Welcome to Rowan! Could you share with us one thing you are looking forward to in college?

I am enthusiastic about becoming a member of a community full of bright, young leaders. I look forward to surrounding myself with individuals who have the same interests and goals as me.

What is one hobby, activity, sport, or club you were a part of in high school that you’d like to continue in college?

During high school, I was a member of a four-time conference champion field hockey team and had the honor to be captain for the 2020 season. I will be a member of the Rowan University Field Hockey program, and I hope to win an NCAA championship. Go Profs!

Is there anything you’re hoping to discover about yourself in college?

I am hoping I grow as an athlete and as a student. I intend to become a member of the Applied Behavior Analysis Club so I can further my understanding of a potential future career.

What majors are you considering and why?

I am considering a major in biological science, as well as a minor in psychology and neuroscience. I have always had a deep interest in STEM and psychology. I hope to one day publish articles on the brain and its impact on behavior and cognitive functions.

Did you tour Rowan or attend any virtual events?

I toured the campus when I attended Rowan University for a field hockey prospect clinic. I was impressed by the coaches and the camaraderie of the players on the team. I attended the virtual, informative session about psychology and learned about the degree options.

Do you have advice for other high school seniors who haven’t committed to a school yet?

Choose a school where you can see yourself thriving and contributing to your college community proudly.

What is one thing about Rowan itself that you liked?

I enjoyed the culture of the field hockey team. They have a competitive and hardworking nature, which makes Rowan Field Hockey such a highly-ranked program.
