The most important factor for me while choosing where I am going to spend my college years is finding a place where I can get a great education and be able to advance my swimming career simultaneously. After learning about Drexel's five year co-op program and the LeBow College of Business I had no doubt in my mind that this is the type of education I want to pursue. I was also very excited to hear about all of the resources the athletic department has available to students to aid in success both inside the pool and the classroom. Coach Braun and Coach McKenzie have been great to work with throughout the recruiting process and after getting a glimpse at the way they run their team and the type of training environment they encourage I am very optimistic about my continued success in the pool. What really sealed the deal for me was the team itself. After my recruiting trip the guys had already made me feel like I was a part of the team and as a result I am beyond enthusiastic to spend the next four years as part of the Drexel family.

I chose CSUB because it is a wonderful school and team! I really love how everyone to gets along and seems part of a huge family. The team of swimmers and divers are very close and the separation between to two is almost zero to none. This was not a factor I was initially looking for but quickly realized I really liked. I have a lot of faith in this team and think we all will do really well in the WAC. Chris Hansen, the head swimming coach, was very inviting even though I am a diver. Knowing this and that the divers are appreciated in their team is very comforting. Although Melisa Gore the new head diving coach is new, she seems to be doing a great job and looks fun to work with. I am so excited to be joining this school and to be able to come back and hang out with the team.
