Why Dartmouth?
I chose Dartmouth because of the excellent undergraduate engineering program, the wide assortment of liberal arts options, and the strong cross country and track programs.
How long have you been running cross country and what got you interested in cross country?
Because of my interest in soccer, I never joined the cross country team in high school, but I did compete in the 1500m and 3000m on the track for all four years. I have always enjoyed distance running, especially on trails, so cross country was a natural step for me.
