On Student Culture & Diversity: Every school is going to have disagreements and different views but I feel that my school does very well with making sure that everyone is respected and has a club or organization that is a great fit for them.

On Extracurriculars: There is such a wide range of clubs and sports offered. There is everything from football and basketball to swimming and tennis. I am into more clubs than anything. I am extremely evolved in Future Business Leaders of America and many other clubs and organizations. I can honestly say that they have made me into the person I am today.
