Noah Freeman

I am a senior in the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources (CAHNR), majoring in exercise science. After graduation, I plan to pursue a master’s in prosthetics and orthotics as I work toward a career as a clinician. This is my second year in CAHNR, but I have spent many years working in a variety of ecosystems.  I have done hands-on work on the Costa Rican coastline, at a New England farm, and for North Pacific commercial fisheries.  In addition to environmental work, I have spent two years aiding in research at the Korey Stringer Institute on campus, primarily focusing on rehydration techniques for athletes, laborers, and those on military deployment.

I have also spent three years as a member and two years as Vice President of the Exercise is Medicine club on campus, and helped to promote healthy exercise throughout the campus population.  Additionally, I am entering my fourth year as a member of the UConn men’s crew team, where I am now Captain and Vice President.

In my free time, I enjoy finding new hammock and slack line locations on campus.

Three Pieces of Advice:

  1. Don’t be afraid of your advisor. Set up frequent meetings and establish a friendly connection.
  2. Take a walk. Campus is full of exciting art and cool plants that aren’t always on the map.
  3. Join a club. All clubs, and especially club or intramural sports, are a great way to meet friends and get active!
