Q&A with Alexander Abate
Though it hadn’t become apparent to me until late in college application process, Dartmouth combined what I wanted in a school: a moderately sized, engaged, and vibrant student population at an institution that places its prime focus on undergraduate education. Following my campus visit, I immediately knew Dartmouth would be my home for the next four years.
How long have you been rowing and what interested you about rowing?
I walked onto to the team in freshman fall, attracted as a distance runner by the sport’s emphasis on demanding training and competition.
What is something about you that might come as a surprise to your teammates?
Most people don’t know that I’m an avid traveler and that I’ve visited over 20 countries on five continents.
What extracurricular activities are you involved in on campus?
On campus, I’m an admissions tour guide and am also involved with the Dartmouth Law Journal, Friday Night Rock, and the Big Green Bus.
What are your future plans, if any?
To graduate college and possibly attend law school.
