I chose Lake Forest College because I'll be given the opportunity to thrive in the classroom and contribute in the pool. From the moment I walked on the beautiful campus for the first time, I fell in love with it and all of the amazing students who made me feel warm and welcome during my visit. My future teammates taught me that you can always have a good time while also working hard. I'm especially excited to begin the next chapter of my swimming career with Coach Tashlitsky, someone that I know I can trust to help me grow as both a student athlete and as a human being. I'm super pumped and I can't wait to be a Forester in the fall!
