Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
Over the past couple of weeks with CALPIRG, we’ve had an ongoing pledge drive where we try to get student support. When other students support our organization, they get a small $10 bill and we use that money to go lobby at our elected official’s office. Since I haven’t declared a major, I’m trying to be open to as many extracurricular opportunities as I can. There are lots of interesting people who share the same passions as I do. It’s nice to get to know people who share those same values and have friends to share those experiences with. In terms of a major, we have a really good Environmental Science major here. It’s good for me to dip my feet in the water for things aligning with activism.
