Tell us about one club, organization or group of friends that make you feel like Rowan is home.
One of the biggest organizations that made me feel like Rowan is my home is Residential Life and University Housing or RLUH. Ever since becoming a Resident Assistant (RA), I have felt like I truly have a home here. Everyone within RLUH has made me feel like family, and it was definitely one of the best decisions I have made so far in my college career.
Could you share a moment you’ve experienced in which you have felt that Rowan is a welcoming environment for you?
I think Rowan being a welcoming environment started with orientation, along with the PROS and other orientation staff who made that experience possible. I met people who immediately made me feel welcome and am still friends with today.
What’s your favorite thing about one typical day at Rowan for you?
My favorite thing about one typical day at Rowan is being able to see my friends.
What is one thing about Rowan that was a happy surprise for you?
One thing about Rowan that was a happy surprise for me was how active campus was along with how many events are put on throughout the semesters.
Describe for us an experience you’ve shared with a professor or staff member in which you felt like they truly cared about your well-being.
I was a sophomore and concerned about my academic success as well as my choice of major. I talked to a couple professors together after class for a few weeks, and they gave me many study suggestions as well as encouraged me to stick with my current major. They showed me that I could earn my degree and be successful.
