Extracurricular Activities: I’m [have a leadership position] in the Law Society, I was in the Diversity Student Union, I did Best Buddies, and I’ve done Centre Ambassadors every year except this year. I do the Phonathon now and do fundraising for the school, I’m on the Student Advancement Board, and I’m a mentor in MAGIC.
Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
Centre Ambassadors did because I got to learn a lot more about the college and that prompted me to do the Phonathon as well. I really enjoyed getting to meet prospective students and talking to them. It was every week, so I had an opportunity each week to learn about and represent the college. Being part of the Diversity Student Union helped make connections on campus, especially within minority groups on campus. MAGIC was impactful for me as a Black woman because I was able to make connections in Danville and mentor young women who are growing up in similar situations to mine in high school. Best Buddies has been meaningful to be part of. Generally, clubs at Centre that allow you to work with people in the Danville community have really shaped my collegiate experience.
