Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
Since I’m a varsity athlete, I was recruited before coming here. Being a student-athlete is a big part of my collegiate life. I have practice Monday through Friday and when we’re in the season, our weekends are spent with my team. My social circle revolves around my team when we’re at practice, the competitions, and hanging outside of classes.
