Have any of your extracurriculars had a particularly big impact on your experience?
Caving club is a unique thing that I don’t think a lot of other colleges have. It’s super fun. We get to learn about caves and go spelunking and caving throughout caves in Colorado. I never caved before this and the first week there was a club fair and I walked over and then two days later I was in a cave.
