Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Being an RA is my biggest time commitment and has had a big impact on my experience because you have to be logical with your choices, like what parties you go to. Helping people go through bad situations has been impactful. It’s also nice having your job literally be talking to people so it makes it easier to spark random conversations with people outside of the job.
