Extracurricular Activities: I’m part of Pitzer Activities (PAct), I work at the Office of Admissions as an admissions fellow, I work on special projects for the Office of Career Services, I’m also an Office of Residence Life assistant, and formerly I was an editor for an on-campus publication, which was run through Claremont McKenna College.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Pitzer Activities. I’ve been part of that organization since my first semester of freshman year, and I was appointed for a [leadership position] when I was a sophomore. I’d say it’s been an impactful activity because of the work skills I’ve been able to gain from it, and being able to make an impact on my college campus. It also helped me get out of my shell and help me meet people I probably wouldn’t have met on campus before.
