Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
My sorority has had a big impact because it was a lot of people and new friends I didn’t expect to have coming in because it’s such a big campus. I didn’t think genuine and sincere relationships would develop. Because of the sorority, I joined it was easy for me to get to know a lot of people and build close relationships. I’m really close with my roommates as well and they were random people. The random dorm system had a big impact on my first year of college.
