Extracurricular Activities: I was an athlete my freshman year but then decided to quit. I’m a senator in student government, I’m part of my residence hall’s council, and I’m part of Organization of Latino Expressions (OLE).
Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
Being part of the senate, I meet with the dean and the rest of the senators once a week and it gives me the opportunity to talk about what’s impacting my constituents on campus and get to communicate that to everyone around me. I also get to vote on the big changes we have here. I feel like that has impacted me in that I’ve learned leadership skills and gives me a sense of importance and purpose on campus.
