Name: Bennett Moore

Year: 2018

Major: Economics

Hometown: Baltimore, Maryland

HC: What are you involved in at HWS?

BM: I am on the Hobart Lacrosse Team, involved in the Second Chances Prison Education Club, I am in the Investment Club, I also am a Student Director on the SAA Board of Trustees, more so I am apart of the Day of Service Club, I am apart of the Orange Key Honors Society program, and this year I was an Orientation Mentor for the Class of 2019.

HC: What motivates you to get involved?

BM: I think it’s a great way to meet new people while getting involved within the community!

HC: What are some challenges being a student athlete and participating in extracurricular activities on campus? What are the benefits?

BM: Time management is a huge aspect of being involved, though it’s difficult, I have truly mastered it and it’s a skill that I’ll carry on in life.

HC: When did you start playing lacrosse and why did you choose to play for Hobart?

BM: I started playing when I was six and have been in love with the sport since. I choose Hobart because you get all the academic experiences that you find at a D3 school, but with a D1 lacrosse program, which for me is the best of both worlds. More so, Hobart Lacrosse has an incredible historical background which I only hope to add on to. 

HC: What’s your favorite thing about HWS?

BM: I enjoy the friendly liberal arts environment with the small classes sizes that HWS offers. The lake is certainly a perk of the school as well!

HC: Describe your daily routine.

BM: I wake up, remove the earplugs from my ears due to the construction behind my dorm, get dressed and then gather all the material that I need for the day and place it in my backpack. After that, I typically force down some yogurt and granola and head off to my classes comfortable that I have completed all my work from the night before. Around noon I go to lunch with some friends on my team and after I head to the quad to relax for just a few minutes. After I commonly find myself in a cube alone on the third floor of the library. Upon completing all of my work I head to practice with my roommate and his little brother. Then once a solid 3-hour practice is completed I go to Saga for a nice five star meal and proceed to Saga sit. If my schedule is open I watch a movie with my friends, get ice cream or call my mom!

HC: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

BM: Getting a career back home in downtown Baltimore City hopefully doing something I enjoy.

HC: What’s your dream job?

BM: My dream job would be handling the top-secret documents in the United States. I want to know about everything that no one else knows about.

HC: What’s your biggest achievement in your life so far?

BM: Convincing my dad to buy me a cop car.

HC: Who do you lookup to?

BM: My dad! He’s the most responsible and morally correct person that I know who holds me up to the highest standards.

HC: Any words of advice for first years?

BM: Keep track of your snack money. But on a serious note, meet as many people as you can, your friends from your first year are your typically some of your closest friends!
