Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
All of them have had very big impacts in different ways. I’ve been involved with student government since my freshman year. I had a phenomenal year that year where I got to know administrative people on a deeper level and work on trying to solve issues at Miami when it comes sexual assault, sexual health, and diversity inclusion. This year I’ve had more of a leadership position and have been involved with passing two pieces of legislation. Personally, I like to get to know people so I’ve joined other clubs to get to know more people on campus.
