What is your favorite thing about the university?

My favorite thing is the support PSU offers—all the resources are there to succeed, you just have to take advantage of them. 

What’s your best memory from your time at PSU?

Meeting all types of people and participating in the “Educate” conference for high school students. 

What surprised you the most about the school?

The amount of personal attention that the staff at PSU gives you. The staff members really work with you to try to figure out what’s best for you as an individual. 

Can you briefly describe your experience with diversity on campus?

I was involved in a great program called ACCESS, which helps students from different backgrounds learn valuable skills like how to manage money, classes and time. Just one of the ways PSU is so rich in diversity. 

How do you fit into the tapestry of students/faculty here?

I consider myself to be a very open-minded person and love to experience and meet new people. PSU offers me the chance to do that every day.
