Q & A With Rajas Kane


-Why Dartmouth?

I picked Dartmouth because it is a great Undergraduate institution, arguably
the best, and is located in a very beautiful natural setting in which there are
great running and biking routes.

-How long have you been rowing and what got you interested in rowing?

I have only been rowing since freshmen year of college. In high school I was
a full time competitive runner, and in college I wished to continue to
participate in an endurance sport at a very high level. Rowing seemed like a very good
option.  Also, a recruited rower was on my freshman trip and he helped convince me.

-Have you won any academic or rowing awards recently?

I have just taken up rowing, and thus have not won any accolades in that
field yet, however I did win many academic awards in high school, and was a
multiple time All-Area runner.

-Tell me something interesting about you that might come as a surprise to
your teammates.

Things that could be surprising about me are the fact that I am only 17
years old, have gone to school in 4 different countries, speak 5 languages, and am a 
third dan black belt in Taekwondo.

-What other activities do you participate in on campus?

Although my participation in other activities has been limited so far by
schoolwork and rowing, I will soon like to play a greater role in the DOC, and join the
Taekwondo club as well.

-What are your future plans, if any.

I plan on majoring in Physics, and perhaps pursuing something in Mathematics
as well, and become a theoretical Physicist and Cosmologist. After four years
of rowing, I also plan on starting marathon training, and would like to qualify
for Boston, and hopefully get as close to 2:30 as I can.
