Extracurricular Activities: I’m a member of the National Society of Leadership Program. I’m doing a Study Abroad program this summer in Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, and Herzegovina called Balkans. We meet with the government officials in those countries. I’m also in a sorority.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Since I’m a Political Science major, I have always had an interest in doing stuff with international law. The study abroad program I’m going on has brought me closer to a lot of people who have the same ambitions as me. We’ve met with people who have gone on the trip in the past who talk with us about the opportunities it set them up with afterward. Going into an interview saying you went gives you so many connections.
