Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Greek life has because it’s a really great way to get connected with people and it’s pretty inclusive. You have to be outgoing and put yourself out there at UW because people generally keep to themselves more. Greek life’s a very good way to become immersed in a community. If you don’t like the people you live with freshman year, Greek life is a really good way to meet people who are socially active. SYM has been a way to extend my impact beyond just the University of Washington. It’s been really cool to get the perspectives of the people because they have the untold stories of the city’s population.
