Extracurricular Activities: I’m part of a program called BuildOn, and I’ve done some community service through them.
Has doing community service had a particularly big impact on your experience?
I haven’t done a significant amount. I did some community service over the summer for that program. It’s overwhelming when you first come here with all the classes, so it helps that I gained friends [over the summer]. They also gave a little bit of academic support. We had a little preview of Calculus and Chemistry.
