Extracurricular Activities: I’m in a sorority, I go to a church once a week, and I’m part of a theatre group.
Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
I joined theatre right off the bat, and that’s where I met all of my best friends. It was a great way to get to know upperclassmen as well. UVA has delayed rush, so I didn’t join my sorority until the second semester of my first year. That changed my experience because I’m going to a lot more parties, and meeting a lot more people through Greek life. Through my sorority, I’ve had opportunities to get involved in volunteering. My GPA also went up when I joined the sorority because it has a good reputation, so I was hustling and studying with my sisters. The house is really nice, so I’ll go there to get a meal and hang out.
