Graduation Year: 2020
High School Experience: All girls private school in Baltimore with about 85 girls in my graduating class. There was a culture of going to college.
Minor: SLAM (School of Liberal Arts Management) which is really similar to a business minor
Extracurricular Activities: I’m in a sorority. I am a research assistant for a psychology lab. I’m also in a program called After-School Newcomb Tutoring which brings in local kids and they can get tutoring services from Tulane students.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
I think research had an impact on what I want to do in the future career wise. It helped me grow academically because I have to do presentations at meetings. I have to develop other interpersonal skills, like doing screenings and recruiting members into the study and learning different procedures for conducting research.
Tutoring has had an impact on seeing the bigger New Orleans community. You’re in a bit of a bubble here at Tulane, so you don’t get to see the other community members without being a part of different service organizations.
