We are interested in bringing highly motivated scholar athletes to the University. Over the past years students have come to the University from such programs as St. Paul's, Phillips Exeter Academy and The Gunnery, and such clubs as Great Bay Rowing, Durham Boat Club, Upper Valley Rowing Club, Hanover Rowing Club and the Augusta Youth Rowing Club. However, no previous rowing experience is required to be a competitive collegiate rower. The majority of our rowers did not begin the sport until college. The main prerequisites are integrity and the drive to achieve a common goal.
