Why did you choose Hobart and William Smith Colleges? I fell in love with the Colleges while visiting my brother Bert, (HWS Trustee Herbert J. McCooey, Jr. '76, P'04, P'09) who was a freshman at the time.

How do you stay connected to the Colleges? I sent my two boys to the colleges: Bryan, class of 2008 and Brendan, class of 2012.  My brother Bert is a Trustee.

What makes the Colleges special? Our family connection to the school makes the Colleges special. My son Brendan was the ninth McCooey to graduate from Hobart. McCooey Field.

Why do you give back to HWS? I still feel a connection to the Colleges.

What are your goals as a Regional Network volunteer? HWS is a "hot" school and I would love for more people to know more about it.

What advice would you give to an incoming or current HWS student? Have fun and enjoy the experience. It will be the fastest 4 years of your life (five years in Bert's case). Take advantage of everything that is offered to you and spend a semester abroad.
