(FRESH)man Voices: Joey Coyle

Joey Coyle of Rowan University looks upward toward the sky

“Being part of the track and field team is a plus – the more people you know on campus, the more you get involved in activities. Being a part of the track team was the best decision I have ever made. I was shaky about joining but glad I made the right decision in joining such a close-knit organization that has that winning mentality. Everyone looks out for each other – it’s a great feeling.”

“Rowan has been absolutely amazing so far, as my first year comes to a close. All of the great things I heard about this university were true – everyone is like one big family.”

Joey Coyle, freshman Chestnut Hall resident and Human Performance in Clinical Settings major from East Brunswick, NJ (Middlesex County.)

“There’s a lot more to do here at Rowan than I thought. There’s almost an activity somewhere on campus every day, so I’m never really bored. When I first started at Rowan I didn’t really know what to expect. Meeting my roommates, and living in Chestnut Hall, has really made me feel at home. All of the residents here are all so close to one another, the RAs give us fun activities daily which is also a plus!” Vanessa Moultrie, law and justice major, from Atco, NJ (Camden County).

Chatting with Rowan University on campus residents on a frigid, hectic morning just before finals (seriously, is it really spring yet?!), one thing was clear: the sense of community within their residence halls is what they love most.
