Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
In terms of meeting new people and just being able to branch out, joining any club at a university is helpful. Joining the fraternity here was a big deal to me because my dad was a legacy member and I wanted to continue on that legacy. It has been great being able to meet people through that process and through the events we have and with the Greek Council that we go to. It’s nice that Greek life is a big network and community.
