Why did you choose to go to Calvin: I was ultimately looking for a school that had a good Engineering program, but was also a smaller school, and Calvin had that. I was very excited to find out I would be able to play softball here while continuing my academic career. When I came to visit I felt a sense of community and I noticed how nice and welcoming everyone on campus was. I also liked how it was a Christian college, and they try to implement that into everything here. Calvin just felt like the perfect fit for me.

Who is your favorite sports figure: I really like Haylie McCleney. She just graduated from the University of Alabama, and she played as their centerfielder on the softball team. I went down to watch a game and you could just see how much passion she has for the sport and how hardworking she is.

What is your favorite Bible verse:  Jeremiah 29:11

What is your favorite food: Venison and buttered noodles.

What is your favorite movie: The Patriot or Miracle

Personal Info: Daughter of John and Michelle Groen ... majoring in chemical engineering.
