I chose Lenoir-Rhyne because of the rigorous academics and well-established swim team the college has to offer. Coach Paul and all of the kids on the team made me feel welcomed as soon as I was on the campus and over the course of my visit I realized that I wanted to be a Bear. I've only been swimming for four years, so I thought Lenoir-Rhyne would be the best fit for me to develop and become a better swimmer while having a phenomenal education. I'm so excited to spend my next four years there! Go BEARS!
