Why I Chose Bucknell: "Bucknell really chose me.The highly competitive Division 1 program and the real team feel throughout the squad were the two factors that made the biggest difference when it came to decision time."
Studying Abroad: "Technically, I am already studying abroad and have loved every second of it.Where my teammates and academic colleagues seek an international experience somewhere other than the United States, their home, this is my international collegiate experience away from my home, Australia."
