Today we feature Bridget Richards, an athletic training major from Brick, NJ (Ocean County) who attended St. Rose High School in Belmar, NJ. Bridget will live on campus. 

How or why did you choose your major?
I’m an athletic training major and I was inspired by my cousin who is an athletic trainer in Michigan.

Bridget tugs on her t-shirt to proudly show that it's a Rowan t-shirt.

Why did you choose a university relatively close to home?
Rowan is about an hour and a half away from where I live now, so it’s close but not super close! I also plan to live in NJ when I am older so going to a college in state just made more sense. 

What are some things you’re looking forward to at Rowan next year?
I’m extremely excited to meet new people and make fun college memories next year. I plan on rushing a sorority in the spring of my freshman year!

Why Rowan?
Personally attending Rowan just made the most sense. I fell in love with the campus and everything it has to offer!!
