Hi, I'm Mike Manning. Each week I will "talk" from a student athlete's point of view at Rosemont College. I have a couple "ins" with athletics so I am able to tell you ahead of time what events are coming up and the exlusive details on our new facilities. I am able to do this because I am the president of the Rosemont Student Athlete Advisor Committee. Not only am I invovled with athletics, but I am also a student ambassador, a Raven Peer Leader and a member of the lacrosse team. I am an Elementary Education major by the way.
I graduated from East Brunswick High School in Central Jersey in 2011. East Brunswick is a very large school; my graduating class exceeded over 700 so it was an odd transition coming to Rosemont College, which is a tight knit community of about 500 undergraduates. However, my transition was smooth due to all of Rosemont's helping hands along with participating in the Bridge Program. I chose Rosemont College because I wanted to help start its men's lacrosse program. I also chose Rosemont due to its small class size and beautiful campus (which is about 10 miles outside of Philadelphia). Soon after completing my first semester at Rosemont I realized this place is a perfect fit for me.
So a couple of upcoming posts I am working on include exclusive access to our new field, R.S.A.A.C. events, Commissioning Mass, family weekend and R.A.C. events. We have a lot of exciting changes happening at Rosemont and even more to talk about. If you ever have any questions for me feel free to email me at email@example.com.
