Extracurricular Activities: I’m a student-athlete. I’m also part of the Scripps Food Recovery Network, where we take excess food from the dining halls and donate it to local women’s shelters.
What impact have your extracurricular activities had on your experience?
My sport takes up a lot of my time, and it’s a really good way to meet people across the consortium. It’s also a cool way to explore California because we have tournaments in all different parts of the state. The Food Recovery Network has had less of an impact on me because it’s less of a time commitment, it’s once every other week. It still has an impact by making me feel like I’m doing something and participating in the community.
