Today we speak to Madison Jacobs, an incoming first-year Elementary Education major from Franklinville, NJ (Gloucester County). Madison tells us what she’s looking forward to at Rowan.
Welcome to Rowan! Could you share with us one thing you are looking forward in college?
I am looking forward to meeting new people and getting involved in different clubs/activities.
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 am involved in my school’s FEA Club and also am a state ambassador for NJFEA. I am looking into continuing my involvement with these types of clubs while in college.
Is there anything you’re hoping to discover about yourself in college?
I am looking to expand my involvement throughout campus.
What majors are you considering and why?
I am majoring in Elementary Education because making a change in a child’s life has always been my biggest dream.
Did you tour Rowan or attend any virtual events? If so, which ones, and what did you think?
I have toured Rowan and have also attended a future teachers’ convention. Rowan felt like home from the very first time I went there, and I’m super excited to spend my next four years there!
Do you have advice for other high school seniors who haven’t committed to a school yet?
My advice for a senior who hasn’t committed to a school yet is to simply follow your heart. You know what’s best for you, and the place that feels like home the most is the place you are meant to be!
Where are you going to live next year?
Commute from home.
What is one thing about Rowan itself that you liked?
One thing about Rowan itself that I liked is the family oriented relationship between everybody on campus.
