Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
PBHA did because I’m part of the music service program so that combined my interests in public service and music. The Crimson has because I’ve been making art as part of that organization, so that has been wonderful. The Conservation Society has also has played a big part because that is what I’m interested in
How easy was it to get involved in your undergraduate research?
It was pretty easy. You send a couple of e-mails to professors that you might be interested in working with. I did that sophomore year. Don’t expect every professor to say yes, but there will be at least one or two that will say yes. It is pretty easy to get involved.
