Gender Identity: Male

Graduation Year: 2019
High School Experience: Public school in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with a graduating class of about 180 students. About 20% of the students went to colleges in state and out of state. There was a large percentage who went to community college and the rest went to trade schools or into jobs.
First-Generation College Student: No
Major: History
Minor: German
Extracurricular Activities: I played in the Jazz Band and in the Classical Saxophone Quartet. I was in the Sailing club, Swing club, Ballroom Dance club, and Archery club. I also was heavily involved with dorm life in my [residential] building.

Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Dorm life did because at Hillsdale so much of the campus life surrounds the community aspect of dorm life, so that formed a big part of my life and mindset there. Dorms at Hillsdale take on a life of their own. The dorms participate in homecoming activities in a big way because there’s a deep dorm culture. Dorms will host parties and have contests between dorms and dorms and frats will also compete. The dorms are a great community for people who don’t want to join Greek life but still want to be attached to a place. [See The Collegian article, “Teaming up: Sororities and residence halls work together to create stronger teams and unite campus during homecoming week.”]
