Extracurricular Activities: I’m in a Spirit Group. They are kind of like sororities, but not as much of a time or life commitment. It’s a big group of girls where we get together and have sisterhood and social events. Most have philanthropy’s they support and volunteer with. I’m in SEAL, where you sign up to read to children in underprivileged elementary schools in the Austin area. I’m also in a South Asian Bible study group.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
I would say my Spirit Group. I’ve met a lot of people from there, and a lot of my closest friends and I bonded during the recruitment process last semester because it’s stressful. I’ve also gotten close to a lot of people in my South Asian Bible study group.
