Meet Law and Justice major Shahadah Samuels from Camden, NJ (Camden County). She is excited to get involved on campus during her first semester as a commuter. 

What is something you’re looking forward to at Rowan?

I’m looking forward to trying new things and meeting new people. I also cannot wait to get involved in activities and/or sports. 

What is one activity, club, sport or hobby that you did in high school that you’d like to continue with at Rowan?
While attending Rowan, I would love to participate in a step and/or dance team. I didn’t participate in this activity in high school, but I would love to for college. 

How or why did you choose your major?
My major has been determined by my life. I’ve been through things that have a lot to do with justice, and I figured that the only way I can change the ways of things that have happened is to join the criminal justice field and not make the same mistakes that people have made in the past.

How did you get to know the campus? 
Unfortunately, I did not get to tour the school and I have learned everything about the school online because of COVID-19. However, I cannot wait until the pandemic is over so I can finally get a tour and the full experience. 

What music do you like?
My favorite music is Hip-Hop and R&B.

Night owl or morning person?
I am a night owl; however I love to do things in the morning so that way I can get things done and over with.

Why Rowan?
I’ve chosen Rowan because after research, I decided that Rowan is the right school for me and very convenient for me.

Like what you see?
