Q & A with Eva Munday

Why Dartmouth?

Dartmouth has a very unique atmosphere, and that was definitely one of the main things I loved about the school. The student body is pretty close-knit, and the whole campus really comes together as a result of their shared school spirit. I'm also a potential studio art major, and the arts programs here are amazing, which was another plus. Obviously I also love the rowing program here at Dartmouth; there's a wide-felt commitment to both training and your teammates, an athletic balance that I find particularly important.

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

I have been rowing for a little over a year, and I came into the sport as an sprint kayaker. I had raced flat-water sprint for about five and a half years before I transitioned to rowing, and I came into the sport not really knowing what to expect. I love how team-oriented the sport is. Rowing is about coming together as a bunch of working parts to create something much faster and stronger than yourself, not only in the sense of the boat but also the support structure of the team.

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

I am exceptionally awful at contact sports. My first reaction when someone throws anything to me is to shield my face and move out of the way (5th grade basketball was a dark time).

What extracurricular activities are you involved in on campus?

I am not involved in any extracurriculars as of now, though I do enjoy going to the jewelry studio when I get the chance.

What are your future plans, if any?

I'm still trying to figure that out.
