My advice to incoming students is...

Get involved! It's the best way to make a big school feel small. I went to the involvement fair and tried a few different things. Once I found what I liked, I was able to meet some of my closest friends and hold leadership roles.

My favorite Penn State tradition is...

THON. THON is our 46 hour no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon to raise money for kids with cancer. It's so amazing watching everyone in the school come together for one cause. I was even a dancer my freshman year.

My favorite Berkey Creamery ice cream flavor is...

Death by Chocolate

I chose Penn State because...

I grew up going here. My dad went here so I loved coming to football games with him and seeing how passionate everyone was to be a Penn Stater. In addition to that, there are so many amazing opportunities here that I never could have had anywhere else. From the career resources to involvement, I feel like I have a leg up going into the real world from going here.

I'm passionate about...
