Meet Francis Terry, a Law and Justice junior who commutes from Laurel Springs, NJ (Camden County) and is captain of the track and field team. Francis is a first-generation college student and transferred to Rowan last fall from Neumann University in Aston, PA.
“Just knowing that I’m one of the first in my family to go to college and pursue my dreams of getting a degree is what gets me out of bed. The work that I have put in and my family that are now looking up to me telling me that they’re proud of me. It just gives me the confidence I need to get up in to morning and do what I have to do.
“I chose Rowan because of how familiar I was with it. I just knew coming back home to Rowan was the best choice for me. I also chose Rowan because of how dominant our sports teams are. Being able to do what I love, while being able to be around great individuals all around campus, just makes the decision I made to come to Rowan even better.”
