Extracurricular Activities: I volunteer at the local hospital and clinics, I’m a resident assistant, and a research assistant.

Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
I believe the opportunity to be a resident assistant has been the most powerful experience because of being able to help other students at Earlham get closer to each other, in addition to creating that home away from home for them.
