Q&A with Gianna Guarino

Why Dartmouth?
I chose Dartmouth because its an awesome place. I love the sense of community that is developed among the athletes and the whole campus due to its reasonably small size. Dartmouth is also a place with all the resources, including dedicated teammates and coaches, that I think will help me to develop the most as an athlete, and as a student.

How long have you been rowing and what interested you about rowing?
I've been rowing for a while; since my freshman year in high school. Racing in the fall, spring and summer. I grew up on the water, around sailboats and motor boats, so when I had the opportunity to do my sport on the water it just seemed right.

What is something about you that might come as a surprise to your teammates?
I love yoga, and I used to race sail boats!

What extracurricular activities are you involved in on campus?
I'm currently participating in Sexpert training.

What are your future plans, if any?
My future plans are to succeed. To me that means reaching my full potential as an athlete.
