Extracurricular Activities: I do rock climbing, and the school provides transportation to the bouldering gym twice a week. I’m also in a club called Pugilism which teaches Brazilian jiu-jitsu and boxing.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
I could talk about Pugilism Club for hours. I didn’t even know what Brazilian jiu-jitsu was before I came here, and I wasn’t expecting it to be terrible influential in my life, but it was. It’s awesome trying new things that keep you active. I really enjoy boxing too, and I wouldn’t have tried either on my own.
