Why did you choose to come to Carleton?
I chose to come to Carleton because it was the good mix between quality academics and competitive baseball. My decision really came down to deciding if I wanted to play baseball in college. Once I made the decision that baseball was something I wanted to pursue after college, Carleton was the easy choice.
How do you balance academics and athletics?
Balancing academics and athletics is one of the most important things that I have learned at Carleton. Maximizing my time is something that I will take with me for the rest of my life.
What was your study abroad experience like?
During my junior year, I went to Costa Rica for two weeks to do research for a biology class during our six-week winter break. Our class was able to experience what it was like to do research in the rainforest. We saw monkeys, frogs, snakes, and everything else that the rainforest has to offer, all while working hard. I definitely wish that I had the opportunity to do something like this again. This is only one example of the unique opportunities that Carleton offers.
What have been some of the differences between college and high school sports?
The biggest difference between high school and college has been the time commitment that baseball requires, not that it is a negative. Most of my friends are baseball players, so what better way to spend your time than playing baseball with your friends?
