Extracurricular Activities: I participated in Club Rugby, but now I’m doing the unofficial skateboarding club.
Did any of your extracurriculars have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Both of them have helped keep me focused and organized and not just in my dorm. Rugby was awesome because I was welcomed in and made friends really easily. I was a more experienced player going in, but there were some who didn’t know much about the sport and they were nice to them as well. I was offered opportunities to play games and meet new people, especially because I was a freshman. I’ve been skateboarding for almost 10 years, so I’ve made a lot of friends through this as well.
