Did you walk on to the lightweight rowing team?

No

What impact did rowing have on your Dartmouth experience?

It was one of the, if not THE, focus of my Dartmouth experience. It taught me grit and commitment above all else, and that those two values can lead to happiness and fulfillment. Hard to say for sure, but probably the best influence of any experience on my career development thus far.

What impact did rowing have beyond college?

See above.

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

The chance for average sized students with no previous athletic background to discover within themselves a truly extraordinary capacity. Lightweight rowing can be transformative - and it can be learned by nearly anyone.
