"Having grown up in Tennessee and having spent my entire life in the same city, I wanted to get out and travel for school. After creating my list, and traveling to the various campuses and meeting with coaches around the northeast, I quickly grew to like Hobart and William Smith Colleges. I was taken in by the closeness of the campus, and the friendliness of everyone while on my visit. Everyone truly made me feel welcome and seemed very happy, it felt like a great and friendly community set along a beautiful lake. After receiving my acceptance letters, and discussing with family and friends, it was obvious that I knew where I wanted to attend, and have enjoyed it ever since."
