Why Yale? “As a walk-on athlete, academics were a clear priority in my college decision. At Yale, I found the perfect combination of leading academics and strong athletics that accompany the beautiful campus and friendly student body. The possibility of being able to play on such an incredible lacrosse team with a great group of girls was also a huge driving factor behind my decision.”
