Meet incoming transfer student Autumn Britton! Autumn, from Swedesboro, NJ (Gloucester County), is an aspiring Athletic Training major who transferred from Ellsworth Community College in Iowa. She shares more about what she’s looking forward to at Rowan and what she wants to get involved in on campus.
Welcome to Rowan! Could you share with us one thing you are looking forward to at Rowan University?
I am coming from a community college in Iowa, so I am personally excited to come back for the food! I am also beyond excited to finally be able to just go to a university especially one so close to home!
What is one hobby, activity, sport or club that you’re involved in that you’d like to continue at Rowan?
I am excited to join the Athletic Training Club as an AT major and meet everyone and hear stories.
Is there anything you’re hoping to discover about yourself at Rowan? Grow a new skill? Try a new interest? Starting a new activity, sport or club?
I’m hoping that I will discover that I will be a better student than I think I currently am. I am a little stressed about going from a small school with easy classes to a university, so I’m hoping I can discover new forms of study habits for myself.
What majors are you considering and why?
Athletic training. I have changed my major three times, and I truly feel like this one will stick. I did not know I had an interest in athletic training until I had surgery this past summer. I had to do physical therapy and fell in love with that but knew I strictly wanted to work with athletes, so it just fit.
Did you tour Rowan or attend any virtual events? If so, which ones, and what did you think?
I attended the transfer student online orientation and I plan to attend a tour at the beginning of April just to learn the campus a little more.
Do you have advice for other transfers who haven’t committed to a school yet?
Know exactly what you want in a school and do not settle.
What is one thing about Rowan itself that you liked?
The community and a lot of people from my high school attend Rowan so I’m hoping to see some familiar faces!
Like what you see?
