How do you create the “away at school” feeling if your home is close to Rowan? The way I create the away at school feeling at home is by acting as if I were still at school and sitting at my desk to do my homework or when we could still go out is going to a local coffee shop to sit and do my work.

What clubs or activities are you involved in on campus? I play club field hockey and I love my team. It’s awesome they are amazing people who are accepting of everybody.

What advice do you have for future freshmen looking at colleges right now? Some advice that I have for incoming freshmen is to make sure that you manage your time wisely but also make sure to relax and have fun and to get involved on campus.

What are you most looking forward to next year at Rowan? I’m going to start taking classes for my minor and also take a sign language class – I have always wanted to learn it.
