Extracurricular Activities: Since I just got here, I’ve joined a bunch of clubs but just as a member. I’m part of Synapse, which is the neuroscience club, Minority Association of Pre-Med Students (MAPS), and a couple of other clubs here and there. I’m not a huge part of the social life here yet. I thought I’d take a semester to get used to the workload and then next semester I think I’m going to rush a sorority.
Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience so far?
Not really, just because I’m pretty lowkey about my extracurriculars. I just go to weekly club meetings and things like that.
