A moment where I felt inspired and confident that I was in the right field for me is taking specific classes that enlightened me and bettered my understanding of what my career path is going to be. Taking required classes for your major and enjoying them and benefiting from them is a great feeling.

Honestly, I chose Rowan because it was more affordable than some other schools and because it was still close enough to home. The campus is easy to navigate and the housing is above average in my opinion, compared to most colleges. I knew I could get a good education that was within my means. 

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

Next year, I am looking forward to taking more major specific classes, and getting involved as much as possible for my senior year!
