Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
I think they’ve all shaped it in different ways. I like to have a balance of both the social side, the pre-professional side, and the cultural side. This past year specifically, my involvement with the South Asian Society has taken up the most of my time. It’s been very enjoyable because we’re one of the largest cultural clubs on campus and we try to bring a lot of people together across campus. We host a big charity dance showcase in the fall which features 500 students across campus, so that stood out this year for my extracurriculars.
