Extracurricular Activities: I’m a student-athlete, I [have a leadership position] in the Carleton Pre-Health Association. I volunteer at the hospital and the retirement community in town.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
My sport takes up a lot of my time, but the biggest thing I do that I enjoy is working at the hospital. Carleton has the Carleton Center for Community and Civic Engagement, and I’m one of the people that leads communication between Carleton and Northfield Hospital in Minnesota. That’s been particularly important to me because I’m trying to go to medical school, so being in that environment is something I enjoy and is something I try to prioritize.
