Balancing Hockey and Academics at RPI
“Learning to balance hockey and academics did not come naturally for me as I struggled a bit freshman year. But with the help of the coaches and my teammates I learned how to become more successful on the ice and in the classroom. The coaches do a great job understanding how demanding academics at RPI is and making considerations when players have class conflicts. The team is also great at supporting each other in the classroom. As a freshman, it is very likely that multiple upperclassmen are in the same major as you, so have taken all the classes before. Girls are always super willing to help you out in classes or with certain subjects."
