important on-campus resources I had access to as a student that I was previously not aware of.
