Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
Entrepreneurship has most definitely. I took my first entrepreneurship class during my freshman year, and after that, I participated in back-to-back summer programs through the Baker Institute. I participated in the EUREKA pitch nights that offers to fund for student projects. This winter I’m participating in the LehighSiliconValley trip where we spend time out there learning about businesses and getting a 3-day externship at a company. I’ve also participated in some exclusive dinners where you get to talk with successful Lehigh alumni in the entrepreneurship realm.
