Why Yale?: “When I arrived on Yale's beautiful campus, I was instantly greeted with welcoming arms. The balance between academics and athletics is outstanding, which reflects what I aspire to achieve. As well, the team’s' chemistry is prevalent, united, and supportive -- exactly what I look forward to in college tennis. Most importantly, I believe that at Yale, I will feel at home.”
