The figure skating team
at Dartmouth has been a way to continue skating, while
also having a support system and having community here on campus. Figure skating, it is definitely a sport that challenges you athletically, but, then, it’s also all about like making what you do look really easy. And so, there is that artistry where you have to present your skills and present all that you’ve worked on in a very nice manner, (laughs) I guess. We have skaters from all
different disciplines and we also have skaters
from all different levels. I really like the friendships
I’ve built on the team. And, also, when I come to Thompson, it’s a way that I forget
about any stress of the day and I can just skate. Skating in college has definitely improved my overall experience.
