Are you currently involved in any sports, clubs, or organizations? If so, please describe what you do in the group.

Muna Onwochei-

“Yes. I am a part of BSO (Black Student Organization), Dental Club, and KalamAfrica. Black Student Organization (BSO) is an organization in which Black/African-American students from various backgrounds come together to empower our experiences as black students. The Dental Club is a club in which pre-dental students come together and build/discuss their plans for the future, as well as participating in shadow experiences at dental offices and receiving information from current dentists and current dental school students. KalamAfrica is a club where students from a variety of African countries come together and talk about African culture, eat food, and share experiences as African students.”

What is campus life like? Have you been to any campus activities? (concerts, game nights, Intramural/Club tournaments, movie nights, etc.)

Muna Onwochei-

“Campus life is pretty exciting. K does movie nights (I've been to a few) which are always really fun. In November, I attended an acapella performance that was held in our auditorium, which was really cool.”

What are the biggest differences between college and high school?

Muna Onwochei-

“In college, you have less classes which is really nice, but you also have a heavier workload. Also, professors hold office hours where you can come back and work on anything you have trouble on, whether that be a lab report or an essay.”

Lastly, is there anything you would like to inform current students interested in K College about?

Muna Onwochei-

“If you're thinking of coming to K, really consider their study abroad programs. At K, they have various programs you could participate in. You can also create your own major here, which is really nice if you want to major in something specific.”
