Q and A with Hank Savage
I chose Dartmouth for its great academics and the collaborative spirit that exists in both the classroom and on the lightweight crew team. The motto at my high school was "A Man for Others" and I believe that Dartmouth is a further extension of this philosophy.
How long have
you been rowing and what got you interested in rowing?
I have been rowing since my freshmen year in high school. After running cross country in the fall, I was planning on playing lacrosse in the spring. I decided to train with the crew team to stay in shape. Right out of the gate I was I was faster than a lot of the other kids on the erg so I decided to give freshmen crew a try.
Have you won any
academic or rowing awards recently?
In 2008, my boat came in 1st Place Stotesbury Cup Regatta, 1st Place Philadelphia Catholic League Championships, and 1st Place St Andrews Regatta Lightweight 8. In 2009, my boat won Philadelphia Catholic League Championships and I received the Men for Others Award for my crew team.
Tell me something interesting about you that might come as a surprise to your teammates.
I play the guitar.
What other activities do you participate in on campus?
In addition to lightweight rowing, I am a member of the Dartmouth College Knights of Columbus.
I plan on getting a degree in Economics or History from Dartmouth College, study abroad and ultimately work in either the financial or consulting industries.
