Did you walk on to the lightweight rowing team?

Yes

What impact did rowing have on your Dartmouth experience?

Dartmouth rowing was the core of my Dartmouth experience. I learned twice as much about myself, leadership, being a team-player, and overcoming obstacles while rowing than I did in the classroom. I credit the D150s for making me the person I am today.

What impact did rowing have beyond college?

My professional opportunities were greatly expanded by being on the rowing team. Whether it was connections to former athletes or rowers, or a great thing to talk about in interviews.

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

The Lightweight Rowing team was the one part of Dartmouth (besides the people that I met) that I unequivocally loved. Destroying this team destroys most of my connection to the College.
