Did you walk on to the lightweight rowing team?

No

What impact did rowing have on your Dartmouth experience?

Nothing has shaped my identity, my friendships, or my overall experience life than rowing at Dartmouth. Every practice, good or bad, I would not have traded for anything else. Rowing in college taught me the importance of learning beyond the classroom. There is certainly more to who you are as a student than what you bring to the classroom or what major you are.

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

The legacy of generations of athletes at Dartmouth who have all worked for the same goal will be lost to administrative cuts. There is no upside to our cutting of rowing or swimming or golf, but the college sure is losing alumni and current students’ love for the Big Green.
