Did you walk on to the lightweight rowing team?

Yes

What impact did rowing have on your Dartmouth experience?

Rowing at Dartmouth gave me an immense love and appreciation for Dartmouth culture and tradition at large, along with a profound connection to my teammates who I will forever consider family. I learned more about myself on the Connecticut River than I have in any other facet of my life. Rowing became a part of me, and with it so did Dartmouth.

What impact did rowing have beyond college?

We’ll see!

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

Opportunities for non-recruited athletes to compete at a D1 level. Would lose decades worth of culture and tradition. Would severely damage the lives of current athletes and their Dartmouth student experiences, especially those that committed to our school with the expectation of rowing for 4 years.
