Extracurricular Activities: I’m in Greek life, I just rushed a fraternity this past fall quarter. I’m planning on trying to joining some clubs next quarter or next year.
What impact has Greek life had on your experience?
I went through my freshman year not thinking about Greek life at all. I find a huge value in connecting with the people around me. I think building connections and creating a network of people is such an important thing to do. My sophomore year, which is this year, I thought Greek life would be a good way to do it. It’s been incredible. I’ve made so many close friends in such a quick amount of time. Last year I made a ton of friends, but I think Greek life has really facilitated that.
