My advice to incoming students is...

Don't be afraid to fail in trying new things when you first come to college, whether that would be making new friends, joining a club or organization, or finishing an assignment. Failure is what helps you learn and grow as a person. College is a chance to shape yourself into the person you want to become in the future.

My favorite Berkey Creamery ice cream flavor is...

Peanut Butter Swirl

My favorite Penn State tradition is...

The White Out game!

I chose Penn State because...

Penn State was at the very bottom of my list when applying to colleges (I applied to 18!). When I came back home after my accepted student visit, I started noticing everyone knew someone who went to Penn State, is currently enrolled at Penn State, or went to Penn State themselves. The Penn State name is known across the country and the world. Ultimately, my decision to come to PSU was because of the amazing alumni network and the endless possibilities to make connections and have success after graduation.

I'm passionate about...
