First-Generation College Student: No
Major: Public Health Science
Extracurricular Activities: I did HERO (Health and Education Relief Organization), where we traveled to Guyana South America to do health education. I was also part of Greek life and Club Baseball.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
Club Baseball and Greek life made such a big school feel smaller. A lot of people say going to a big school is overwhelming because it’s a big college town, but finding your niche in some different clubs, Greek life, or even a service fraternity is a great experience. It brought me closer to all my buddies whether they’re from Maryland, California, New Jersey, or all over the place.
