Rutgers fifth-year senior Kamila Cieslik, a 5-foot-11 right side from Knoxville, Tennessee, has seen a little bit of everything during her time with Scarlet Knights.

She joined us talked about what it has been like watching the New Jersey program claw its way out of the trenches to its most successful conference season in the school’s Big Ten history, what she’s learned from playing with so many international players that currently make up half the Rutgers roster, how her early love for horses contributed to her career aspirations, and, fo course, her favorite place to eat around campus.
