Why Yale: “When choosing a college, I knew that I wanted challenging academics and a competitive swim program. All the schools I was looking at fulfilled both of these criteria; however, what set Yale apart was the inclusive community both within the team and on the greater college campus. The guys on the team welcomed me and made me feel like a part of the team.”
