Why Towson? “I chose Towson because of the immediate at home feeling I felt when stepping on the campus. Compared to other colleges I visited, being at Towson makes my heart complete. The team has a very close bond and very welcoming feel. They are athletes who will push you on the field and off of the field. The coaches are excellent, and have plans for our team to succeed. They have lots of experience and push you to work hard. I love that it is close to home, so my family is able to see me play. The size is not too big, and not too small. I am super glad I get to be competing at a high level, and being held accountable at the same time. I have always wanted to play a sport in college because I know it will keep me on a routine schedule, which is exactly what I like. They have the major I had in my mind, and have sat in on classes of my future major. The overall support system with the academic advisor, my coaches, and my teammates all matches what I have in mind for my next four years. Towson is my perfect match.”


Describe a field hockey memory you won’t forget. And, why? “A field hockey memory I will not forget is playing on Central Penn’s top U14 team, and winning Nationals in Pool B. With the same team, qualifying for U16 team nationals as a U14 team, and being able to beat the team who ultimately won our pool overall. This team my U14 year was filled with hardworking athletes and team players. I am lucky I get to see those amazing people when I play against them in high school, and ultimately most in college. I am grateful to have been a part of so many awesome teams at Central Penn, but the team of that year was unforgettable to me.”
