“Just knowing that I’m one of the first in my family to go to college and pursue my dreams of getting a degree is what gets me out of bed. The work that I have put in and my family that are now looking up to me telling me that they’re proud of me. It just gives me the confidence I need to get up in to morning and do what I have to do. 

“I chose Rowan because of how familiar I was with it. I just knew coming back home to Rowan was the best choice for me. I also chose Rowan because of how dominant our sports teams are. Being able to do what I love, while being able to be around great individuals all around campus, just makes the decision I made to come to Rowan even better.”

A student in the Rowan University bookstore holds up the new Badflower album OK, I'm Sick.

“At midnight Badflower dropped their new album, OK I’m Sick, and I’m listening as I work. You should check it out! Gritty rock from a younger band out of LA. I’ve seen them live a few times now in Philly, Asbury Park and Lancaster, but I can tell that this is the album that’s going to make them huge.” 

Jen Green, a graduate student in the master’s in strategic communication within the College of Communication & Creative Arts, who commutes from Pitman, NJ (Gloucester County) and is a first generation college student.
