Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
They all have had a significant impact to different degrees. Through my improv troupe, I met a lot of people I otherwise wouldn’t have met just because of how MIT works socially you often don’t meet a lot of people because of where they live on campus. The improve troupe is an eclectic group of kids, and I’m lucky enough to be good friends with a group of kids from there I would have otherwise probably never met. The same thing goes with the fashion magazine.
