Extracurricular Activities: I’m a varsity athlete, I do research, and I’m part of the Health Professions Advising Group.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
Being a varsity athlete has had the biggest impact. Coming into college, it gave me a set group of friends and a group I could go and talk to about issues I was having. It also gives an outlet to get away from school and do something physical to relieve stress. It takes my mind off of classwork and anything else that’s going on.
