Q and A with Shweta Raghu

Why Dartmouth?

I loved the energetic student body, terrific professors, beautiful campus, and the D-Plan. I had also never met an alumnus, alumna, or current student who wasn't singing praises of it. Overall, the sense of community at Dartmouth was (and still is) amazing.

How long have you been rowing and what interested you about rowing?

I have never rowed before this. A few friends of mine also started rowing this year, and told me I should try it. I also really admired the intensity and mental discipline of the sport.

What is something about you that might come as a surprise to your teammates?


I lived in Japan for three years. I hope to revive my Japanese at some point!

What extracurricular activities are you involved in on campus?

I am involved with Shanti, the Hindu Student Organization, Multifaith Council, and College Libertarians.

What are your future plans, if any?

I would like to either get a PhD and go into academia or go to law school.
