Extracurricular Activities: I play a varsity sport, and I’m in Greek life. I’m also a member of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee, acting as a liaison between the athletes, the athletic staff, and the rest of the student body.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
I’d say both [my sport and my sorority] have helped shaped my life here at Rhodes. Being part of a varsity team, you’re pretty much doing something related to your sport all day every day. Whether it’s practice, working out, eating right, or hanging out with friends that you’ve made from the team. [My sorority] was similar. I’ve gotten the chance to be really involved here. It pushes me academically, and it’s given me the chance to meet people I wouldn’t have met if I didn’t join. It gives you a broader scope of social understanding.
