Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
All of them have shaped me in some ways, but it took a little bit to find each organization. Rutgers is about [94%] in-state students [excluding international students], so the Out of state Student Organization has helped me find my voice. It’s helpful to find like-minded people.
