Major: Earth Sciences. It used to be called Geology, but the name was recently changed.
Extracurricular Activities: I’m in Black Student Association, I’m in Greek life, I serve on the Student Government Association, which is one of the two governing bodies on campus, and I’m on the Outreach and Diversity Committee and the First Year Governance Committee
Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
The Student Government Association (SGA) because I feel that I have been able to make an impact through that club. Being part of the Outreach and Diversity Committee has allowed me to connect to so many different people who don’t look like me on this campus, which I do find important because so many times people get used to being around people who look like them, and when you get acclimated to people who don’t look like you or think like you it allows you to have some incredible dialogue.
