Q&A with Joel Weng
I love the smaller class-size and focus on undergraduate studies. Plus the rural location is a bonus. For the most part, the community always seems so friendly and inviting.
How long have you been rowing and what interested you about rowing?
I began rowing during the summer before college. I’ve always enjoyed being out on the lake in kayaks or canoes. Also, I enjoy cardio activities like running and cycling. Since I was young, I’ve been fascinated by the UW-Madison rowers out on the lake near my house, in their perfect synchronization and rhythm.
What is something about you that might come as a surprise to your teammates?
I enjoy studying and playing poker.
What extracurricular activities are you involved in on campus?
I’m a tenor in the Sing Dynasty A Capella group. I’m also involved in the Dartmouth Finance Society.
What are your future plans, if any?
Right now, I’m looking at a career in finance or business.
