Extracurricular Activities: I’m in Young Life, I live the 17th Ave. House, which is a Christian house, and I’m a small group leader there, I’m involved in church, and I play intramural sports.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
I live in a house of 55 guys and that’s been pretty transformational for me. As far as a community, it’s been pretty great living in a house with guys of the same faith and of a similar background of me where I can go to a more secular university but come back home and feel that people have similar beliefs as me and help me through struggles. Young Life has been another big community for me because I can meet kids and help them through struggles that they’re going through. The high school that I’m at does not have a lot of who go to college, so being able to be a mentor for students there has been transformational for me. Then with intramurals, I love to exercise and I think they are a lot of fun.
