Q & A with Isa
I first heard about Dartmouth because my brother happened to be watching Animal House just as I was making a list of prospective colleges, but I the more I read about it, the more I liked how it sounded: small, outdoorsy, liberal-artsy, and full of opportunities for me to do what I loved.
How long have you been riding and what got you interested in riding?
I've been taking lessons since I was 11, but I first started getting on ponies on family vacations whenever I could go on a guided trail ride in the mountains or at the beach!
Tell me something interesting about you that might come as a surprise to your teammates.
If I hadn't done riding, I would have gotten into gymnastics really seriously - I was taking lessons for both at the same time in the beginning.
What other activities are you involved in on campus?
A cappella (The Sing Dynasty), Pre-vet society, DOSC program
What are your future plans?
I want to make it to vet school with the goal of becoming an equine veterinarian!
