Today’s TRANSFERmation Tuesday features Peter Macrina, a junior transfer from Camden County College. Peter is a first-generation History major whose hometown is Philadelphia. He commutes to Rowan from Bellmawr, NJ (Camden County).

Peter stands clasping his hands in front of his suit, smiling proudly in front of his poster at a poster session.
Here I am at the Rowan President’s Day poster presentation held by the History department.

Could you share with us one moment that made you feel inspired or confident that you’re in the right field for you?

One moment that made me feel that my field was meant for me was when I was accepted into the Phi Alpha Theta International History Honor Society conference to be a speaker, which was unfortunately canceled, but it still means something to me nonetheless!

What is the most interesting thing you’ve learned in your major this year?

The most interesting thing I’ve learned pertaining to my major this year is an enormous amount about Woodrow Wilson’s time as governor of New Jersey.

Why did you choose Rowan?

I chose Rowan because I heard about its History program as being one of the best in the state, my mentor being an alum, and it being close by!

What are you most looking forward to at Rowan next year?

I’m looking forward to being back in the classroom and on campus. I miss my second home, the library!
