Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
I recently became a Peace, Justice, and Conflict Studies minor, but the opportunities the department has given me is incredible. They are super connected to the grassroots movements and other organizations here in Chicago. They hooked me up with a position at an organization for post-graduation where I’ll work with people who’ve been impacted by incarceration violence and social inequality.
