Nursing student balances academics with rugby to compete in 2017 World Cup

For Penn State nursing students, the first week of senior year is typically filled with activities such as meeting with faculty advisers and finalizing arrangements for clinical placements or the all-important capstone experience. Instead, senior Tess Feury devoted the week to her second passion: rugby.

Feury, a member of Penn State’s national-champion women’s rugby team and a three-time Collegiate All-American, spent the month of August competing with the U.S. women’s national rugby team, the Eagles, in the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup in Ireland.
