I work at the Grove House, which is an on-campus bakery and lunch place. I’m a leader of Pitzer Outdoor Adventures, so I lead backpacking and rock-climbing trips.

Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Almost all of them have. Outdoor Adventures has been a big part of how I found community at Pitzer, a lot of my friends I’ve made through experiences on those trips. The Club Ultimate Frisbee Team has been a big part of my day to day life, and a lot of my friends are on the team. It’s been a cool way for me to meet folks not only at Pitzer but at the other colleges as well.
