Q & A with Maximilian Kinne
From an early age, I found Dartmouth to be a school that excited me. My grandparents, who live in New London, NH, frequently took me to football games and shows at the Hop when I was little. I loved eating in Hanover and walking around the campus in awe. As I started looking at colleges with my future in mind, Dartmouth seemed more and more like the place for me. Set in a beautiful New England location, Dartmouth boasts a top-notch academic curriculum and a supportive community, setting this college aside from the rest.
How long have you been rowing and what interested you about rowing?
Coming into Dartmouth, I knew very little about rowing besides the fact that it is a physically demanding sport. I walked onto the team looking to try something new, and very much enjoyed being in the heavyweight men's eight that won the Green Monster Regatta as a freshman.
What is something about you that might come as a surprise to your teammates?
I have a twin brother who rows for UVM.
What extracurricular activities are you involved in on campus?
Besides crew, I am also on the Dartmouth Cycling Team. I plan to join one or two clubs either this year or the next.
What are your future plans, if any?
Before Dartmouth I was entertaining the idea of going pre-med, but I'm not so sure about that anymore. I started studying the Arabic language and I love it, so if possible I would like to work for the government and use my Arabic while doing so.
