Extracurricular Activities: I’m a tour guide, I [have a leadership position] in the sorority I’m in, I work as a teacher’s assistant, and I [have an entrepreneurial project] with a couple of students at College of Charleston.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Yeah, I would say all of them have. Being a tour guide allowed me to connect with a lot of people that run the school and build my network. Working as a T.A. has been great because I get to help other students around the college. Then, the majority of my friends are in my sorority, so it’s nice to have something that I’m really passionate about.
