Why Penn State?
“I chose Penn State because I felt surrounded by people that were invested in my success, and it provided an environment where I knew I could contribute to others' success. Penn State is a very special place that I can continue my volleyball career at an extremely high level as well as further my
academic goals through top tier programs, which is an opportunity no other institution could provide me."
