Meet transfer student Sam Brodhecker, a junior psychology major from Roxbury, NJ (Morris County) who lives in 220 Rowan Boulevard.

How has a faculty or staff member here helped to connect you with the next step for your career?

“When I first came to Rowan, I thought that I would experience difficulty in my educational and professional journey because I wasn’t aware of all the resources Rowan had, nor could I take advantage of them. However, after meeting with my advisor Megan Kately before the semester began, we discussed in depth my plan for my future at Rowan. She gave me resources for clubs, discussed concentrations I could focus in, and overall presented me with ample opportunities to get involved and I am very thankful for that.”

Tell us about your transition into Rowan. 

“I was nervous to transfer, but immediately felt welcomed and at home once I moved down to Glassboro. I was excited to continue my education journey at a school I have always loved. Additionally, I was nervous about my classes, but was blessed with great professors and a functional schedule, which has helped my adjustment to Rowan tremendously.” 

And lastly, why Rowan?

“I chose to transfer to Rowan University because of the professional opportunities they provide. My sister, an alumni of Rowan, has succeeded in her professional career, and attributes many of her successful opportunities to Rowan. I am excited to see what Rowan has in store for me!”

Meet Rowan Choice student, Jakira McCoy, a sophomore business major with a minor in African studies from Camden, NJ (Camden County). Jakira lives on campus in Holly Pointe Commons as a Rowan College at Gloucester County community college student enrolled in the Rowan Choice program, which allows her to have the full college experience on Rowan’s campus, before she transfers to Rowan University. 

Jakira sits on her couch at Holly Pointe Commons“I chose Rowan because it was closer to home and I did not want to be too far from my family. I also chose to come here because of Rowan Choice​. It was a cheaper option and saved me a lot of money. Since you are technically enrolled in a community college, you still pay community college tuition. It helps a lot and makes the transition to Rowan University easier.”

Meet transfer student Katherine Villacis, a junior civil engineering major  from Beverly, NJ (Burlington County) who is a resident assistant here on campus. Katherine recently served as a student panelist on Rowan’s first generation college student symposium, hosted by Flying First

Could you share a moment you’ve experienced in which you have felt that Rowan is a welcoming environment for you?

“One of my first experiences since I transferred was just taking the leap and getting involved. Being an RA helps me know what’s going on around campus and connect me to resources. I’ve met returning and professional staff who want to see me succeed. Flying First, Rowan’s support program for first generation college students, is also welcoming environment. We recently had a symposium that was open to other schools, with student panelists discussing their first generation experience.”

Why did you choose Rowan?

“I chose Rowan because of convenience. I went to Rowan College at Burlington County and the programs here made it easier for me to transfer. I didn’t know at first where I wanted to go, but heard great things about the engineering program and knew this was something that could work out.”
