Why Penn State?
“I chose Penn State because it was apparent to me when I visited that it had everything I was looking for as a student- athlete in a university. Penn State offers lots of academic support to their student- athletes which I know will help me succeed academically. The training environment is a place where I can see myself excelling to the next level.”
