Extracurricular Activities: I’m in student government, I’m a resident assistant, I’m in Greek life and [have a leadership role] in my sorority.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Yeah, they all have. As much as I’ve gotten involved on campus with clubs I have learned a lot of skills and made a lot of friends. It’s helped me a lot socially and helped me in learning skills as well. With every club, you learn a different type of skill, like, being part of student government helped me have a voice for my class and be a part of administrative decisions and being a resident assistant allowed me to mentor freshmen. Greek life is completely different because being sisters with other girls is really nice.
