Why Radcliffe? Radcliffe offers a rare community that supports its women as much as it challenges us to dig deeper than we ever thought possible. Rowing alongside these remarkable women every day encourages me to be a better student, athlete, and person.

If rowers had a walk-out song, what would yours be?
