Extracurricular Activities: My first two years I participated in the Debate and Consulting Clubs.

Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
I think both of them are very impactful. For the Debate Club, I got to debate with native speakers. Every weekend I’d travel to a different school and participate in the debate tournament. Through that activity, I met a lot of friends from different schools. They are all advanced English speakers, so I got to improve my English, my ability to think on the spot, and my knowledge of the U.S. and the world. It was also a good getaway from Smith.

I was the coach for the Consulting Club, and it’s helped me understand the consulting industry. It’s good preparation for the future, but I also got to practice my leadership skills. The two activities are good in their own ways.
