(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.)

“I love the Theatre and Dance Department here because everyone makes me feel at home no matter how many times I fall down. I know I have a huge group of people here supporting me and helping me in any way that they can.

The people here are just a reminder of a quote from Maya Angelou that I live by, ‘People will forget what you said, they will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.'”

“I’m very lucky to be studying acting at Rowan because the sense of community here is so strong. In just one semester, I’ve made friends who I already feel so comfortable around and professors who are so willing to help me grow in my field. The small class sizes make it easy to learn and to make friends without the intimidation of a huge lecture class. I’m so excited to see what the next three and a half years have in store for me!” Salma Elwy, freshmen theatre major and Arabic minor from Sicklerville, NJ (Camden County). (First generation American college student).

“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).
