Watch out, world! These incoming freshmen — Chase Weigand (left) and Dillon Weigand (right) of Ocean Gate, NJ (Ocean County) — are ready to start their four years at Rowan in just a few months. We caught up with them today as they visited campus for the first time, ready to put down a deposit with their family. 

Dillon Weigand puts his arm around twin Chase Weigand in front of the Henry Rowan statue at Rowan UniversityFirst-generation college students, Chase will major in biological sciences within the College of Science & Mathematics and Dillon will major in biomedical engineering within the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering. 

How did they end up at Rowan? “It just kinda happened,” Chase says — which is the case for so many students. The brothers looked at other state schools, but ultimately decided on Rowan. 

They decided not to room together and are actively seeking roommates for the upcoming year. Both share that the biggest thing they’re looking forward to in September is getting to know campus and make new friends.
