Extracurricular Activities: I’m involved with the Centre Christian Fellowship and Baptist Campus Ministry on campus. I’m involved with the Pre-Veterinarian Society, and I’m involved with GEMS (Girls in Engineering, Math, and Science). I’m a tour guide, and I’m a Brown Fellows Scholar.
Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
The Christian Fellowship and GEMS have really impacted my experience. For GEMS, we go to a middle and elementary school where girls have STEM-based projects going on. Through Centre Christian Fellowship, we have service opportunities on and off-campus. I like the way the [Christian Fellowship] tries to engage with the Danville community. Several organizations I was involved in my first year were kind of in a bubble, and I enjoy getting involved in things that break that bubble.
