Goal Zone Kirsten Bombardier 13 Kirsten Bombardier 13 is an interdisciplinary science major with a minor in psychology who has played with the Engineers Rensselaers womens soccer team all four years of her time on campus. The talented centerback who is also the teams senior captain was named the 2012 Liberty League Defensive Player of the Year and was selected for the 2012 NCAA Division III Womens Soccer All-East Region First Team. Bombardier has found Rensselaer to be the ideal place for her to pursue her goals. I plan to go to graduate school for physical therapy and the interdisciplinary science major has given me a lot of choice and is flexible enough for me to get all my prerequisites in said Bombardier. She has also found her professors to be extremely understanding of her obligations as an athlete. Were student-athletes so school definitely comes first she said. But if you do have to miss class for a game the professors are super helpful in terms of allowing you to make up work. Sports in addition to varsity soccer she plays intramural volleyball ice hockey and intramural soccer have helped her grow as a student too. Because I play sports I have had to learn to prioritize and manage my time better said Bombardier. Thats a skill I can use all my life. When in Denmark Rensselaer has a particularly fruitful relationship with the Technical University of Denmark DTU located 15km from Copenhagen. An innovative leader in research and education offering over 40 graduate and undergraduate programs in many engineering fields DTU has a student population of roughly 6000. DTU offers students the opportunity to study in an open-minded research-based learning environment. DTU was a wonderful learning experience for meboth academically and socially said chemical engineering student Courtney Murphy. The accommodation agreement that RPI has with DTU has allowed me to stay in the best housing and to fully immerse myself in the Danish culture.
