BackgroundInterview Date:December 2018
Gender Identity: Female
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Graduation Year: 2019
High School Experience: Public school outside of Seattle, WA with a graduating class of about 300 students. There was not a strong culture of going to college. A lot of people went to community colleges and technical institutes, but there was also a portion who went to college.
First Generation College Student: No
Extracurricular Activities: I am a building manager at the gym. I’m in a club called Food Network where we take extra food from the dining hall and deliver it to shelters. I also volunteer at a hospital with the COPE Health Scholars. I did Mock Trial for two years but had to stop because it was too much time.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Working at the field house has because I’m friends with everyone that I work with and it’s kind of like a family. I think students should try to get a job on campus somewhere – not necessarily at the field house – because it really does help with the community and the friends you make here. At least in my experience, I wouldn’t have met a lot of the people.
