Personal: Daughter of Thomas and Joan Rau ... Has three older siblings: Melissa, Matthew and Jennifer ... Enjoys snowboarding, traveling, and spending time with friends and family ... Decided on Villanova because "Villanova offered a great balance of a strong academic reputation, combined with a lacrosse program that was committed to building on its tradition of athletic excellence. Coach Young's attitude and philosophy in building on the programs strengths going forward was also very appealing, as was my connection to the team members during my visits."
