High School Experience: Public school in central New York with a graduating class of about 100 students. There was a culture of going to college among the high-achieving students, but only about half of the students went on to a four-year school.
First Generation College Student: No
Extracurricular Activities: I’m in student government and I sing in an acapella group.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Both absolutely painted my experience here at Union. They allowed me to get to know so many different people. Especially with Student Government, getting involved early and initially getting to know so many people in my class made me become the person for people to go to with questions and helped me gain a well-rounded knowledge about the college. I think that propelled me even more to learning more about Union, how it operates, the fundamentals of the student body, how admissions works, relationships between the faculty, staff, and administration, and all that stuff. My experience at Union has been pretty unique in that I’ve been able to meet so many different people, especially outside the student body.
