Extracurricular Activities: I [have a leadership position] in the Whitman Consulting Group, I’m a student-athlete, I’m in a fraternity, and I’m in the Whitman Investment Company.

Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
For me, the Whitman Consulting Group made me like the school more. The people that attend Whitman are a very specific group of people and you’re not always going to fit in with them or feel comfortable, so that made me feel like I had a space where I enjoyed being. In my opinion, if you focus on business here, you should keep that quiet. For example, the Economics department is more focused on theoretical material, but there are a few individual professors who want to push that business agenda. With the school as a whole, you have to tread lightly when discussing business or something that’s capitalistic.
