Did you walk on to the lightweight rowing team?

Yes

What impact did rowing have on your Dartmouth experience?

I walked onto the team late in my Dartmouth career after an abroad term. I had no prior rowing experience, and the team had no reason to let me walk on. Regardless, the coaching staff and team gave me a chance. For the rest of my time at Dartmouth, I was able to build, progress, and compete alongside incredible athletes and found my favorite community on campus. My best friends and fondest memories of my undergraduate experience come from my time on the lightweight team.

What impact did rowing have beyond college?

I learned more about discipline, teamwork, sacrifice, and the results of hard work more from the team than any academic class at Dartmouth.
