PLANS AFTER GRADUATION: "I'd like to get into working with animals right away after graduating, possibly get a job at a racetrack working with horse trainers and veterinarians. Then with the experience, I'd like to go to veterinarian school or graduate school for zoology and animal behavior."
HARSLEY ON ROWING AT UCONN: "Rowing at UConn was the best decision I have ever made. It's been the most challenging, humbling and rewarding experience I've ever had. It's had a lot of ups and downs, and there were many times I wanted to quit , but the team always kept me going. I've been on a lot of teams before, but there's nothing like being a part of a crew where you are literally dependent on the person in front of you. A lot of what I have learned in the past four years at UConn has come from my teammates, and I love them for it. And because of UConn rowing, I'll probably be doing the UConn chant at my wedding."
