You Are What You Do

A wrestling, oboe-playing, swing-dancing barista. Who wouldn’t want that person as a classmate? Even though it’s not possible for me to take a class with that particular person, that doesn’t mean that I can’t enjoy reading his or her application. I love reading about extracurricular activities. I feel that what people choose to do with their free time says a lot about them. When you’re filling out the activities portion of the application, be sure to let us know about all of your involvements. There are some activities that you think make you sound silly, but we think they actually make you stand out in the crowd!
