Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
The Student Government Diversity Commission has had a huge impact because I get to see behind the scenes of what’s being done on campus and can directly have an impact on that and find ways I can help with that. My sophomore leadership organization is a huge thing because it provides a leadership opportunity and a network of friends that you can have. That’s opened up my social circle a lot. Political Discussion and Debate Club has affected my experience greatly because I’ve made a lot of my friends there and get to hear about different perspectives on the issues that I’m studying.
