I love the atmosphere of the campus, the graphic design program, and the location. My uncle went here and loved it and I've grown up loving the Hawkeyes for my entire life. My favorite aspect of rowing is... I love the competition aspect of rowing as a sport in general, but more specifically, I love the girls on my team. They are all so great, every single one of them, and that's what makes rowing so unique. We rely on each other so heavily and build such close relationships. It's unlike any other sport. What made you want to become a rower... I had no idea when I came to college that I would end up on the University of Iowa women's rowing team. I had seen a booth for rowing at my orientation but had since forgotten about it until I met one of my roommate's friends, who happened to be on the team. She told me more about it and got me fired up about joining the team. So I talked to the coach, went to the meeting, and started practicing with the team and loved it.
