Julia Geer, Dartmouth's first women's rowing captain, graduated with a degree in ecology in 1975 and went on to her first Olympics a year later. She also competed at the 1980 and 1984 games.
While training for the Olympics, Geer returned to Dartmouth to pursue a master's in engineering in 1983. Her engineering degree and her love of rowing come together in her work at Concept2, a company that develops and manufactures oars and rowing machines.
IN HER OWN WORDS
"Dartmouth is where rowing became such an important part of my life, and it has been integral to my life ever since—both as work and as play. More recently, I've enjoyed watching my daughters and son have similarly rich and formative experiences at Dartmouth—both in sport and in their studies."
