My most formative experience, which continues to prove valuable thanks to the many unique situations I’ve found myself in as a result, was being a Resident Assistant. There is no greater adventure than working in the residence halls, and I happily dedicated a lot of my time on campus to be with residents and to support my fellow RAs. Another cornerstone of my campus involvement was the Outing Club. This UD community served as an escape from traditional campus life, and ensured that I spent way too many hours in Perkins interacting with students and staff alike. Many other opportunities including the Blue Hen Leadership Program, the Entrepreneurship Club, Student Alumni Ambassadors, and UD Alternative Breaks also played major roles in surrounding me with good people, and helping me spend my time in meaningful ways.
