Major: Computer Science
Extracurricular Activities: I’m part of a dance group, I [have a leadership position] in Colby African Society, I play Club Soccer, and I play drums with my friends.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
The Colby African Society has played the biggest role because there are very few Africans at Colby so it helped me find people I could relate to. The dance group is fun because it lets me blow some steam off. Practice is during the weekend and is fun. I play soccer just because it’s fun.
