For the next few weeks, the coaches would like to recognize our JCC Sailfish Seniors:

Our first Senior is Alison Harvill- Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA)

College:  University of Pittsburgh Honors College

Major:  Biology, minoring in either Computer Science or Political Science

1.  What are 3 things you like most about the University of Pittsburgh:

  • Research opportunities for undergrads
  • Proximity and relationships with local hospitals and the city itself
  • The support that honors college students receive (such as automatic acceptance into Pitt's grad school)

2.  What are a few things you learned while looking for a college that you can pass along to the Sailfish Team:

  • Look at the current student reviews instead of the school's reputation.  Ranking isn't eveerything

3.  What is or was your most challenging high school class:

  • AP Calculus  

4.  If you could have one song before your swim meet what would it be:  

  • Something Big by Shawn Mendes or Happily by One Direction

5.  What is your favorte ice cream:

  • Salted Caramel Truffle ( I work at an ice cream store, so it changes :) )

6.   What did Al or John teach you most about being a student athlete:

  • In order to get better you actually have to put in effort.  Being physically present doesn't mean anything if you aren't also mentally present
