Why did you choose Drexel? “The coaches and players’ enthusiasm and attitudes regarding the game of lacrosse and the importance of academics to the program as a whole was a huge factor in my decision. The coaches’ knowledge of the game and the Dragons’ competitive schedule will 110% continue to improve my lax skills and lax IQ. I was looking for a program that was full of dedicated hard workers that would push me to be a better player and person; and I feel this team is going to give that to me. The coaches also emphasized the importance and balance of academics.
“The Co-op that Drexel offers is another amazing opportunity that factored into my decision. The program will give me the chance to work in the field and form relationships in my major that can be super beneficial in my career after graduation. The location of Drexel in ‘University City’ was also a draw for me and being on an open campus in the city was something I was looking for. I am super excited to have the opportunity to represent Drexel on the field and in the classroom.”
