Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
UW is a really big school, so they narrow the community down. BSU is the Black Student Union and is the umbrella for all the Black Student organizations on campus. They have the biggest impact, the most funding, and they throw the most events. [The undergraduate enrollment is about 32,000 students.]
