Q and A with Arenne
I'm not a big fan of cities, so the Dartmouth campus and downtown Hanover just looked like the right kind of place for me. I also knew Dartmouth had great language programs and I'm an Arabic major.
How long have you been rowing and what interested you in rowing?
I joined the rowing team this year, my junior winter. I studied abroad in Amman, Jordan and couldn't run outside like I used to (white girl in the Middle East...) so I found an erg at the gym and kind of liked it, so I started training and joined the team when I got back.
What is something that might come as a surprise to your teammates?
I am the daughter of an Air Force officer, moved 12 times growing up, and went to four different high schools.
What extracurricular activities are you involved in on campus outside of rowing?
I am involved in the College Libertarians and Alpha Phi sorority.
What are your future plans, if any?
I plan to serve my country in some capacity.
