Why Hamilton? Hamilton is a place where the students smile and want to help, and the professors are invested in each individual. I have felt at home on the Hill since the first time I visited.

Favorite Past Sports Memory: My freshman spring, I got to travel with my team to NCAA championships in California, and be a part of history. It was the first time our team made it to the championships in Hamilton rowing history, and we finished the weekend there as the fourth best division III rowing team in the country. It was a magical feeling and I feel lucky to have been a part of.
