Junior Major Moments: Law and Justice Major, Student-Athlete Johnathan Nguyen

Johnathan hurdle jumping for Rowan Track and Field.

Today we feature Johnathan Nguyen, a Law & Justice major from Galloway, NJ (Atlantic County) and a member of Rowan’s Track and Field team. He is a first-generation college student who transferred to Rowan and commuted until COVID-19 shut down campus. 

What is one of your favorite moments with a faculty/staff member or a favorite experience in one of your classes?

One of my favorite moments with a faculty or staff member would have to be meeting Coach Dimit. He introduced me to the school and team and made me feel like family the moment I stepped on Rowan’s campus. 

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

The most interesting thing I learned about this year would have to be in my class “Treatment of the Offender.” You learn so much different material and it wouldn’t be the same without my professor Joel Friedman. 

What pre-professional experiences are helping to support your growth?

The internship I will be applying to in spring 2021 is helping me grow as a person and help guide me to be a better person in school. There are guidelines to make for the internship so I would have to keep my GPA up and make sure I have enough credits every semester.
