Hello! Rowan Blog editor here. I’m Cristin Kastner Farney. Nice to meet you! We would lovvvvvve for you to share your voice and your story with future Rowan students. Our team works for the Admissions office, so our primary focus is sharing stories that future students would like to read about. Stories that are positive, informative and entertaining.

We seek stories that represent all walks of life and all types of students. We’re looking for stories from a first person perspective – we’re looking to see YOU in the story. What’s your experience? Casual in tone is super. Nothing formal here. No grades. 🙂 Scroll down for possible story ideas. 

If you’re interested in submitting a story for consideration, please email it to rowanblog [at] Stories should be 500 words or shorter. Once we have your story, we’ll review it and get back to you. If you’d like to submit photos, you’re welcome to. However, once we prepare to publish we’ll schedule a professional photo session for you with one of our team members.
