Did you walk on to the lightweight rowing team?
What impact did rowing have on your Dartmouth experience?
Rowing was easily one of the central parts of my Dartmouth identity. I love Dartmouth and the opportunity to train and compete at the highest level for my school was something I will never take for granted. I will never forget the hours spent on the Connecticut with my teammates and coaches. It made me a better person and a better student easily.
What impact did rowing have beyond college?
I can confidently say that I would not of joined the United States Marine Corps if I ha not rowed at Dartmouth. The most visual example of this is DP2 connected me with the Marine recruiter through its career center. However, the lessons I learned through Dartmouth Lightweight Rowing, both mental and physical, has made me 10x the Marine I would be without it. Dartmouth Lightweight Rowing gave me the opportunity to serve my country and serve it well and I will forever be indebted to the program for this
What would be lost if Dartmouth eliminates the Lightweight Rowing Team?
It would lose the biggest competitive walk-on varsity sport. No other sport at Dartmouth gives people the opportunity to start freshman year with no experience and end up captain of a varsity sport.
