My favorite Berkey Creamery ice cream flavor is...

Raspberry Fudge Tort

I chose Penn State because...

it really is a family! Both my parents met and fell in love at Penn State! I came home from the hospital wearing a "Future Penn State Alumni" onesie and came here a lot as a child! While my parents may have been silently prepping me to come here, they did it in a way that allowed me to make Penn State feel like my home! After being here for four years, I can truly say I have found my home and family at Penn State!! The possibilities and opportunities here are endless! They also will give you the support you need if, and when, things get tough!!

My advice to incoming students is...

don't be afraid to change your mind again and again. I was unsure about my major and changed so many times! Also get involved!!! We have over 10,000 clubs and organizations here on campus so why not try something new!!

My favorite Penn State tradition is...

THON. This is a 46- hour no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon run by the students in hopes of one day ending pediatric cancer!!

I'm passionate about...

Reading Books

I'm involved with...
