Mark Gregory '22 talks about not just one but three of his communities and the incredible friendships that gave him a sense of home at IC.
I could say that I'm part of the three groups and I talk about running club OT and MLK. I've been running like competitively since sixth grade. With the running club, it's a lot more relaxed and actually about enjoying running and enjoying your time with other people who are runners. It's just hard to not be happy when I'm there. We all connect so well. And we've known each other for three months and like we see each other twice a week for running club. I've actually become more invested in OT right now like my relationships with the OT, they're just like a very small group of like, five or six other OT's who I know very well. I'm establishing relationships. And I'm just like, starting to actually become a part of the OT group. With the scholars, it's something crazy, I feel, we just have established such a bond so quickly that something I don't want to lose ever. I can safely say that people in their program my best friends, like I'll always have someone who I can just rely on it's like, it's kind of like family at home. And it's the fact that you can go to them for these little things and these big things and they'll help you out regardless of what the situation is. That's why I find that MLK scholars to be so like amazing.
