Extracurricular Activities: I’m part of the Associated Students of Pomona College (ASPC), which is the student council. I deal with athletic clubs and organizations and I get a monthly stipend. I’m also part of the Judicial Board, which is one of the few student-led disciplinary boards across the country. In cooperation with the deans on campus, we decide how to reprimand or discipline student cases. I work on the newspaper and play basketball for fun.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
The Senate and the Judicial Board have. Pomona is known for having close relationships between the administration, students, and the professors. This makes a lot of things I want to do easier because I can just go talk to them and ask them about it. All of them have helped me meet a lot of people both on Pomona’s campus and in the 5 colleges.
