Extracurricular Activities: I’m in a Greek fraternity, a business fraternity, I [have a leadership position] in my dorm, I’m a Hilltop Scholar, and I was an orientation leader for the school.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
The business fraternity and being an orientation leader are the most impactful in developing professional skills. I learned how to behave in an interview and speak in a professional setting. Being an orientation leader, I learned how to be nice to everyone, how to get everyone to like you, and making people feel comfortable and accepted. I also learned public speaking from that. We talked a lot in front of a lot of people.
