Tell us about your first month at Rowan!

It’s been really fun! I’m with all my friends now, I like all my classes and I like the college life instead of going to community college and commuting. I really like living here.”

What was it like transitioning from community college to Rowan?

It wasn’t that different because I visited here a lot so I kind of knew what was happening and knew what it was all like but classes are pretty much the same. I guess I’m just adjusting to not being around my family all the time.”

Why did you choose your major?

“My aunt was a communications major in college and she kind of sat me down and said, ‘Listen, I just see you doing this’ and I looked into it. This was early high school and then I looked into it and I really enjoyed it. That’s why I chose it.”
