High School Experience: I went to a public school in central Ohio with a graduating class of about 150 students. There was somewhat of a culture of going to college. They obviously wanted people to go to college, but I don’t think the people there are as motivated as they are at other places.

Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
All of them have in their own way. My team and my fraternity have been the two big ones. My team because it gave me a schedule, gave me a purpose, gave me an outlet when school is tough and gave me a routine because I have class and then practice. The coaches have been phenomenal and have created a culture within the team where everyone works hard and pushes for each other. The fraternity has been kind of the same thing because you get really close with your fraternity brothers and it gives me an outlet on the weekends.
