I chose Niagara University because it is a school that best suited my future career path, and had everything that I was looking for academically, athletically, and socially. I was looking for a program with a family atmosphere and a commitment to training; and I felt like I made an immediate connection with the swim team at Niagara. Coach Ben Nigro, who swam at UNC-Wilmington, is also a coach that I felt could take my swimming to the next level. I look forward to my development as a student-athlete at Niagara. “Go Purple Eagles!!”

When I first stepped foot on campus I knew that I would commit to Iona. The team was very welcoming. The campus was the perfect size for me. It is close to NY and also close to home. Go Gaels!

I not only chose Canisius College for the great education they offer but I want to swim in an environment where I know people who will push me to be better in the water. I will be joining 2 friends from High School Varsity who helped get us to 2nd place in public schools at States 2 years ago. I hope we can push each other to be even better than we were then. I like the coaching staff at Canisius as well which helped make my decision easy.

I’m happy to announce I’ve committed to Niagara University to become part of the Purple Eagles and join a fabulous team at the nest. I would like to thank all of my friends, family, and coaches who encourage me to fly, back, breast and free.

I am excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at Niagara University! I loved the team atmosphere and the team welcomed me as one of their own on my official visit. I also loved the small school environment and the ability to be anywhere on campus in a matter of minutes. Special thanks to my Mom, Dad, my sisters, my teammates and coaches for supporting me through the college process and helping me continue my swimming career. Let's Go Purple Eagles!!

During my official visit to Rider University, I knew I wanted to be a Bronc. I enjoyed the atmosphere, the people, and the community; I already felt like I belonged there. I intend on being an asset to the team and community to the best of my ability. I am excited to make great strides in both my academic and athletic careers. Rider University will help me achieve my full potential. Go Broncs!
