TRANSFERmation Tuesday: Colleen Mariani

Meet Colleen Mariani, a senior Liberal Studies major from Branchburg, NJ (Somerset County).

Why did you choose to come to Rowan?

“I chose Rowan because when I came to visit I knew I was meant to be here. It just felt right. Rowan is my home.”

What is one piece of advice you have for future transfer students?

“Talk to your advisor frequently. Make sure you are up to date on deadlines and classes. It’s okay if you change your major more than once, even if you are a junior or senior. Just because one thing doesn’t work out, doesn’t mean you aren’t good at something else. It’s okay to not know what you want to do.”
