How’s living in Holly Pointe?

I like it! I just moved there from Chestnut! I live by myself. It‘s so nice. I got the whole set up. 

Have you joined any clubs yet?

I’m navigating right now. I eventually do want to join clubs, but I’m just starting to figure things out. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what options I have here music-wise because I do sing!

Why did you choose Rowan?

Honestly, I had a lot of friends who came here pre-COVID, so I would always visit last year. It’s close enough where I can go home if I need to. I like the vibes here too. Everyone’s really friendly, and I like the set up of the campus!
