Did you walk on to the lightweight rowing team?

Yes

What impact did rowing have on your Dartmouth experience?

Can elaborate extensively later, but I can confidently say that rowing at Dartmouth made me a better student, which I have applied throughout my career.

What impact did rowing have beyond college?

As a Resident Tutor (similar to a Resident Advisor) at Harvard University, I was able to apply my experience rowing at Dartmouth toward organizing, teaching, and training over 50 Harvard undergraduate students over 4 years through the Harvard house intramural sport program

What would be lost if Dartmouth eliminates the Lightweight Rowing Team?

A unique opportunity for many non-recruited students to participate in a varsity sport, and a deep rooted community tied to the college through rowing.
