  • Our choir had an opportunity to sing at a CES fireside (Nov 4, 2012) that was televised on the BYU channel. (Miquela, 2012-2014)
  • I loved being on the improv team. We really kept building it, and it created something fun for the students to come see on a monthly basis. I ran for student body president and lost. I really felt like the administration sabotaged the race for all of us that year, and the next year they did away with student leadership entirely. I worked in the Learning Lab as a tutor, and that was a remarkable experience, helping my fellow students with their coursework. (Dennis, 2009-2012)
