Today we speak to Dara Donahue, an incoming first-year Marketing major from Wantage, NJ (Sussex County). Dara hopes to live on campus next semester.

Dara stands in the parking garage wearing a Rowan sweatshirt.

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

I am really looking forward to living on campus and getting to make friends!

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 was a part of DECA, a club that builds business and leadership skills, and I hope to join a similar club in college as well.

Is there anything you’re hoping to discover about yourself in college?

I hope to better my education in marketing and business in general.

What majors are you considering and why?

I am considering a career in either marketing or becoming a lobbyist.

Did you tour Rowan or attend any virtual events?

I toured Rowan my junior year before COVID hit and loved it right away. I have attended some virtual events as well.

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

My advice is cheesy, but just listen to your gut and see how you feel at each college you tour.

Like what you see?
