Extracurricular Activities: I’m on the school’s newspaper, The Bucknellian. I do photography as a hobby so I’m so I work with a couple of art and fashion magazines on-campus. I’m part of Greek life. I’m part of Spoon University where we look at food in the area. I’m also a writing tutor on-campus.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your college experience?
Being a writing tutor was really rewarding and I think that’s something I’ll look back on as being a highlight of Bucknell because I am able to meet so many more students than I used to be able to. I actually get to help them with their writing, which in turn helps me with my writing because checking over someone else’s grammar and that gets imprinted in my mind and has helped my writing grow. It’s been really cool to use my skills to help other people, especially first year students and international students.
