Are you involved in Greek Life, Honors Program or any other student organization, please tell us about that experience and how it has impacted you.
I am in the Honors Program at SEMO, which has given me a lot of different opportunites. At first, I was able to live in LaFerla on the honors floor, which I think helped a lot with my success during Freshman year. Additionally, the honors contracts that I have done have allowed me more experience with my major and other subjects I am interested in. It has also allowed me to build relationships with my professors.
