What is something you’re looking forward to next year at Rowan?

I’m looking forward to the college experience: staying in a dormitory, making new friends, and participating in different activities.

What is one activity, club, sport or hobby that you did in high school that you’d like to continue with at Rowan?

I’ve done band since fourth grade, specifically I play trumpet. I’d like to continue playing trumpet in college.

How or why did you choose your major?​

I wanted to design games for a while, but I decided to broaden that with computer science. I like being creative, and I’m good at math, so this is my ideal field.

How did you get to know campus?

I visited the campus last summer while looking at colleges. I don’t know it too well, but I think I’ll know much better once I attend the virtual orientation.

What music do you like?

I enjoy most music genres, but my favorites are rock and indie.

Night owl or morning person?

I’m definitely a night owl.

Why Rowan?​​

Rowan is close to home, I have friends going to Rowan, and I was given a good offer to go to Rowan, it just made the most sense.
