Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
The Honors program has had a big impact on me because it helped me become more aware of what’s ahead and how quickly it comes. When you’re a freshman, you feel like have four years, but, in reality, it goes by super quick. They help you prepare for that and then for the next level after college.
