BackgroundInterview Date:March 2019
Gender Identity: Male
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Graduation Year: Winter 2020. I’m taking an extra semester because the course load for my major makes you take an excessive number of hours per semester, so I’m just taking an extra semester to ease up on the workload. I also switched majors recently and that put me a little behind but not too much.
High School Experience: Public school in Irmo, SC with a graduating class of about 500 students. There was a culture of going to college.
First Generation College Student: No
Major: Biomedical Engineering
Extracurricular Activities: I’m in a fraternity.
What impact has being in a fraternity had on your experience?
It helped me meet people who I wouldn’t have necessarily found or hung out with. It helped me branch out and meet people outside of my immediate friend group. Most of my friends are from New Jersey, and I had never hung out with anybody from up North after growing up in the South, so that helped me branch out a bit.
