Describe life on campus?

I've never lived on campus but some of the clubs / organizations, such as lighthouse campus ministries has offered a home away from home.

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've had a great time at lighthouse campus ministries and other activities such as SEMO senders and events / competitions that have been challenging and fun. At lighthouse I met a girl who will be my wife this June. With the Semo senders I've had a great time destroying mopeds in backyards and absolutely demoliting jetskis on the Mississippi River. And through competitions I have had wins and losses that have motivated me and boosted my confidence.
