Q&A with Mark Widerschein

Why Dartmouth?
I chose Dartmouth because of it's small size, incredible academic reputation, natural beauty, and the flexibility that the D-Plan offers. I also loved how close to skiing we are!
How long have you been rowing and what interested you about rowing?
I began rowing the summer before college as a way to change up running training. When I got to Dartmouth and realized the possibility of joining the team was out there, I was thrilled! I love the endurance aspect of it, and that it's the kind of sport where you control how good you get entirely with how hard you're willing to work.
What is something about you that might come as a surprise to your teammates?
I'm a twin.
What extracurricular activities are you involved in on campus?
I'm a photographer for the D, involved with Great Issues Scholars, and also active in the DOC. 

What are your future plans, if any?
I don't really have concrete future plans right now, but I'd like to pursue Environmental Studies and Government here at Dartmouth!
