Welcome to Rowan! Could you share with us one thing you are looking forward in college?

I am most excited for a new chapter in my life! I can’t wait to branch out, meet new people and have more freedom and responsibilities.

What is one hobby, activity, sport or club you were a part of in high school that you’d like to continue in college?

I have been part of the Southern Regional field hockey team since middle school, as well as several club teams. I will be playing on the Rowan field hockey team in fall 2021.

Is there anything you’re hoping to discover about yourself in college? Grow a new skill? Try a new interest? Starting a new activity, sport or club?

I am interested to see how well I can do on my own while being a part of Rowan’s nutrition program and field hockey team.

What majors are you considering and why?

Nutrition because I have always been interested in how one’s diet and activity level will affect their body.

Did you tour Rowan or attend any virtual events? If so, which ones, and what did you think?

I visited Rowan in February of 2020. Coach Andre brought me about campus, and I immediately loved it and knew it was the perfect college for me.

Do you have advice for other high school seniors who haven’t committed to a school yet?

I would say that it is most important to listen to your gut and if you really like the campus and what the college can provide to you, then it is a perfect fit for you!

Where are you going to live next year?

On campus!

What is one thing about Rowan itself that you liked?

I loved that as I visited, I felt a sense of comfort.

Like what you see?
