High School Experience: Private school in Greece with a two-year International Baccalaureate program. In the IB program, we had about 80 people but the entire class was about 270 students. Most of the people in the IB program went to school in the U.K. and about 10 of us went to college in the U.S.
First-Generation College Student: No
Major: Neuroscience, I’m on the Cognitive track
Extracurricular Activities: I play club basketball, I am part of the executive council of my fraternity, I am part of TedX at Union, and I’m part of the Garnet Society which stems from alumni relations and we are in charge of Alumni Weekend, Homecoming, and other events that have alumni outreach. I’m also a resident advisor.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Club Basketball did. Coming into Union, I wasn’t exactly recruited to play basketball here but the coach has some interest in me so I tried out and got cut, but I still needed that competitive basketball experience. Also, being part of the executive council for the fraternity gives you an idea of how an administration works and how the school expects fraternities to function.
