Q&A with Benjamin Adler
I loved the sense of community when I visited. Also, I am really into hiking and skiing, and Dartmouth is in a great place to do both of those things.
How long have you been rowing and what interested you about rowing?
I started rowing my freshman year of college. I had previously been a track and field athlete in high school, and rowing seemed to offer a similar opportunity to challenge myself. Also, the team dynamic of rowing really excited me.
What is something about you that might come as a surprise to your teammates?
I love to cook.
What extracurricular activities are you involved in on campus?
I am part of the Dartmouth Investment and Philanthropy Program (DIPP).
What are your future plans, if any?
Just focusing on college for now!
