When it comes to the college experience, Clarke student Tia Grap runs the gamut. Always embracing new experiences with a smile on her face, she plans a reelection bid in student government and one day might command the mic as resident Crusader DJ. With a future this bright, she better wear shades.
Talk about settling in to campus.
My most memorable Clarke experience has been CONNECT week at the beginning of the last year. The first few days I was so overwhelmed by being in college, but I got to know so many people that I am still friends with.
The activities there were so fun, especially AIRBAND. My friend and I choreographed the whole thing for our group and had such a blast. Fake instruments are serious business.
How have you been involved at Clarke?
Through various clubs and organizations on campus, such as CSA, CAB, Residence Life, and many on campus jobs. I love making a difference in whatever I do. That's one of the great things about Clarke, they want to help you make an impact.
Now that you're a head honcho, what's next?
As the CSA Executive Board President, I'm excited to start making changes in a big way. I want to help other students have the opportunities to do all of the great things that I've been able to do, and then some. Everyone has a place at Clarke, you just have to go out and find it.
What about after Clarke?
My goal is to move out to Seattle, Washington and eventually find a career in marketing or public relations. I'm ready to take on the world.
