Why Slippery Rock? “I chose my college because when I went there, for the first time, it felt like home. I was comfortable, loved the atmosphere, and the academics were perfect for me. It’s also close to home, so I will be able to see my family when I need, which is very important to me. I’ll also be able to stay in contact with people I know because I’ll be nearby.”


Describe a field hockey memory you won’t forget. And, why? “My favorite memory was when our team won WPIAL for the fourth year in a row. Knowing I was there for three of them and contributed to two of those years was really cool. The feeling of the gold medal being placed on you is a feeling of no other and I hope to receive that honor again for the fifth year in a row.”
