Today we feature Inclusive Education major Lexi Davis from Riverside, NJ (Burlington County).
What is something you’re looking forward to next year at Rowan?
Going to Rowan, I’m looking the most forward to being able to gain knowledge on things I actually find interest in. I’m also looking forward to meeting new people outside of my small hometown.
What is one activity, club, sport or hobby that you did in high school that you’d like to continue with at Rowan?
I wasn’t a very active person in high school, I only did color guard for marching band from 7th grade until my junior year. However, when I start at Rowan, I want to be more active, particularly dancing. I’ve always wanted to take a dance class but I was always too nervous and shy. I feel like at Rowan, I can finally be myself and try new things.
How or why did you choose your major?
Growing up, I’ve been surrounded by teachers. I have multiple aunts and uncles who are teachers. Teaching has also interested me in the fact that I would be helping kids learn and give them valuable knowledge to use in their lives. I’ve also always had a soft spot for the special education department in schools. I feel all kids should be able to get a good quality education with a disability or not.
I chose Inclusive Education as my major because I would be able to give both Gen Ed students and Special Ed students the same opportunity at a good quality education.
How did you get to know campus?
Ever since I started telling my teachers in school that I wanted to study teaching, 99% of them have told me to look into Rowan. In the spring of my junior year, I started looking into Rowan and I really liked everything about it. In November of my senior year, I took a tour and went to a seminar on Inclusive Education and I fell in love with the school and everything about it! I saw myself spending the next four years of my life there, and I still do!
What music do you like?
Personally, I am a fan of all types of music, but I mostly listen to alternative music or pop music. My favorite artists are Twenty One Pilots, Panic! At The Disco, Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, and Ariana Grande.
Well, I love everything about the school. The faculty and other students are really nice, the campus is beautiful, the opportunities never end, the major selection is expansive, and the departments are extremely helpful and useful to each of the students, making everything easy and accessible. I’m so excited that this is where I’m going to spend the next four years of my life!! Go Profs!!
