ON CHOOSING PENN STATE
"I chose Penn State because of its strong engineering program and its competitive swimming team where I can both contribute to myself and to the team. One other reason is that when I was roaming University Park I realized that the staff and the students embraced the campus as their home, which is a unique quality for PSU."
