Extracurricular Activities: Executive board for my residential college, a competitive ballroom dance team called BLAST, and Students Consulting for Nonprofit Organizations.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
The Student Consulting Organization has given me some insight on what I want to do in the future career-wise, while equipping me with skills I wouldn’t develop in class. Being on the dance team is a good social community that I’m happy to be part of. It’s a big-time commitment as well, upwards of 10 -12 hours per week. It’s been a great way to stay fit, build a good community, and have the discipline to manage it outside of schoolwork.
