Q&A With Paul Champeau
I chose Dartmouth not only because of their great crew program but also because of the academic freedom they provide. Here I have the ability to major in something technical like mechanical engineering while still experiencing a liberal arts education.
How long have you been rowing and what sparked your interest?
I have been rowing ever since my freshman year in high school. At the time, I was interested in crew because I really wanted to try a sport that is different from every other sport I played as a kid.
Have you won any awards?
My senior year I was elected to be team captain.
I plan on being an engineering sciences major with a focus on mechanical engineering.
