Why Endicott? Why Division III?
I chose Endicott because I felt that the education I would receive here would give me an advantage after I graduate as the internships would give me a good idea as to what I want to do/not want to do for a career. The campus itself and the beaches were a huge bonus.

Has been skateboarding and snowboarding for 16 years... Almost didn't even play volleyball in high school... "I was supposed to do track and field but I ditched try-outs to play volleyball instead because it looked more fun to me." Also, he is one of three Dan's in his family, so family holidays are always confusing
