Why Monmouth: "The deciding factor why I came to Monmouth was that "feeling" that is was the right thing to do, the right place to go, the right direction to take in my life. It was mostly personal and based on my emotions rather than about the physical appeal of the University. Honestly I have been the beach a total of maybe five times, including the times when we've taken pictures there as a team. I was between three schools being recruited and Monmouth was the one that was closest to home, an hour and a half away, and the one that was most adaptable for me. I was originally a graphic design major, but as it turns out, I found that Monmouth has a great business school ever since I switched my major to business. I was also excited about being a part the first team to live in the MAC and especially now since I left my mark on the wall when we painted the locker room."
